A preview of works by SUSAN WIDES from This Seasons is now on exhibit at Kim Foster Gallery in Spring Forward through April 29, 2017.

“By freezing complex perspectives, Wides invites us to come alive to vision as a kind of inventiveness, an integrative faculty that, moment by moment, connects us to our surroundings and, ultimately, to one another.”  Carter Ratcliff from the essay Susan Wides: Seeing Seen

 

 

Spring Forward
March 23 - April 29, 2017

Moon Beom’s paintings conjure a mystical world of mountains, cliffs, rivers, and forests that materialize from complex abstractions. This world could be anywhere between welcoming and treacherous.

Sydney Blum uses the idea of Icarus flying towards the sun as the impetus of her new work. She creates the motion and sensation of flying, distorting colors, lines and shapes in such ways as to produce seemingly contradictory vibrating waves of energy.

Kwang Young Chun is orchestrating thousands of units to produce variations of surface texture and composition. The richly evocative material he uses transcends its tradition. While imbued with Korean nostalgia, Chun’s unique constructions speak on universal terms.

Margaret Evangeline’s paintings are a result of devotion to the vulnerabilities of the discovery process, of finding one’s way to significant content through maintaining a stance of openness to failure.

Christian Faur’s work deconstructs and transforms. He creates computer systems that convert code into an infinite set of possibilities of color, pattern, and tonality.  His unique crayon process suggests element from both high and low culture.

Blanche Nettles Powers’ inspiration is nature, but her outcome is more ethereal. The surface appears to be an even translucent layer, but in reality is comprised of hundreds of different sized strokes and markings.

Jim Toia manipulates nature. He takes advantage of the way in which mushrooms drop their spores, corralling them to make incredibly complex visual networks of swirling, twisting, and indefinable imagery.
