FORMS AND STRUCTURES

Dace Lucia Kidd, Sarah Katz, Amy C. Storey, and Joy Walker


Opening Reception: Wednesday, April 3, 6 - 8 pm

Gallery Hours: Wed - Sat 1 - 7 pm and Sun 1 - 5 pm

Gallery Onetwentyeight is pleased to announce the group exhibition, Forms and Structurescurated by Marina Goldena from Riga, Latvia. The show represents four women artists with different backgrounds, working with different materials and in different styles and yet there is a common thread to each of their works. There is also a sincerity to each artist's story; splashes of emotions with Amy C. Storey, freedom of movement and energy with Joy Walker, sensitivity and kindness in Sarah Katz's ceramic sculpture and fragility and shyness of Dace Lucia Kidd paper sculpture. The show marries different forms, structures, color, and the dichotomy of bright strong colors of big work against small fragile and sensitive ceramic and paper sculpture.

Dace Lucia Kidd uses her relationship to art history, notably modernism, as a filter through which she perceives new compositions. Using a three dimensional surface layered with complex two dimensional images she establishes unique relationships between artist, viewer and object. She wants to communicate a conviction that reminds us, in the age of visual trickery, direct experience still holds surprises and offers fresh insights.
