Planes and Patterns features the paintings of Andrea Goldsmith, Marcie Paper, Jaclyn Mednicov, Brandon Whightsel and Tina Sarquiz and an installation by Crystal Gregory.
There is something soothing about Plains and Patterns. Perhaps it is the unpretentiousness of the work. There is little energy spent on representation.The interaction with the work might be purely sensual. But Marcie’s work deals with short term memory, brain disorders and the recording and experiencing of every single moment. Jaclyn is dealing with the fragility of the urban environment in competition with natural forces. Tina’s work is inspired by the infinite and Pascal. Andrea’s work is inspired by very real places and experiences in Italy and Barcelona. It is quite enjoyable to walk through this exhibition and bathe in the patterns and colors. But there is a depth to this work that demands that the viewer look further, to engage each of the works and begin a dialogue with the artists. To share their experience.
