“Subjective Elements” features artists conjoined by inspiration derived from human and natural forms. Coudari employs Mannerist manipulations of the human body in sculpture, Azita Ganji uses a geometrical system she calls Geotrilogy to re-imagine outdoor spaces, and Irene Sfakianos focuses on precise moments of natural spectacle to form her body of work.
“A Prism of One” shows us what results when an artist falls through the looking glass and reinvents his or her environment completely. Ruben Talberg explores the use of the signifier, floating words across his abstract canvases as in a dream. Nicole Woodford obliterates the background and reinterprets her subject as a composition of lines and fills. And Rochelle Fogel defies the artist's preconception of a work, creating without premeditating and achieving fascinating enclosed forms.
The final interpretation of the subject occurs when we, as viewers, see the work through our own filters. Training one respectful eye on the intent of the artists, we use the other to reinvent once more the image before us in a way that is subjective and deeply personal. The result, gainfully achieved by every work in this exhibition, is a series of complexities that is virtually boundless.
