Moderated by Power Boothe. Power Boothe has exhibited his paintings for over four decades. His work is represented in numerous public and private collections and he teaches at the Hartford Art School.
The East Gallery features mixed media works by Scott Richter, in his exhibition “A Melody of Things Unrelated” groups works from multiple series emphasizing the artist’s layered and thoughtful approach to process. The Sculptural works within this show are actually considered to be paintings in the artist’s mind. They are pieces are about painting – the process and its material, yet avoiding the final product and its related aesthetics. Each piece comments on the repetitive nature of the painting process – building mountains of paint showing the layers and history of the process. Richter’s two dimensional work also speaks to the methodology of process by layering, burying and revealing surfaces.
Sydney Morris’ solo exhibition “Nova”, will exhibit her alternative process photographs in the TDP Gallery. The alternative processed photos are printed on cloth and presented in embroidery hoops – as a metaphor for the stars in the night sky. Morris notes that these pieces are unique in the fact that they are ever changing. Much like a nova, their colors may change, become brighter, or slowly fade over time. The forms created in these pieces mirror celestial events through photographic alchemy to produce fluid, saturated pieces infused with meaning.
