New Work – Sally Ketcham
Windows – Ray Schutte
First Thursday Artwalk: June 6th, 6-8 p.m.
Sally Ketcham continues to explore the interplay between abstraction and representation. Within this series of multimedia paintings, Ketcham alludes to the fragile balance of ecosystems, with references to distressed coral reefs, mutant aquatic life forms, and suburban pods.
Spatial ambiguities, surfaces and edges built up with paint, mediums, string, paper and other debris reference the constant intrusion of chemical seepage into our urban ecosystems.
In Windows, Ray Schutte explores the iterative use of a photograph in a series of multi impression ultra violet (UV) inkjet prints. Portraying variations, Schutte’s photograph of lichen on stone reveals the reiteration and interplay of the image with itself. Windows is a serial image that investigates reoccurring identical elements on 4×6 and 6×6 foot canvases using a commercial UV inkjet flat bed printer to build color and space.
