"Conceal and Reveal" the gorgeous show that was unable to open in our Framingham location featuring Core artists Kay Hartung and Denise Driscoll finally opens to the public this week!! Come join them on Friday July 7 from 5-7 for the opening reception that corresponds with SOWA's first Friday. You can also hear more about ideas and process during the artists talk scheduled for Sunday July 30 at 3:00. This show features small and large scale paintings in Acrylic and Encaustic. In this body of work the artists use additive and subtractive processes to explore hidden worlds.
Denise talks a little bit about the theme:
Kay and I are both working to make visible the things we can't see. In Kay's case, she uses microscopic cellular forms as springboards to develop incredible patterns of color and shape.
Kay Hartungs Cell Migration 4.
I'm trying to create visual representations of bountiful information settling into new relationships, also with patterns of color and shape. We both paint over our work and let earlier marks reappear through more recent layers. And we often destroy (or distress) new layers to bring previous information to light.
Anyone who is tired of these gray New England days will find seas of color in this show, and lots and lots of opportunities to take a deep breath and fall into these energetic and meditative visual experiences.
