Winston Contemporary Art is proud to announce Gymnopedie new sculptures by Tara Conley. Conley’s work explores new ground for the artist, examining line, space, lyricisms, language, mortality, and the body as it relates to movement. Conley stated “Recently line drawings have become three dimensional, establishing form without mass in a lyrical way. In exploring the power and subtlety of line by bending steel and stainless round bar, I’ve managed to create volume without weight, like roping wind.”
Gymnopedie runs January 3, 2019 through February 3, 2019.
About The Artist: Originally from Bath, New York, and a graduate of Rochester Institute of Technology’s School for American Crafts in Metalsmithing and Jewelry, Tara Conley lives and works in Houston, Texas. Working in fiber, metal and fiberglass, mixing materials and processes in surprising ways, Conley has an extraordinary knack for creating organic, yet original, shapes, adding a delightful sense of humor and wonder to the mix. Works hug the ground, hang from the ceiling and extend from the wall. Conley has shown her work from Seattle to Massachusetts, Houston to New York including her first museum show at the Houston Museum of African American Culture in 2015 entitled “My Life as a Doll.” In 2011 she and artist Joe Barrington completed the largest public art commission from Texas Tech University for the Rawls College of Business Administration. The Houston Audubon Society has commissioned Conley to create a unique work in recognition of Flo Hannah’s commitment to conservation and contributions to Houston Audubon. There will be a dedication at the Edith L. Moore Sanctuary on, January 25th, 2019 at 10am.
