This event has ended.

Curator D. Dominick Lombardi’s premise for the exhibit Free Form Five is that while the five artists’ selections of subject matter, process, media and aesthetic, are very different from each other – they all make art that reveals a new and compelling depth of perception. Fixed ideas and familiar notions are eclipsed by free form innovation, as these artists leave behind just enough information to ground their content in the known.

Sandra Gottlieb’s fantastical photographs of monumental cloud formations possess surprising color and weight, much different than what we might expect at sunset. Gottlieb takes these photographs from a unique perspective, once familiar forms become more tactile and intense, a parallel view that has just the right mix of dizzying detail and frightening proximity.

Sharon Kagan finds and expresses the complexities of the universe in a most benign place. Like a physicist explaining matter and energy, or a mystic relaying their thoughts on the forces of life and fortune, Kagan constructs her images to reveal an interconnectedness that is as much about the mysteries and movements of life sustaining elements as it on the subject of form and representation.

Bobbie Moline-Kramer most intuitively turns human emotions into an array of abstracted vignettes. Beginning with previously painted realistic portraits that bear expressive facial features, she over-paints them with an intricate vocabulary of spontaneous shapes and communicative colors, thus obliterating most of the detail. Moline-Kramer’s improvisations react to and expand upon the portraits taking us to a variety of non-linear leads and ascending levels.

Like a waking dream, Rebeca Calderón Pittman paintings capture enough “reality” of an interior or exterior space providing a common experience or memory, that both develops and eradicates description. As in the meanderings of daily life, we receive a sustainable amount of information to keep us in the moment as we pass through space and time to a calming illumination.

Susan Sommer sees the changing seasons and accompanying movements of animals as a constant reminder that nature is the ultimate bringer of stability and change. Instead of making accurate representations, Sommer uses cousin shapes, complementary hues and cohesive compositions, to achieve an elusive holistic harmony between form and color, and man and nature.
