Upstairs Gallery: Stacy Elko
There is a sense and way of being that is unnoticed until one goes to another place. At this other place, one begins to understand difference and change. Remaining, wether by choice or circumstance, the tidal force of a place is a wave that engulfs and changes one in ways never thought possible. Stacy Elko.s multi-media exhibition is a visual manifestation of the emotional and mental changes she under went returning to the united Stated after spending many years living in Morocco. Using a variety of printmaking techniques, ceramics, video installation, Stacy experiments with different images to express a what she refers to as Displacement, touching life here through a membrane.
2nd FL Hall Gallery: Season James
These paintings represent my love for color, industry and visual depth. My desire to paint derives from the way color impacts our lives. Mixing and blurring, dripping and dragging can deeply influence any element of color.
The resulting depths create textures that can be dramatic and emotional. I use acrylic paints because I love their plasticity, and canvas because of its organic thickness and flexibility. The paint is mostly applied with a knife, then rollers and coarse house paint brushes are used to blend the colors when necessary. There are sharp and soft aspects to each painting that represent industrial landscapes and natural occurances as they both interrupt and inspire the way I see the world.
