ICI Associate, Christel Dillbohner is being featured in a new exhibition, “ICE FLOE JOURNALS” at 1821 Gallery & Studios in Fresno from September 4 – October 18, 2014.
“In the last five years, she has been creating a large series of contemplative, abstract, process paintings circling around imaginative, clearly Nordic-looking, landscapes. In these works she is exploring – with the melting glaciers in mind – the balance of process transformation, geological reference and emotional drama. For this group of works she has developed a new painting method with pigments dissolved and strained into an emulsion of water, oil and wax. The liquefied pigments are poured onto the canvases, wooden panels or sheets of absorbent paper. […] She allows the material to oscillate between the principles for randomness and control until she has found what she is looking for.”
Art Hop opening reception, Thursday, September 4th, 5-8pm
Artist Presentation and Discussion, Friday, September 5th, 7pm.
