Nature and Landscape (Multi-Day Event)
The Fine Arts Gallery is pleased to present Nature and Landscape featuring the work of two New Jersey artists, Francesca Azzara and Eileen Ferara. Each artist has her own unique vision of the landscape, from observed nature to the interior landscape of the mind. Landscape painting has a long standing place in the history of art and can be traced back to the first cities of Çatal Hüyük to the contemporary galleries in Chelsea. We invite you to leave the mundane world and fill your eyes and imagination with the encaustic paintings and installation of invasive species that hang on the gallery walls. Francesca Azzara states: “The landscape, or some manifestation of the landscape, has continually re-emerged in my work over the past 20 years. While landscape painting is steeped in history and place, my imagined landscapes, represent an interior universe of the conscience. These works are a manifestation of my inner self and metaphorically the visual settings reflect my thoughts, fears and dreams. Often, my work informs me of deeper issues that I have unconsciously avoided. It is a visit to a distant memory…one that cannot be fully recalled but can be comprehended. The visual environments I create are of a topography that is familiar but one that I have never visited. It is that fleeting moment, the ambiguity in the psyche, which I strive to make real.” In the words of Eileen Ferara, “As my subject matter expands, I research and include other plant species that I encounter in the urban wilds of the greater NYC area. Japanese Honeysuckle, Empress Trees, and Trees of Heaven are all considered nuisance non-native species that have taken root in the area. While each plant has its own unique story, they also have some commonalities; successful reproduction strategies, the ability to thrive in areas where other species are challenged, the tendency to outcompete indigenous species, and all were introduced to North America by humans. My work is inspired by the beautiful design of these objects, and the imaginary environments I create are a reflection on the fragility of balance in the environment and our relationship to the places in which we live.
