Don Porcella is best known for his signature style of weaving pipe cleaners to create sculptural objects and installations, which were featured recently in the holiday windows of Hermes in New York. This present exhibition features his sculptural work and also many of his encaustic paintings selected from his personal collection.
The work displayed by Patricia Carr Morgan is an extension of her exhibition currently on display at the Tucson Museum of Art. The piece on offer at the gallery combines photographs shot on expired film during her visits to Antarctica and the glaciers of Greenland. Carr Morgan continues the degradation of the already distorted images with the addition of hand applied oil medium, dry carbon pigment, and particles of coal. Like her exhibition at the TMA, the piece incorporates a neon light element that speaks to a deeper meaning of the work.
Ron Kovatch, though known primarily as a ceramics artist for a large part of his career, creates engaging two-dimensional images through his unconventional use of graphite and colored pencil. The group of images on display in this exhibition float off the surface of the wall engaging the viewer to interact individually with each object in its own asymmetrical environment, as well as considering their relationships and connections as a collective whole.
