A WALK THROUGH THE GALLERY
Exhibit curator, Sigrid Trumpy, met with fellow artists Neil Harpe and Cassandra Kabler to explore this show together. We hope you’ll enjoy their walk through the gallery.
“This offers a sense of landscape and is reminiscent of the Russian Expressionist Alexej von Jawlensky, who was a member of the Der Blanc Reiter Group.”
ANOTHER FRAME OF REFERENCE
Each of us brings our own perspective as we engage with the works in this show. Included here are additional references we hope enrich and expand your experience.
“118” by Elliott Zuckerman
A twist of the wrist can move a tree.
To mark the order of things that are
already there, or change what’s almost there,
Discerning hand shows moral sympathy.
(from “Poems and Observations” by Elliott Zuckerman)
Excerpts from Letters by Paul Cézanne
“Treat nature by means of the cylinder, the sphere, the cone, everything brought into proper perspective so that each side of an object or a plane is directed towards a central point. Lines parallel to the horizon give breadth . . . Lines perpendicular to this horizon give depth. Now, we men experience nature more in terms of depth than surface, whence the need to introduce into our vibrations of light, represented by the reds and yellows, a sufficient quantity of blue tones, to give a sense of atmosphere.”
-Paul Cézanne, 1904
