ONWARD / FORWARD 2020
January 09 - February 15, 2020
2020 is the start of a new decade, a chance to move onward, repair and invigorate, to bring forward art that challenges the norm. Crayons are a creative tool for children. However, Christian Faur has made them static with a digital mapping color coded system to realize his subject matter, broadening out the way art can be made. Jacques Roch instilled a liveliness in his art that keeps on entertaining us with his energetic spirit and mischievous humor. Glass always engages us with its infinite perspectives. Like a crystal ball, Kathleen Mulcahy’s glass drops take you wherever you wish to go. Paul Glabicki’s drawings are a relentless accumulation of imagery and data existing in an abstract space. The completed drawing becomes a unique configuration and multilayered collage to be read, discovered and explored at each viewing. Margaret Evangeline’s gold aura could be a thing of kings. However, her use of gold is as a veil where one can view the future not without challenges. It glitters on the surface and allows us to look beyond. Moon Beom’s medium is his hands constantly making split decisions into the unknown. He transforms historical Korean landscape painting into the present. Blanche Nettles Powers’ has the unique ability to create colors and textures that never existed before, through layering, scratching and taking away. Allowing the viewer to be more inquisitive in finding new ways of interpreting art.
