Layered Cadences - Four Artists
November 29, 2012 - January 25, 2013
Although the four artists in the exhibition “Layered Cadences” may have different conceptual and formal approaches to art making, their work has a common thread. Each artist, true to her own thinking, uses materials and techniques to arrive at finished art pieces that have an aesthetic connection to rich surface and visual rhythm.
Through her process and use of symbolic imagery, Carolyn Buck Vosburgh’s drawings and wall installations, make lyrical reference to the intertwinement of time and place as a part of human experiences. As a fiber artist, Sandra Abrams playfully uses stitchery and textile techniques in her two and three-dimensional art pieces to enhance the flat surface of a digital image or to create hybridizations of organic forms. Nicola Lamb’s minimalist paintings are visually lush surfaces that hold the history and visible trace of forms captured in the rhythm of the paint as it is applied, moved and manipulated. Nancy Mooslin’s paintings, as well as her video work, involve a visual interpretation of music. By using layers of lyrical color, she translates the harmonic sounds of complex forms of music into a visually rich experience for the viewer.
