Sun Zoom Spark
WPA is proud to present Sun Zoom Spark, featuring work by Julie Becker, Katy Crowe, Pamela Jorden, Alice Könitz, Virginia Holt, and Terri Phillips.
Inspired by movement, magnetism, and the poetic energy of the Captain Beefheart song Sun Zoom Spark; this exhibition is a a diverse group of paintings, sculptures, and drawings that generate momentum amongst and beyond themselves.
Does it start at the bottom or does it start at the top?
Organized by Pamela Jorden, the exhibition is inspired by the characteristics of kaleidoscopic vision, the way it dissolves an orientating register, how it alters images with shifting perspective and reflection. Ultimately these qualities demonstrate that visual experience includes objects and the spaces between, with colors and impressions, changing, reconfiguring, affected by circumstance and time.
The work included is all possessed of a tactility and a material immediacy. A beautifully idiosyncratic portrait, a rocket ship, a geometric sculpture, a grouping of mirror drawings, and two abstract paintings, in concert these artworks are a complicated picture, a series of relationships moving and interlocking in dynamic arrangement.
