DESCRIPTION

"In the Space Between" Two person show: Charlotte Cain painting & Michael Cain sculpture

Michael Peter Cain's consciousness-based artistic endeavors result in technically and intellectually brilliant art that also delights. Michael co-founded Pulsa, the experimental art collective based out of Yale University in the late 1960s. He continues to innovate and has received numerous grants, including NEA and Fulbright Fellowships. These works contrast the lyrical arabesque of ornament with the abstract logic of contemporary forms. Michael collaborates with Indian and Nepalese metal-working artisans to juxtapose American abstract minimal sculpture with images appropriated from Indo-Islamic iconography and ornament.

Charlotte Cain's decades of meditation and art-making as a sacred process of the manifestation of silence infuse her artwork. In addition to an NEA Artist grant, she has traveled, lived, and created art in India and Nepal as a Fulbright Senior Research Fellow. Artist Agnes Martin collected her friend Charlotte Cain's paintings. These gouache and mineral pigment paintings reference Indian and Islamic miniature painting, fabric art traditions, South Asian folk and tribal iconography, and contemporary minimalist painting. Her poetic, iconic gems bring beauty, silence, and joy.
