Works of Terry Welker

May 23 – July 25, 2014

Terry Welker’s mobiles originate from his passion for architecture, poetic space and meaningful places. Welker explains that his work comes from “my memory of a shape, rather than a direct adaptation.” It is this non-literal translation of his subject that provides the simple elegance and strength in his compositions. The mobiles push the limits of space and form, allowing those observing the motion to become unconsciously engaged in the enjoyable act of simply watching the near misses and soft collisions that occur. Welker uses curves, arcs, and lines to accomplish this.

Jennifer Omaitz: Solid Movement

May 23 – July 25, 2014

In her artist statement, Jenniffer Omaitz says “Solid Movement is an investigation into gesture and its ability to encapsulate time and psyche, to fuse the internal and external, and to record conceptual state changes in solidified form.” Omaitz uses the fluid nature of paint to document the shift from spontaneous marks to meditated passages in her work. She is in pursuit of the conceptual and emotional changes in state, between harmony and disharmony. As the paint moves from liquid to solid, captured and recorded by the hand of the artist, it creates a new, fresh meanings and experiences for the viewer.
