Shifting with context and light, pieces of art interact with time and place, adding a fourth dimension when seen, while others journey deep into the elements of nature.

Christine Knowlton’s reflective art brings the viewer contextually into each piece: shifting with context and light, the art interacts with time and place, adding a fourth dimension. The palette includes mirror shards, auto glass fragments, mica, iridescent textured paint, and intricately collaged images.This exhibit includes a cathartic fishing net installation, and colorful mixed media collages and canvases. Ten mixed media collages evoke characteristics of the Zen Elements of Nature (Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water), the essences that comprise our universe and all of life and flow between. The photography series brings a mirror-shard canvas in places outside to capture the intersection of reflective art and seasonal moments.ChristineKnowltonArt.comInstagram: christine.knowlton.1

CREATE by Philippe Safire

February 1 – April 27, 2022

Among the earliest records of art making are hand prints outlined in color on cavern walls created by people thirty thousand years ago. We might consider these early cave paintings the “new media art” of prehistoric times. Inspired by these pieces, Philippe Safire designed a digital version in the form of a custom application displayed on a multi-touch screen. If the viewer puts their hand on the screen, an animation of colored pixels encircles the fingers and palm. Once the hand is removed, the outline continues sparkling before disappearing. Safire invites the public to collaborate in generating unique artwork. As part of the series, the exhibition also includes a set of lenticular prints, projected animation, an internet installation and social media component. Conceived as a participatory event, CREATE features hand prints created by participants — to enjoy within and beyond the gallery space. The exhibition explores the creative process and the ephemeral quality of the digital medium.
