Join us for the closing reception of “Raw and Fragile” at Alma Art & Interiors on Friday, September 1 from 5 pm to 8 pm. This will be a special opportunity to hear from artists Amanda Gentry and Nathaniel Patschke as they discuss their creative processes and inspirations. The exhibition has been a wonderful exploration of the relationship between art and nature, and we look forward to ending it with a final celebration. We hope to see you there!
Gentry approaches her process-driven work methodically and meticulously to achieve a meditative state that allows her to shed all but the moment at hand. Imbued with stillness and quietude, Gentry’s paintings elicit a soothing response from the viewer. As a neuro-diverse artist, she pares down visual stimuli, intent on revealing what is essential to achieve breviloquence. Gentry’s work reflects her inner world, and through her telluric palette sourced from the earth itself, she invites the viewer into a renewed connection with the elemental.
Patschke‘s ceramic vessels take traditional forms of pottery that have evolved over centuries and transform them by means of unconventional design, exaggerated scale, and experimental surface treatment, without losing sight of their functional roots. His vessels are evocative of subterranean roots, with organic forms that seek transcendence through their connection with the earth. Both Patschke and Gentry’s work create a dialogue that invites the viewer into a renewed connection with the elemental.
Don’t miss the chance to experience “Raw and Fragile” at Alma Art & Interiors. Amanda Gentry and Nathaniel Patschke invite you to transcend the noise of our over-stimulated world and connect with the elemental.
