GRETL BAUER: White
CHRISTA TOOLE: Echo

JANUARY 7 - 31, 2015
RECEPTION: January 8, 6-8 PM


GRETL BAUER: White


VARANASI (DETAIL), 2014 ACRYLIC AND CRUMPLED NEWSPRINT ON CANVAS

Leonardo Da Vinci described white as the “first” color – the color “without which no color can be seen.” Indeed, for an artist, white is far from an absence of color but rather an affirmation. I return to white again and again. Long associated with purity, tranquility, safety and innocence, white is also the color of mourning, of sacredness, of things inviolate. Because it contains both light and profoundness, white enables fresh beginnings as well as evokes a sense of wholeness. For me, the power of white lies in the mysterious energy which it bears, an energy which conveys clarity and spaciousness and therefore possibility.

CHRISTA TOOLE: Echo

Mixed media and oil


Oil, thread, wax on wood, 12" x 12" each

Christa Toole's work explores the subjects of biology, science, energy and transformation. Using paint, thread, wax and other materials, her work transforms these materials into a fluid image. In this exhibit she continues to explore themes of space, energy and sound with pattern, line, and form. Each piece is a set of two that reflect and interact with the other.
