Featured Description (from the owner)
Flinn Gallery exhibit opens “Material World” with online video reception - its first show of the season. Runs September 10 through October 28, 2020
The show features two painters – Leeah Joo of Middlebury, CT and Stephanie Serpick of Brooklyn, NY – and one fiber artist, Jennifer Davies of Branford, CT.
All three artists bring the nuances and richness of materials, such as drapery, sheets, and paper to life through color, composition, and texture.
Behind the physical appearance of folds, layers, and creases, there are hidden narratives based on what is visible, what is concealed, and what is imagined.
Jennifer Davies handmade paper, collage, and woven pieces have a strong physical presence and conjure images from nature such as spider webs, the moon, and hand-crafted items such as books, quilts, and veils.
Leeah Joo’s paintings celebrate the beauty and rich traditions associated with Korean fabrics and include cross-cultural references that imbue the images with added meaning. In her intimate paintings of unmade beds and crumpled sheets, Stephanie Serpick responds to personal loss and recent political events with artwork that speaks to grief, isolation, and healing.
Katy Finnell and Nancy Heller, both of Greenwich, are the curators of the exhibit, which will open on Sept 10 with an online video reception and run until October 28.
All of the 44 works of art are for sale except for three pieces. Individual artist videos will be posted during the show to enable people to meet the artists in their studios and gain insights into their creative process.
The opening and artist videos will be posted on the Flinn Gallery website. To receive email notifications about these videos and other show highlights, you can subscribe to the Flinn Gallery email list at https://flinngallery.com/contact/.
