Art Adventure Gallery in Madras presents Triple Exposure celebrating the art of Rebecca Hendrickson, Coralee Popp and Jeanie Smith during July. Opening reception on Friday, July 6, 5:30-7:30pm. During the evening, the three artists will talk about their work and answer questions.
Triple Exposure is a compelling look at art from three different artists who have know each other since 1991 and are each ten years apart in age.
Hendrickson layers, paints, scrapes, pierces and scratches her surfaces, ending with a sense of floating. She has exhibited in galleries, museums, and has participated in public art projects. Hendrickson has taught college-level art, directed a gallery and worked as a textile designer in the industrial Textile industry. Currently, she resides in the desert of Southern California.
Popp draws and paints live models and returns to her studio to contemplate what corresponding elements will accompany the direct observation.
Smith creates without intent, using photos of previous work, nature and other experiences printed on canvas, fabric or paper with paint and scissors as tools and intuition as her guide.
“At present, my work intends to investigate a sense of floating in space, a disconnect, which so easily occurs in contemporary Western life which is overrun with fast, massive information,” says Smith. “The surfaces are layered with architecture which is built up and sometimes stripped back down. They are scraped and bruised, scratched and muscled, pierced and smudged.”
