June's Final Friday Art Walk in Paonia happens on June 28 from 5 to 8 p.m.
At Elsewhere Studios see the work of Felipe Compuzano, Alicia Toldi and Sarah Coates.
At the Blue Sage Gallery see the duo showcase, "Everything That Is," featuring the works of Taylor Boylston, and Elsewhere resident artist Carolyn Porras.
Felipe Campuzano Montoya is an architect and photographer from Medillin, Columbia. "Mutation's landscape" is a final stage of a five-year project to follow and show Colombian landscapes and open his perspective to other landscapes (U.S.A.). He is interested in the relationship between human construction and nature's construction. He found the common features and the aesthetic similarities they both have.
Sarah Coates is a mixed media artist, writer and MFA candidate at Cranbrook Academy of Art near Detroit. She is using her time at Elsewhere to rant about the shortcomings of contemporary art jewelry, experiment with motorized movement and electricity for an upcoming show in Detroit, draw and begin a longer work of fiction.
Alicia Toldi is a Brooklyn-based artist originally from the San Francisco Bay Area. She uses a variety of materials and techniques, but at Elsewhere is focusing on drawing and 35mm film photography. Alicia's work is an investigation of time and memory, and how humans make sense of these intangible concepts by associating them with concrete objects.
Carolyn Porras creates fictional universes by piecing together fabricated shapes. These imagined spaces are inspired by theories of the infinite, proposed structures of the universe and the total isolation these paradoxes evoke. Unbound by the conformity of logic, Carolyn is able to create environments that are infinite and untethered to this reality.
Taylor Boylston's work uses bold sacred geometric images and patterns. She creates unique mandalas depicting the infinite and deeply connected universal life form. Fascinated with the relationship between feminine (curved) and masculine (straight) energy, Taylor merges the two lines in every piece, portraying the global need for equal amounts of both vibrations.blog comments powered by Disqus
