HYBRID: Group exhibition in Woodstock 10/21- 11/27, 2011
Curated by Carol March
Hybrid, a group exhibition curated by Carol March, will be on view at the Kleinert/James Center, 36 Tinker Street, Woodstock from October 21 through November 27, 2011. Hybrid will open with a public reception on Saturday, October 22, 4-6 pm.
Hybrid is an exhibition of work produced by the interaction of two traditions, abstraction and figuration. Mostly non-objective, these images are, nevertheless, suggestive. They hover on the verge of recognition like the twilight period between consciousness and sleep. There are also mixes of clearly defined figuration and pure geometry. Included in this exhibition are: Squeak Carnwath, Don Christiansen, Michael Mazur, Patricia Spergel, Eleanor White, Rachael Wren, and Ion Zupcu.
Patricia Spergel’s paintings are what inspired this exhibition. They are private events recorded in paint, leaving a coded visual imprint. She says her work is “a diaristic language informed by my environment and experiences.” The paintings are composed of fluid abstract forms, often derived from the human body or landscape. Organic shapes crowd together, float or overlap, creating eccentric compositions filled with color and light. These elements create unexpected works, whose intense presence throws the viewer momentarily off guard, opening her/him to a deep unspoken truth. Spergel is also a master monoprint maker. She shows at Kenise Barnes Fine Art in Larchmont, NY.
Selected for inclusion in New American Paintings 2011
