Emotion/Imagine Exhibit at Galatea Fine Art, SOWA

Emotion/Imagine

Opening Reception — Friday, February 5, 2010, 6-8pm

 Meet the Artists — Sunday, February 21, 2-4pm

At Galatea Fine Art, 460B Harrison Avenue, Boston, MA 02118

Kathleen Hendrick of Southboro, MA, and Becky Kisabeth Gibbs of Wayland, MA, will be exhibiting their two-person show at Galatea Fine Art, Boston’s newest contemporary cooperative art gallery in the SOWA district February 4 to February 28, 2010. 

Kathleen Hendrick’s complex, mixed media compositions explore the emotions originating from deep within the human psyche. She combines intricate drawings and abstracted forms to create dense and colorful images. She builds her collages with materials ranging from the exotic, such as fibrous Japanese rice paper, to common household resources. Layers are pressed with texture, printed, removed, painted, scratched away and sanded. These processes mirror how our own lives may be built up or worn away by the society in which we live. Hendrick’s recent work references the inner layers of the human psyche: what lies hidden, what is revealed, and the range of emotions found therein.

Becky Kisabeth Gibbs’ biomorphic abstract paintings suggest a vista of duality: imaginary or real? The works disrupt the experience of scale and space so as to create ambiguity: between large and small, microscopic or interstellar. Shapes within this abstract thought space can explode or implode. The first step of her process is at once controlled and uncertain: dropping India ink onto wet paper, washing it off, and repeating the process until the composition emerges. Gibbs’ paintings reveal her interest in scientific imagery, including the scanning electron microscope, photography from space, and naturally occurring patterns such as fractals. The imagery is referenced for its abstract qualities, and is compelling to the artist because it is not readily evident to the invisible eye without the use of technology, yet is underlying all of nature and its beauty.
