Contrasting distinctive lines with subtle, atmospheric colors, Marilyn Joyce forms collages using a variety of papers, ink, gouache, thread, and graphite. The visual maps, approximately 8 inches by 10 inches, are abstract recordings of her observations associated with the land during daily walks.
The crisp edges and strident colors of geometric shapes emerge from, and in turn are subsumed into, hazy washes in Roberta Aylward's abstract compositions. Inspired by natural phenomena, Aylward's 11 inch by 15 inch paintings on paper explore the subtlety of the in-between, spaces both familiar and entirely new.
