May 25, 2019 - October 31, 2019
Opening on May 25th, 2019 3-6 pm
Continuing with the theme of landscapes TurnPark Art Space presents an exhibit of two contemporary artists who approach the topic with very different sensibilities. In the process of creating their artwork, both artists push beyond confines of the surface, their paintings and drawings engage the space, blurring the edges between color, shadow, line, plane.
Liane Nouri’s paintings have rigid physical edges, each is the series of identical standard boxes. However, the subject of the paintings is the elusive continuity of color-scape inspired by vistas of Hudson Valley.
In her 3D work, Jaanika Peerna draws on the power of markings to accumulatively evoke the forms of a complex natural phenomenon: the flow of water, melting of ice, drifting of fog, breaking of waves. The mylar artwork, freed from the two-dimensional surface erases the distinctions between drawing, sculpture, line, and shadow.
