Inhabiting the Square
April 30 - May 30 

We posed the question: how to inhabit the square?
 As we began to explore this topic subsequent questions arose: What challenges arise in the square? How do we initiate the work? From what direction does one enter the square?
 We explored these questions through a visual conversation, which sparked a complimentary verbal conversation.  Initially we confronted the square separately.  After sharing our initial images, we began a methodical conversation.  Where by Ree responded to Liz’s image then Liz responded to that response and so on.  This resulted in an exploration of the square that was continually guided by each artist’s respective statements in color and shape.
 It is our hope that the viewer gains, through our visual and verbal conversation a greater understanding of abstract art. We have included a definition of Abstraction to start you on your way.
 Webster’s definition of Abstract (adjective):
 1. dealing with or expressing a quality or idea <the book deals with abstract matters such as honesty and integrity on the job as well as practical subjects such as asking for a raise>
 2. using elements of form (as color, line, or texture) with little or no attempt at creating a realistic picture <Cubism is a style of abstract art in which natural forms are broken up into geometric shapes>
Abstract art can be a painting or sculpture (including assemblage) that does not depict a person, place or thing in the natural world — even in an extremely distorted or exaggerated way. Therefore, the subject of the work is based on what you see: color, shapes, brushstrokes, size, scale and, in some cases, the process.

DANIELA EDSTROM - SACRED GEOMETRY

NHAA Member, Daniela Edstrom will have an exhibition, titled Sacred Geometry, at the Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce during the months of May and June. 


Daniela Edstrom’s work centers upon a play of geometric forms fused with realistic representations of natural flora. 

It intends to comment on the universal, archetypal qualities of the landscape’s minutiae (foliage, flowers, fruits, etc.) and the basic building blocks of life. All things may be reduced to essential, universal shapes: the square, circle, triangle, etc. 

All things within existence are based on a mathematical harmony; it is sufficient to think of the elegant equilibrium of an atom, its perfect, continuous form, the circle, with its electrons, to realize that geometry is the basis of living matter’s construction - its very foundation. Thus outlines of elements within Daniela’s pieces blur, meld. Colors simultaneously merge, recede and come forth. All speaks of a graceful architecture within natural objects - one man, through the centuries via idealized art and architecture, has attempted to emulate. 

Ultimately, as an artist, Daniela is taken by the magnificent complexity and beauty of creation - its apparent simplicity so refined , it speaks eloquently of the metaphysical, of a spiritual core to both the large and the small which compose being.

April 2 - 25, NH Art Association member Ann Tolson will have a solo exhibition on the Gerry Frazier Wall of the Small Works Gallery. Ann will be exhibiting a group of recently completed paintings that are all inspired by an older style she rediscovered after having put them in her rack nineteen years ago. Ann says, &#8220;It turned out that it was very good for me - I had fun doing them - it made my old brain work on ideas for the next paintings. Everything had to come out of my head. To link them up with the original paintings I kept them all in the same colours.&#8221; An Opening Reception will be held Friday, April 4th from 5 to 8&#160;pm.
