SCAPE is pleased to announce a group exhibition titled "Material Girls" featuring 4 artists that find inspiration in non-traditional materials, methods, and create new meanings from mundane materials.
Artists, Kim Abeles, Julie Easton, Katy Stone, and Carrie Sunday will be featured in the exhibition.
Kim Abeles’ Smog work gives images to the discoloring effect of the air. She uses the reaction that acid air has on transparent or opaque materials. The subject of these images led the viewer to question the relationship of the image to the material and how the environment is really effected. Julie Easton works with unexpected materials like cigarette papers, coffee cup protectors, and cup cake liners. Her work is about process, and the exploration of the object. Easton layers or manipulates her selected material slightly different in each composition, allowing the viewer to discover, reflect, and search. Katy Stone and Carrie Sunday both use flat materials to create depth and form to their work. Using archival Duralar plastic sheets Katy Stone plays with the translucence of the material layering the work which becomes reminiscent of organic growth. Carrie Sunday manipulates paint chips into large pattern based abstractions.
