Jean Herman Exhibition Statement
In “Versions in Color” Herman focuses on how the world of color is always front and center in her interpretations of the world. Herman always asks the question, “What story does this art tell”? This new work is her version of a color-filled world interpreted through her unique mixed media fiber work.
Herman always follows her artistic vision; Elizabeth Gilbert, in her book describing the creative life, calls this creative urge “Big Magic”. Herman believes her creative urge will always speak through her art. Color is a tool she uses to interpret her world through art. Herman believes art is always personal and shares an emotion, or an internal response to the world around her with her viewer. Although travel influences a lot of Herman’s work, the people she sees on the street and Colorado’s gorgeous colors will also lead her into her own creative interpretation.
G Cody Day Exhibition Statement
“Versions" is a collection of new paintings by G Cody Day.
The work explores the implications of the idea of versions. Day’s graphic abstract paintings expand on his previous abstract landscape work with a focus on contrast, ranging from gently subtle to high vibration.
Versions implies alternates, and encourages the viewer to contemplate the version they are currently in. By appreciating and being present in the current version, the spectrum of variation between the infinity of possible versions can be appreciated. This version defines and enables the possibility of other versions, and the more detailed and rich this version becomes the richer the variety for opportunity it produces, simply thorough contrast.
The paintings are made by combining various points through masking and layering. The recollected elements are the result of exactly this particular wave of influences and decisions, illustrating and creating the texture of this version.
Day invites you to experience the new paintings, and examine the details that populate and define your version.
