Ferne Jacobs, Eva Hild, Jacob Ouillette
Nancy Margolis Gallery is pleased to announce Ferne Jacobs’ fourth solo exhibition at the gallery. Jacobs has had an extraordinary career and long relationship with the gallery. An innovator in the fiber arts field, Jacobs is known for her unique three dimensional sculptures constructed with a simple traditional weaving technique, waxed linen thread wrapped around a cord.
Eva Hild, known for her white and dark ethereal flowing ceramic forms, has ventured to another material and process. Hild’s new sculpture is made of aluminum in editions of three and may be installed outdoors.
Jacob Ouillette paints patterns of brilliant to muted hues creating canvases of dazzling color and form. The colors, freely applied are not pre-planned, but chosen intuitively. In spite of the tight grid formation the paintings have a spontaneity, effectively parlaying them into vibrating motion, color and form.
