That’s How The Light Gets In: Reflections On Transitions Recent Work By Barbara Lee Smith
May 4, 2017 through June 24, 2017
Barbara Lee Smith is an award-winning mixed media artist, writer, educator, and curator who creates large-scale landscapes and abstract works using a three-step process of painting, collage, and machine stitching. Personal, political; even a bit philosophical, these works from the past few years express the changes that have given Smith pause to reflect on the light that slips in. In addition to numerous international solo exhibitions, Smith’s work has been collected by the Renwick Gallery, Smithsonian Institution, the Racine Art Museum, the Indianapolis Art Museum, other various U.S. collections and in Europe, Africa, Asia, and South America. She is the author of Celebrating the Stitch: Contemporary Embroidery of North America.
May 13, 2017 through June 16, 2017
Branch Gallery, Inglewood (Los Angeles), California, is pleased to announce their upcoming exhibition, “Elemental,” featuring local fiber artist Deborah Weir. This exhibition will include work from Weir’s series about the four basic elements: earth, fire, wind and water. Many of the pieces explore abstract ways of depicting these elements. Weir directly responds to the Earth’s increasing temperatures, violent wind storms, rising seas, and farm land erosion through varied processes and materials. Inspired by climate change and the brutal effects it has on Earth, many of Weir’s pieces have been dyed and over-dyed to create depth in her imagery. Each piece contains numerous layers, constructed using collage, paper lamination, applique, felting, paint and other media. Finer markings are hand-stitched to add further detail in Weir’s imagery. Repurposed household plastics, bits of metal, and fabric integrate , revealing Weir’s perspective on the terror, excitement and beauty of Earth.
