This coming First Friday The Vault, ASU’s downtown Phoenix campus art gallery, will feature A Closer Look, curated by Annie Waters
Only the third exhibit in this fairly new space, it will feature photography, paintings, and drawings by seven artists. Some of them are familiar names, others new. Include are: Rebecca Bergman, Candice Eisenfeld, Ann Griffin, Linda Ingraham, Carolyn Lavender, Marilyn Szabo, and Kate Timmerman.
Carolyn Lavender will exhibit her carefully rendered, 24″ x 54″, graphite on panel, titled The Woods. It promises to absorbs your full attention.
Kate Timmerman will present a 25″ x 19″ encaustic and mixed media on panel, titled Wishes to Remain Anonymous. Timmerman’s very recognizable use of materials creates a richly textured surface and color. This is the first of a series of paper bag portraits that reflect the influence of Outsider Art, on the artist.
Rebecca Bergman’s images appear whimsical and bright. Bergman says she appreciates the profound order of the natural world; it’s purity of form and purpose from the micro to the macro. For her the painting process transforms into a meditative, contemplation rather than a representation.
Candice Eisenfeld’s painting below, is a wooden panel titled Tantra/Path. Below is one work from a series of paintings where she explores various aspects of pornography.
And Ann Griffin includes landscape, this one is from a series titled Sequoia, where she reflects on an area where she grew up. She’s the mother of four, and is returning to painting.
About the name of the space…the building that houses the gallery was once the First National Bank of Arizona. The fortress-like structure invites its visitors into its tight quarters which includes original vault doors and entryways.
