BREAKING SURFACE Group Exhibition Featuring Work By: Pauline Chernichaw, Holger Eckstein, Aldara Ortega, Jonathan Godinez, Cheryl Maeder, Matthew David Wachsman and Andrea Puccetti.
August 13th through September 2nd, 2015 – Opening Reception: Thursday August 13th 6-8 PM
The show exhibited the work of both emerging and established artists exploring two sides of a single threshold: the border of water. Water’s skin, like our own, is deceptively permeable, reflects light, is flexing thin sheaths shielding depths from view. What lies on the other side, past the surface? This show is the search we made for our secret selves by breaking surface. A depth of feeling is embedded in each of the photographic and moving images of this group art exhibit. Each offers the viewer a stillness through which to search the complex curves and reflections of water’s surface, to weigh the tension between asymmetrical elements against the overall balance these elements yield within the frame. Within this context, images range from the fanciful to the abstract.
