Thanks to our wonderful stable of artisans for making this happen and to our loyal customers that have supported our mission to make one of a kind locally sourced products available for the growth of our community.
Encounter features new individual and collaborative works from both Hickman and Soo. Introduced by the OUTSIDE IN the artists soon discovered a shared sensibility and an appreciation of what each was trying to achieve in their own work. This mutual understanding resulted in an unexpected conjoining of their materials-clay and animal membrane. Reception 10/11/2015; 2-5PM, (artist walk through at 3pm) with closing talk on Sunday 11/15/2015; 3pm.
Artist Statements for Encounter:
Pat Hickman: My individual body of work grew out of an open studio residency at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, ME. The gift of time and focus there allowed me to confront the recent death of my 98 year old mother and visually reflect on this loss. Haystack encourages artists to move between studios and media new to us. In the Fab Lab, I used the laser cutter and in the graphic studio, explored embossing and printmaking with woodblocks carved using a digitized program, based on images of my mother’s last hand writing. New tools, new ways of working for me with welcome surprises. This new work spoke to me of my years of living in Hawaii, with proximity to Japan and aesthetic influences which crossed the Pacific.

David Soo: I manipulate clay atypically. With all my work, I try to be respectful of the voice of the clay, examining the ways it behaves when either thrown or manipulated. Does it stretch, sag or tear? I am interested in texture; rough, smooth or sharp and sensitive to how a sculpture touches its surface, as well as, its lines and negative space or the interaction with the air around it. I paint the contours and surfaces of my sculptures with flame, accumulated ash and salt in the molten moving atmosphere of an ancient Japanese Anagama wood fired kiln. I find the natural ash glaze creates an Abstract Expressionist finish that corresponds to and accentuates my sculpture. (Website)
Pat Hickman is Professor Emerita of the Art Department, University of Hawaii, where she taught for sixteen years. Her studio is now at the Garnerville Arts and Industrial Center, NY and she lives nearby on the Lower Hudson River. Hickman’s work is in major collections, including the Renwick Gallery, Smithsonian Institution, the Oakland Museum, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, the Honolulu Academy of Arts, and the Hawaii State Art Museum, among others. In Hawaii, Hickman’s commission, Nets of Makali‘i-Nets of the Pleiades, stands as monumental entrance gates for the Maui Arts and Cultural Center. Hickman twice received NEA Individual Artist’s Grants. In 2005, she was elected a Fellow of the American Craft Council, and she served as President of the Textile Society of America (2008-2010). Hickman curated two traveling exhibits: Innerskins/Outerskins: Gut and Fishskin (1987) and Baskets: Redefining Volume and Meaning (1993).
David Soo began working in clay in 1971 at age 9, and was introduced to Anagama wood firing in 1989. Education in a Summerhill-style school produced an inherent non-conformity in the way he views the creative process. This perspective, paired with influences from his Asian and European heritage, has developed David’s work into a synthesis of Abstract Expressionist Art and pottery. The co-builder of his Anagama kiln, David has had the opportunity to study with respected artists such as Peter Voulkos, James Makins, Lester Polakov, and Peter Leventhal. He has exhibited in museums and received a New Jersey Council for the Arts Fellowship for outstanding excellence in ceramic art.
Ralph Derven is a sculptor and contractor who collects and documents wood, preserving character and exalting flaw in a process of prolonged observation and problem solving notable for intricate joinery, bright colors, and unusual curves. RCD Woodworking
Yoav Liberman, an architect, educator, and acclaimed dumpster diver, transmogrifies the abandoned and obsolete, inspired by the hidden potential in objects redundant. Unique custom-fabricated hardwares provide integrity, focal interest and practical disassembly. Yoav Liberman Design
Richard Rose, an architect with a fascination in Steam Era cast iron and industrial metals, reinvents and repurposes the discarded into utilitarian retro-futuristic assemblages attempting to retain markings and patina in a style some refer to as “Steampunk”.
Delah Brucelli –Architectural Digest Home Design Show 2015 Best in Art
“Brucelli’s art explores the intersection between fine art and new media. Whether creating allegorical stories, brush-free abstracts, or mosaics of poured color, she constantly seeks to combine paint, photography, and new media. By using different techniques, Brucelli aims to create a multi-dimensional space within her art that elevates
the viewer to contemplate and transcend the physical.”
Opening Reception: Sunday 5/17/2015; 2-5PM.
Optimistic, bright, and upbeat; these images are drawn from the artist’s life observing and interacting while moving around & thru NYC & suburban NY community.
Cohen paints because he has to. It is how he fits into the world. For the past 40 years or so, Fred Cohen worked as an interior painter, working in many different types of interior painting disciplines. Around 1975, Cohen was taught a system of design by “a lady from Hungary” changing the way he viewed the world inside and around himself. Originally from Europe, this system breaks down the natural world into seven basic shapes, enabling the artist to see and reassemble underling structures according to the artists’ particular vision and abilities. It was suggested by her that he use this system in painting, which immediately seemed natural to the artist and thoroughly became ingrained in his aesthetic, which always comes back to exploring design and color, in a never-ending evolution.

RECENT COLLAGE AND SCULPTURE by Cristina Biaggi
Recently I’ve become involved with abstract collage, which I find liberating and satisfying. My method is the following: I create a series of works on paper in a purely expressionistic manner, not thinking about results but using my intuition and involvement with the movements of my hands and eyes. Then I tear or cut up these pieces and compose a completely new work, using interesting emotive sections of the old pieces to create a brand new composition. Sometimes I have a vision of the work I intend to create (the result seldom turns out like my initial vision); sometimes I don’t, which makes it exciting and challenging. The final work is never what I anticipated and that is in itself liberating.
My portraits are created from another place in my creative imagination. I attempt to establish a non-verbal communication with my subject to create not just a likeness but an inspired work.
AN ENCOUNTER WITH DEAD LEAVES By Gianni Biaggi de Blasys
Paintings are open-ended suggestions, I believe, not definitions: let the beholder enrich the work by his own interpretations, as stated by E.H. Gombrich. “The eye must not rest onto the painting right away, but float a bit, before settling on the whole picture.” Thus a form of ambiguity is to me a prerequisite, whether it be achieved through the illusion of informal art, by abstraction and reversible images, or by surrealism where objects are purposely out of context. Even figurative art is an illusion, according to Gombrich, since it can never literally duplicate reality.
I intend to express in a few of my paintings the contrast between live and dead vegetation, or more pointedly, the baroque beauty and power of dead leaves which I collect: twisted, shriveled and curled up things. As I was observing them a few years ago, they appeared riddled with holes opening up to the sky like bits of hope dotting an overcast and closed atmosphere. This idea inspired me and I yearned to portray something beyond ordinary existence – a liberating image. So, a majority of my works intend to show this aspect, often in a surrealistic vein; others go off the road, portraying a Corrida, a waterfall, even the portrait of a French model, a Tondo intended to contrast the other rectangular frames. My main subjects remain, however, landscapes and still life. I particularly care for the painting “a ficus strangler vine strangles a ficus tree”, for you can observe several images at the same time.
My paintings are mostly acrylic on canvas, sometimes mixed with gouache, or combining photo collages, or still originating directly from a photo, like the painting “Ambiguity”. Up to now, general composition, shapes and colors have been my main concerns, more than painting techniques. I use mostly paintbrushes, but I see more and more the potential of using palette knives, since they are more capable of producing transparencies and gleaming colors. Finally, some of my paintings will be accompanied with poems evoking their subjects.
