In the Main Gallery:
GOOD AND PLENTY
Curated by Cynthia Connolly

Artists: Darcie Book // Amy Hughes Braden // Estee Fox // Matt Hollis // Stefanie Williams

Most of us grew up with color televisions, computer monitors, and mobile phones whose screens emanate a myriad of colors seemingly not replicable in the natural world. Using them daily, how much do these devices influence us? Utilizing distinctive methods, the artists of GOOD AND PLENTY may be attempting to recreate the luminosity and hue from these glowing beacons. Matt Hollis constructs new worlds using manufactured materials, drawing viewers close by employing the clean vivid color of familiar objects and textures disguised through accumulation. Stephanie Williams’ installation features unnaturally bright colors in thread and fabric, at first obscuring the depiction of forcemeat and human body parts. Darcie Book uses dried acrylic house paint to create swirled, candy-like three-dimensional environments. Estee Fox and Amy Hughes Braden both work in heavily saturated colors, either with acrylic paint or ink on canvass or paper, beckoning viewers to stand close and discover every slash of color and it’s meaning.
