On October 10, through November 8, 2015, FiveMyles Gallery will present its newest exhibit, Trace and Matter, by artists Ruth Hardinger and Kara Rooney
While utilizing a plethora of techniques and materials, both choose to express their ideas through the exploration of three dimensional, or sculptural idioms, with drawing, photography, digital collage or rock wool being an integral part of the work. There is an open ended dialogue of technologies and materials enacted, of past and present experience; there are traces of the multiple processes and substances used to create individual pieces.
While some of these might be obscured by the ongoing conceptual development of individual works, the physical energy exerted in the shaping of the matter selected to embody these primary ideas exerts an often palpable presence. Interest in quotidian materials, up to date technologies, linguistics, past cultures, and environmental concerns, all inform the work, while demanding a reevaluation of our understanding of current artistic processes.
