08 kate MacDowell - surface and surface

Hand carved porcelain sculptures from American Artist Kate MacDowell.  Her work responds our relationship with the natural world, to environmental changes, pollution, mythology, Art History and figures of speech.

“I chose porcelain for its luminous and ghostly qualities as well as its strength and ability to show fine texture.  It highlights both the impermanence and fragility of natural forms in a dying ecosystem, while paradoxically, being a material that can last for thousands of years and is historically associated with high status and value.”

Kate MacDowell exhibited her work at the SCOPE Miami, separate group exhibits with Patrajdas Contemporary and Mindy Solomon Gallery in December 2011.

07 Gabhann Dunne - Surface and SurfacePaintings form award winning Irish Artist Gabhann Dunne.

“the serenely coloured worlds of Gabhann Dunne have a visionary and elegiac quality as an Irish sensibility coalesces both Irish and American mythologies. Geographic features, figures and wolves emerge from hazy ground, and the artist demonstrates the haunting, lyrical qualities that can be drawn from paint. In The Fold, the spaces of painting emerge in a most satisfying exhibition.”
