ABOUT:

Le Terroir & Le Ciel/The Land & The Sky, featuring works by Lisa Di Stefano & George Marks looks at elements of the land and sky through the lens of evolving landscapes and bird nests.

In the works of George Marks, landscapes are rendered in a loose abstract style. Referred to by Marks as his "chalkboard series", he seeks to create a landscape changing or wiping away over time similar to a child erasing a drawing on a chalkboard - the shadows of what once was remains. In contrast to Marks's direct reference to the terrain, Lisa Di Stefano focuses on abstract patterns, reinterpretations of natural phenomenon created by bowerbirds, a unique species of flight known for their self-made, ornate and colorful "bowers" or "nests". Scientists often study bowerbirds as one of nature's prime examples of the perception & creation of beauty.

Le Terroir & Le Ciel will be presented at the Claire Elizabeth Gallery from Mar. 28th - May 27th. An opening reception will be held on Sat. Apr. 6th from 6-9pm and all are invited to attend.
