Gina Werfel and Jessica Snow in Shapeshifting Superheavies
Group Show Opening
Gina Werfel will be a part of the group show opening called Shapeshifting Superheavies, curated by Jessica Snow (Davis Alum ‘87). It will be held on March 11, Saturday at the NIAD Art Center.
The shifting nature of pigments from wet to dry, and the gradual building up and changing nature of the surface suggests a gradual harnessing of the elements into a completed painting. The process of its making is at once transitory and rooted in material, in flux yet solid. The artists Jessica Snow has chosen for ‘Superheavy’ create paintings that feel at once solid in materiality and yet have the freedom and lightness of an ephemeral element, never quite graspable. The qualities of such paintings push on the outer limits of the mind, in the same way that the superheavy elements push on the outer limits of the periodic table.
Included in the exhibition are works by Leo Bersamina, Lisa Blevens, Eddie Braught, Francesca Pastine, Peter F. Gross, Peter Harris, Demi Petroupolos, Shantae Robinson, Gina Werfel, Prajakti Jayavant, Anya Spielman, and Christian Vassell. A catalog, with essay by Scott Hewicker, will accompany the exhibition. This is the first show Jessica Snow has organized at NIAD Art Center.
