Material Matters

Fifth annual exhibition focusing on the interaction of artists with their materials

Reception for the Artists: Saturday March 10, 5:30 – 7:30 pm


Material Matters, 2018 is the fifth of our yearly exhibitions spotlighting the interaction of artists with their materials and how the materials themselves are an essential part of the content of the work.

We are excited to bring in works by Israeli artists Neil Nenner and Avihai Mizrahi in corten steel and paper, fresh from their exhibition On the Edge at the MUZA Eretz Israel Museum in Tel –Aviv.

In fiber, we were delighted to discover the work of Diane Tate DallasKidd, whose work Mammoth created with knotted linen thread and acrylic paint moved us with its grace and drama.

French artist, Guy Mayenobe’s mechanized kinetic works inpired by Jean Tinguely are amazing examples of form moving through space.

Master sculptor Jane Rosen, loving nothing more than drawing on form, shape-shifts one material to appear like another, getting as close as she can to the true nature of her subject matter.

Andrew Hayes’ Plane Study (pictured) is presented in nine small 3 x 3 inch steel squares like a musical “Themes and Variations” composition where each work explores different topographies – convex, concave, ridged and grooved, his fabrication in steel a study in perfection.

Whether wood, paper, book pages, clay, paint, graphite, glass, steel or stone, every year we discover how the focused interchange with materials allows artists to arrive at new expressions, increasing their visual vocabulary and thus their communication with the world.
