July 7 – 30, 2022
In her body of work titled “Reconstructed”, artist Geralyn Inokuchi explores painted paper collage in creating her non-objective abstracts. These pieces are a metaphor for life events and her personal growth over recent years. Inspired by the energetic work of David Tress, Geralyn began exploring compositions in her abstract collages that extended outside of the standard dimensions of the surface. Papers of various textures and thicknesses are painted and torn into smaller sections, then reassembled to emphasize a balanced asymmetric and dynamic work. Torn edges and uneven shapes are as much a part of the composition as are the expressive lines that flow from section to section.
Geralyn’s inner landscape is reflected because of life events that have taken what she was and turned her into something new, much like the process used in creating these works. The pieces in this show can be seen as her journey through the last few years indicating a progression where resilience and healing are apparent. This personal landscape may show all of the imperfections, but it is also one which reflects something richer with more depth. In essence: reconstructed.
Reconstructed will be on display at Gallery 110 from July 7 – 30. The gallery is open to the public from 12PM to 5PM on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays and by appointment. Or stop by during the Pioneer Square First Thursday Art Walk on July 7 from 4-8PM.
