Translucent Threads features works that segue between the conceptual and the concrete. Unconfined by definitions, these works break the norms and invite viewers to roam in a field where freespirited-ness, joined by dexterousness, creating a body of works that speak truths about life. Each works shown creates a visual pause, allowing the audience to time to contemplate their environment. Incorporating a wide array of media and subject matter, Translucent Threads possesses a broad vision. Malone provides a show that demonstrates a dexterity, sensibility, and awareness of art history far more informed than the “outsider” or “visionary” schools of art.
Exploiting the “public space” of the gallery curator Basak Malone choreographs a show that blends modes of design, architecture, sculpture, installation, and craft, with each artist projecting an entirely different perspective.
The subtle sophistication and bold experimentation of these works attests to each of the artist’s willingness to break boundaries and seek out new approaches. Drawing on a dynamic range of inspirations and influences, the works in Translucent Threads exude both sensitivity and grace.
