Join us for the exhibit of new work by Gwen Laine. The inspiration for the form these works took was a persistent vision of a rock being dropped in water and the subsequent movement upward and outward. “Knowing that even the slightest action carries on indefinitely led me to create works that suggest both the minute and the immense in constant movement,” Laine writes.
Gwen Laine’s art is about the way we make sense of the world, or perhaps it’s better to say the ways we make sense of the world. Her photographs and installations are composed of ordinary objects and forms recontextualized or made abstract that prompt and defy our impulse to find the simplest perceptual solution. Working with both the record and the manipulation of light, Laine accentuates physical properties as recognized or understood by the senses. Yet the indefinition as well as the instability of the light allows for the free play of effects. At one extreme, the familiar is readily at hand; at the other, the image or environment dissolves into a lavish display of visual stimuli. –Stephanie Grilli, Ph.D., Art Historian
