Each brings his/her own unique style and vision to the diverse group that makes up the Phoenix Gallery. These artists, all carefully chosen for membership by Phoenix artist peers, work in all media and create art that encompasses and reflects wide cultural and ethnic interests.

SEPTEMBER 9-OCTOBER 3, 2015
LISA HOCK: Indigo Night
RECEPTION: 9/10/15. 6-8 PM.
WINN REA: Topo-Shift 2
Topo Shift: MacIntyre Range 2015 Mixed Media on Wood.
16 1/2” h x 14 ½” w x 3 ½”d
The perceptual shift I experience while moving through the woods is explored in this series of three-dimensional topographic contour reliefs with painted natural forms found in cast shadows. The contours of the land that surround me exist in my mind on a macro scale, while light and shadow weave me into the micro-environment. The viewer’s perception oscillates as well: with a slight shift of the head the three-dimensional form of the topography is flattened by foliage patterns, then pops forward again as the mind makes sense of spatial data.
WINN REA’s process-based art addresses environmental themes in sculpture, video installation, and works on paper. She has exhibited internationally from the Netherlands to South Korea, and nationally from A.I.R. Gallery, New York, to The Urban Institute for Contemporary Art, Grand Rapids, Michigan. Her public art has been featured in the Governor’s Island Figment Art Festival and the Newburgh Sculpture Project. Her work has been reviewed in The New York Times, and received grants from The New York Foundation for the Arts, The Puffin Foundation, and the Vermont Studio Art Center. Her water bottles installation was featured in, The Value of Water, at the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine, New York, along with works by William Kentridge, Kiki Smith, and Bill Viola. Winn Rea is Associate Professor of Art at Long Island University Post. She is a member of the Phoenix Gallery, New York, with studios on Long Island and in the Adirondacks.

LISA HOCK: Indigo Night
Indigo Night, 2014. Mixed media. 34 x 28 in.
Night falls with a sense of calm, a time when I stop to reflect on the day, my life and how
grateful I am of God's gift of nature. The expansive sky with its personalities, moods,
and the ever changing light creates a dramatic portrait of life. The power of color defines
the spiritual imagery of nature and my reaction to the shadows, reflections and drama. I
am responding to the power of the Indigo Nights.
Lisa Hock is President and Director of Huntington Fine Arts, Huntington, New York.
Please join us on September 10th, from 6-8 to meet Ms. Hock.
