Maria PHILLIPS – the relationship between the NATURAL & the MAN MADE

Classé dans : Gal. Velvet da Vinci (US),Maria PHILLIPS (US),organics,recup' / recycled,USA — bijoucontemporain @ 17:21

« My obsession with time and the aging process has been a recurring theme in my work for the past decade. This preocupation has fueled my interest in non-traditional processes and materials in order to further examine the relationship between the natural and the man made. I incorporate non-precious metals with natural and found objects as well as elements based on industrial and anatomical forms. Manipulation and subversion of these materials results in forms saturated with tension. Repetition of elements produces mass, an outcome that can be both seductive and chaotic. Fabrication and electroforming permit the cultivation of new forms, while various surface enhancements influence the concepts of the work. Continual investigation of new processes and mediums are what compel, stimulate and challenge my creative process. » (exhibition at Velvet da Vinci Gallery)

EXPO ‘Ten artists-Ten objects-2010′ – LOUPE Gallery Loupe, Montclair (New Jersey, USA) – 22 Juill.-19 Aout 2010

EXPO 'Ten artists-Ten objects-2010' - LOUPE Gallery Loupe, Montclair (New Jersey, USA) - 22 Juill.-19 Aout 2010 dans Colleen HEINEMAN (US) 37898_416590009322_260495754322_4283481_7212966_n

10-10-2010  is an exhibition that examines the creative process of  ten individuals. Each contributor has created ten discrete pieces in a body of work. The pieces are finished objects, though depending on the materials this allows for a wide range of interpretations on completion.

The idea for this exhibition developed out of a project often assigned at The State University of New York – New Paltz where the objective is for students to have a limited amount of time to create a concise, abridged body of work. The project becomes an exercise in stream of consciousness thinking, decision-making, material exploration and consideration, sketching, and model-making. The results are raw but thoughtful. By implementing limited parameters, the work reflects a fresh approach to a familiar medium. 10-10-2010 brings together ten graduates  from The State University of New York – New Paltz to examine their own making styles. The collection of participants represents the spectrum of working styles- from object makers to installation artists to jewelers. Each of these makers has continued their practice in object or jewelry making, and this exhibit gives them an opportunity to take a step back from their regular practice to participate in a process oriented, idea generating exercise.
