Tria Gallery presents intermix, featuring mixed media works by artists Colleen Flanigan, Carla Goldberg, Jill Ricci & Casey Vogt.
The artists in intermix each create art using multiple and varied materials and techniques. Flanigan's interactive "puzzle" is composed of 5 x 5" wooden blocks, each of which is engraved with pen and ink drawings. The viewer can move the blocks around to create changing visual stories. Goldberg takes fun and nostalgic items such as Gumby and Pez candies, and places them in contemporary setting of swirling resin. Ricci creates elaborate collages using metals, beads, fabrics, text and other materials from her worldwide travels. The result is an old-world feel with contemporary edge. Vogt's psychedelic and visually stirring mixed media collages are painstakingly created, ornate fields of micro-patterns - some using vivid colors and other start black and white - to mesmerizing effect.
