AUGUST 4 – SEPTEMBER 3, 2016
The closure of wounds; the mountainous seams of the Earth; the junction of four artists.
Suture is an exhibit of new works by artists from both coasts of the US, separated by a continental mountain range, yet joined together by a thread of similarity. The exhibit centers around a shared aesthetic appreciation for color and line, and the contrasting application of these elements from distinct artistic viewpoints. The lusciously saturated, abstracted visions of Yellena James and Simon Tran meet the emotional figurative narratives of Mandy Cao and Jensine Eckwall. Suture evokes feelings without words and stories told without speaking.
