Artists at Large
Harry Clewans, Elizabeth Dante and Stephanie Morgan
September 5 - September 23, 2006
Opening Reception: Friday September 8, 7-11pm
Harry Clewans woodblock print collage, Elizabeth Dante cast sculpture & Stephanie Morgan photo emulsion on cement.
Known for his intricate, ecstatic, grotesque art, Harry Clewans mixed media work is both idiosyncratic and visually alluring. Source material rendered as drawn objects are cut into woodblock prints before being merged into each final piece.
Elizabeth Dante's figurative sculptures betray an interesting array of influences. Elements of African and primitive art are sen along side the diagonality and lines found in Deco period work. Gestures and poses are often outsizes and kinetic, emphasizing the relationship of the subject to its actions.
Stephanie Morgan's work addresses "false fronts and false landscapes," capturing a flicker of images in cement.
