Opening Reception for Confluence | Denise Driscoll + Sara Fine-Wilson
Fountain Street Gallery
Dec. 3, 2021, 05:00 pm
Beginning November 27, Fountain Street Gallery will exhibit “Confluence” featuring the work of Denise Driscoll and Sara Fine-Wilson. Driscoll’s paintings and Fine-Wilson’s sculptures balance meticulous craft with purposeful play to explore the precarious complexity of life and relationship. Both artists use processes of accumulation and assembly that enable complex forms to emerge from simple parts. Working with clay, Fine-Wilson combines chunks, slabs and wheel-thrown elements to build monochromatic gestural sculptures. Driscoll layers brightly colored overlapping ovals and the gaps between them to build ambiguous spaces. In both cases, the confluence of these many parts creates work that invites extended gazing.
