Featuring paintings by Keren Kroul and sculptures by Jeffrey Haddorff
February 13 – March 27, 2014
Keren Kroul’s watercolor paintings portray small, meticulous marks. The imagery develops from a single line or dash of color, which then expands, multiplies, or dissolves. These small pieces, developed in series, are explorations in repetition, line, and layering.
Jeffrey Haddorff creates sculptures from ceramic and metal that are lively variations on traditional forms. The balance created or disrupted by positive and negative space, and juxtaposition of pattern and/or color, lends new interest to familiar objects.
Kroul and Haddorff each explore, through their own sensibilities and media, narratives that intersect and complement one another. Conversations develop between Kroul’s intricate strokes and Haddorff’s organic shapes, inviting new dialogue with each encounter.
ARTIST RECEPTION: FEB 13, 6 – 8 PM
