“Intersection: Four Voices in Abstraction” at The Gallery at Berkshire Hathaway Fox & Roach has been extended through Saturday, Jan. 28, when there will be a closing reception from 2 to 4 p.m.
Featuring the work of Hunterdon Art Museum members Terri Fraser, Jim Irvine, Florence Moonan, and Catherine Suttle, the show at 253 Nassau St., Princeton, N.J., has been very well received since its opening in December.
“With this group of four very distinct voices, I wanted to not only explore the more tangible intersection of their vocabulary through materials and technique, but also the broader context of how we all commune at the crossroads of our collective, creative unconscious as audience, critic, curator and creator,” said Curator David Lawson.
Fraser loves the interrelationship between nature and humanity and is forever looking for new ways to reveal their influences on each other. Irvine’s goal is to create art that engages the viewer, by exploring tension between opposing forces of the natural and abstract, the emotional and representational – as well as that between layers of paint, color, white space and mark-making.
The driving force behind Moonan’s work is a narrative drawn from her personal history, the natural world, travel, and above all, music. The unique qualities of Venetian plaster allow her to produce surfaces that reveal fragmented patterns and rich textures.
Suttle draws upon Abstract Expressionist painters like Milton Avery, with his compositions of simple shapes, awkwardness, and harmonious combinations, and Richard Diebenkorn, who influences the way her paintings are layered, revealing an underlying structure in untethered space.
The gallery is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekends.
