Lila Barber is working on a series of three figure paintings that express the conditions of the human psyche and societal conditioning. Using geometry and color theory along with screen-printing, collage, she creates a narrative without linguistic explanation.
Jackie Bouchard’s photographic installation pushes the boundaries of traditional photography through experimentation with movement and presentation. She does this through black and white images of natural organic forms, printed and projected on different materials.
In Kylie Bourque’s landscape photographs there is an unexpected man-made element. Pieces of painted furniture disrupt the natural scene and change the mood and narrative of the setting.
Heebe-Tee-Tse Lee works in the tradition of his culture combined with modern materials to design a Native American Bandolier bag. The bag showcases North East Algonquin floral beadwork, derived from the original techniques of quillwork, using cloth, glass beads, shells, and 14k gold seed beads.
Kimberly Manjuck uses traditional darkroom photography and double exposures to create ghostly images of people in abandoned places. They become a metaphor for the interior of the mind.
Nora Nuzzolo incorporates her passion for printmaking within her constructed collages. In her recent work she explores creating a 3D space with 2D elements using relief printing, intaglio and monotype.
Carol Tack has painted a large-scale aerial view of a koi pond on fabric. Fish, stones, plants, and a waterfall give the viewer the sense of looking into the depths of the pond.
Pablo Youngs brings elements of Pop Art, Street Art and Latin American Art into his colorful paintings. He uses a combination of stencils, spray paint, acrylic, and house paint to create different layers of imagery and color.
The exhibition will take place at Hera Gallery, 10 High Street in Wakefield, RI. The public is invited to attend the Renderings ‘17 on Saturday, May 13th from 6:00 to 8:00pm.
These programs are presented with partial support from The Rhode Island State Council on the Arts and The Friends of Hera. Hera Gallery is free and open to the public and is accessible to persons with disabilities. Parking is available.
