This little gem (4 x 6 inches) will be included in Kalee Appleton’s first solo exhibition in the gallery titled “Glancing Backward”. Many of the works in the show will feature custom frames that Appleton makes special for each piece. The photographic work becomes an object. Join us to celebrate next Saturday February 24th 6-8pm! @kaleeappleton #glancingbackward #springmeadow #4x6inches
FINAL WEEK to see “Finding the Universe in Oaxaca”!! Visit Wed-Sat 12-5pm. Scroll to see individual works. #garygoldberg #findingtheuniverseinoaxaca #feltedwool #tapestries #oaxaca #mexico
The exhibition features Goldberg’s large-scale hand felted tapestries made in partnership with artisans in Oaxaca, Mexico. The subject of the tapestries comes from his photographs of Oaxacan walls and facades taken in close proximity to resemble landscapes and Mexican mythologies.
While shiny photographs of Mexican cobblestone streets lined with brightly stuccoed exteriors may be commonplace, Goldberg’s photography steps closer to explore how the Colonial Mexican architecture transforms into landscapes and mythologies when shot in close range. His work is then transformed into photorealistic tapestries using a felting process at Taller Afelpado in San Agustin Etla, Oaxaca, Mexico.
These textiles explore many threads but one central concept; is landscape a construct?
In his work Goldberg makes references to the landscape by imposing a false horizon line and creating a pictorial space that refers to a land sky relationship. The works seek to explore the idea of abstracted landscapes by bifurcating a composition and utilizing dark and light values.
It is Goldberg’s hope that you find the universe in Oaxaca by what he has seen and created.
It’s pretty amazing to see the internet blowing up today over the portraits unveiled. Congratulations Amy Sherald!!! I’m proud to say I know you.⚡️😍 @asherald @nationalportraitgallery #amysherald #michelleobama #firstlady #portrait #hoffbergerschoolofpainting
