ABSTRACTIONS IN BLACK AND WHITE in Gallery 175
Gallery 175 will be showing artwork by X Bonnie Woods, Louise Laplante, and William Clark from October 29 to December 29 in its gallery in downtown Pawtucket, RI. Contained within a range of black and white and all the tones between, the work of these artists incorporates intriguing visual relationships of forms, marks, patterns, and materials in three distinctly different ways.
X Bonnie Woods, a resident of Boston and Germany, works with folded paper to create three-dimensional surfaces on which she explores the luscious richness and fluidity of black sumi ink marks, washes, and reticulations. The folded shapes of her paintings become irregular and risky, and cannot be contained by frames.
Based in Easthampton, MA, Louise Laplante creates collages from vintage print materials over which she superimposes motifs and symbols. The bold graphic images contrast with the small-scale of the pattern of the text, but connect through theme as the aged and contemporary come merge.
Providence photographer, William Clark, captures abstract marks with light. He approaches the process as an artist might with a pencil, but while the pencil of light remains still, Clark moves the camera to record glowing, intricate patterns in deep, mysterious darkness.
The public is invited to enjoy the work at Gallery 175, located at 175 Main Street in downtown Pawtucket in the Blackstone Valley Visitor Center. The gallery is open daily; the hours are 10 am to 4 pm.
