Three Unique Visions in Metal: Jane Dennis, Charlotte Mansur and Leslie Stuart Matthews
Curated by The Oiseaux Sisters (Susan Andrews and Carolyn Fellman)
January 13 – February 25, 2017
Charlotte Mansur: “I work as if the small tin pieces were brush strokes. I start with an image, and through time spent alone in my studio, the idea behind the image makes itself clear. I liken it to a whisper that gradually turns into a shout, in my mind.”
Leslie Stuart Matthews: “I quilt cans. Soda cans, beer cans. I cut the metal with scissors and I sew the colors and patterns together with my sewing machine. You wouldn’t believe what you can sew with an old machine. I love that sewing is like construction”.
Jane Dennis: “As a printmaker, I had inked metal plates, but flashing, bendable, easy to cut and full of nail holes, filled a gap in my mixed-media vocabulary. In my mixed-media pieces, I like finding connections within a piece, between concepts, forms and materials.”
