Un-themed and Varied
The Winter show at the Gallery at 100 Market Street
Reception Feb 1 2013, 5-7 PM at 100 Market Street, Portsmouth NH
To see works like this in my online shop, look here.
This season’s exhibit at 100 Market street will feature most of the completed paintings and drawings in my Tree of Life series on the first two floors. Trees seem to be thematic. The featured artist on the upper floors, Cori Caputo, is also exhibiting a series of trees in sepia and a range of full color works. It should be interesting to see the same subject and different viewpoints side by side. In addition, my friend and fellow AAGNE artist Kate Higley will be exhibiting several works. And the reception snacks are top notch!
Several of the drawings and paintings in my “Tree of life” series juxtapose complex organic branching tree structures with DNA and biochemical motifs. This combination takes the “Tree of Life” symbol out of a purely spiritual or purely phylogenetic context. The change in context underscores the densely networked and interconnected properties of life on Earth and the importance of Ecological order in our modern understanding of the world. The idea of an Ecology and of trees as symbols of Ecological order and harbingers of Ecological change and disarray is further explored in other works that do not explicitly refer to Biochemistry. Taken together, these pieces tell a rich and compelling visual story. I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to present such a full range of these pieces in one location. I believe that seeing them together will really give a voice to the series of work and will encourage a deeper and richer interaction with the ideas in each drawing and painting.
