Poetry in Process
Selby Fleetwood Gallery presents "Poetry in Process", the visual poetry of Christina Chalmers, Rodney Hatfield, Julie Schumer, and Nicholas Wilton and highlights how these artists are inspired by the possibility of materials and a work’s surface. Their paintings, drawings, and sculptures display a kind of intuitive exploration in the form and function of both traditional and non-traditional media. A lyrical quality is present in all of their works due to the spontaneous nature of their creative processes as well as the metaphorical potential of the materials they select. These artists are engaged in a visual dialogue with their media and the process of making.
