December 2016 – Amy Barker-Wilson: Views along the Way
November 30 – December 31, 2016
Foundry Gallery will be closed December 24 and 25 and January 1. Happy holidays!
Opening reception: Saturday, December 3, 5-8pm
Amy Barker-Wilson’s new abstract works create the sense of a person on a journey: the rhythm of feet moving; of stopping to observe sensations, color and views along the way. Her luminous lights and rhythmic brushstrokes give the paintings an open, experimental feel – each a small, complete universe seen at an unrepeatable moment.
“I try to see the extraordinary in these everyday views,” she says. “There is a drama going on, a hidden life inside that’s made accessible by seeing more clearly. We can be privy to much that otherwise goes unobserved. We feel our way along like a traveler on a narrow path, recording in paint – looking not at our idea of what should be there but seeing, feeling, and touching. A different awareness opens – wild, energetic, intimate and delicate views, seen inside and out.”
