The subtle work of working
March 12, 2015 § Leave a comment
There is a subtlety to working that comes out, only after the work has been done. Our two current shows deliver on the idea of practicing and daily work. Kate Vita set a goal of a painting a day, and the work involved in the task shows itself in the paintings in the gallery. They are delightful works engaging the light we have here. Kate is looking at the segments on the world we see. They are isolated parts, but they are the quick glimpses of light, color, and form that are a daily delight.
Nancy Hathaway has been casting and working with paper a while. These are fascinating. They have a delicate coloring. The paper itself frames the soft yellow of the core. But the core also holds threads of red and yellows. Nancy writes about them as drawings. They have a nice drawing quality to them. The surfaces are a fascinating texture.
