Art & Alchemy
"Art & Alchemy"
Each of the artist-alchemists in this exhibition curated by Barbara Lubliner uses found materials to transform waste into wonder.
Carol Goebel transforms rusted metal tools into beautiful compositions that flicker with life and make you think you have come upon a flock of amazing flying creatures.
Linda Stillman chooses found materials, remnants of daily life – coffee filters, tea bags, blossoms and bark from her garden and paint shards from her painting practice and transforms them into witty and elegant compositions.
Elyse Taylor creates a charming and moving narrative patchwork of life experiences in her ongoing project, "Growing," made up of 16" square panels, using a large variety of recycled and found materials along with paint and collage.
Dan Walker transforms plastic parts by aggregating them according to color. His explosive assemblages and sculptures are dazzling in their intricacy and nuanced color relationships.
