What happens over time?
Individual artworks are created, larger themes are explored, abandoned and sometimes revisited, while ideas begun in one medium (such as painting) may shift over time to find expression in sculpture or printmaking. Artists, of course, also change over time. We are influenced by our own artistic experiments and also by the work of those around us.
Sometimes the artist’s dialogue with time is deliberate: a bowl of pears is painted on successive days as it rots. Other times it aggregates less consciously, as when an artist returns to capture a beloved landscape again and again over the course of years, or returns to an earlier work to create additional iterations in different media. Whether it is an earlier artwork or a memory of a lived moment, sometimes images ripen in our imagination, allowing us to create (and recreate) in a new fashion.
In this exhibit, we will each be showing artwork, and artwork in series. We hope to invite you into our processes over time, and illuminate how our work has evolved as a dialogue between individual works, with each other and with time.
