OPEN SPACE - THE FINITE FRONTIER

  • Curtis Arts and Humanities Center (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The American West, once the uncharted, undiscovered territory is not without its limitations. This picturesque open landscape is now shared by man’s footprint of over-development, industrial pollution and destructive mining practices. On the contrary, the ever-growing city brings us modern day conveniences, cutting-edge technology, infrastructure and anthropological opportunities. This exhibition explores the wild frontier juxtaposed with the urban habitat, and how we as humans both resist and rely on these finite environments.

PAST/PRESENT - Gallery MAR / Park City

PAST / PRESENT features work by two Gallery Mar represented artists, Sarah Winkler and Pamela Murphy. With resplendently textured layers, Pamela Murphy and Sarah Winkler give the surface of their work its own individualized history, all the while giving elegant insight into a time in our collective past. Their paintings carry with them a feeling of quiet significance, as if each work holds within its layers a treasured account of the history of the world.

A selection of new work will be displayed at

RH Modern - Denver

Sarah Winkler's highly stylized works are the result of a distinctive artistic practice deeply influenced by geological processes and elements. Drawn from memories of places she has visited, her fantastical and abstract landscapes possess a dynamism and energy that captures the exhilaration and presence of mind inspired by the beauty of nature. The materials she uses are themselves mixed with natural minerals such as marble, mica and iron oxide, cementing the narrative connection of the works to their subject.

Winkler's paintings are the final product of an extensive method that begins with sketches and photographs of landscapes she has visited on her travels. These visuals are translated into collages, using paper the artist herself has fashioned from an experimental process of her design. The collages are then further developed into paintings, which are created by applying acrylic to large, wooden panels. Each panel is treated and sanded to achieve a hard sheen, which highlights the multiplicity of textures, layers and depths that are characteristic of the artist's aesthetic.

Winkler is fascinated by the environmental factors that shape the natural world, and seeks to imitate their destructive and constructive qualities in her own artistic technique. She wields solvents, paints, carving implements and sanding tools to mimic the kinetic processes of erosion and deposition, as well as the physical forces of wind, water and ice. According to Winkler, "by applying paint in this way, I am creating a history of gestures and actions that form into naturalistic abstracted landscapes with painted geological textures."

FORMATIONS: the constructed landscape
New work by Sarah Winkler
March 3 - April 2, 2016

 
Sarah Winkler's work lies "at the boundaries of realism and abstraction, modernism and minimalism." In this exhibition of new work by the British-born artist, we are drawn into the rich and varied landscapes she constructs through her layered approach, the imagery inspired by mountainous Colorado surroundings and Western Deserts but ultimately formed by her signature aesthetic. Stay tuned for more information about this upcoming show at helikongallery.com.
