Melinda Stickney-Gibson's solo show d r a w i n g s opens with a reception for the artist on Sat. September 24th, 5-8pm at Cross Contemporary Art, Saugerties, NY. d r a w i n g s is a survey of works on paper and wire wall sculptures by the painter Melinda Stickney-Gibson. This is the first exhibition dedicated to Stickney-Gibson’s drawings and wire wall sculpture and it offers an insight into the process of the artist’s abstract paintings. Each study is a sensitive meditation on the texture of memory as her lines and forms alternate between awareness and a dream-like state through flickering shadows of consciousness. As a visual poet, Ms. Stickney-Gibson incorporates written words as suggestive notations, while her lines and forms echo the trembling edges of nature. The artist’s drawings and wall pieces reflect her long examination of layered luminosity and direct painting that expresses space and being defined by memory and consciousness. Art critic Eleanor Heartney observes "We as viewers respond to these works because we recognize in them the ever shifting, often chaotic, and richly layered nature of the reality we all share.”
Melinda Stickney-Gibson's solo show d r a w i n g s opens Sat. September 24th and continues through Sun. October 23rd, 2016.
