Adit’s Ode: A Modest Revolt http://eyelounge.com/adits-ode-a-modest-revolt/ http://eyelounge.com/adits-ode-a-modest-revolt/#comments Mon, 13 Apr 2015 21:33:20 +0000 http://eyelounge.com/?p=3959 East Gallery and Project Room


Cherie Buck-Hutchison

A Poetic Walk-through Exhibition merging art installation, objects and video poetry to create an immersive experience for the viewer.

Adit’s Ode: A Modest revolt complicates the traditional narrative by suggesting an additional point of view through the poetic metaphor of Lot’s wife (Adit) as a visitor to today’s contradictory health issues. Buck-Hutchison takes a feminist approach through a revision of the main character’s story, leaving the viewer to draw comparisons and ultimately ask one’s self the question, “what if.”

Stone Soup – Recent Works by Turner G. Davis http://eyelounge.com/stone-soup-recent-works-by-turner-g-davis/ http://eyelounge.com/stone-soup-recent-works-by-turner-g-davis/#comments Tue, 17 Mar 2015 19:56:24 +0000 http://eyelounge.com/?p=3930 East Gallery and Project Room


Turner G. Davis

The exhibition “Stone Soup” is comprised of mostly new images and decorated found objects by Turner G. Davis. The title of the show reflects the diversity of mediums and the underlying themes of existential search for meaning and a yearning and aversion to clarity in the 21st Century. In the original story called “Stone Soup” a soldier convinces his unlikely hosts to contribute to an unlikely recipe. It is only through their (in this case the viewer) contributions that the result becomes, in fact, nourishing and of import. It is the hope of the artist to create an environment of pictures and objects that comprise the first ingredients of a larger collaboration and investigation.

Rossitza Todorova: Fold & Cut http://eyelounge.com/tba/ http://eyelounge.com/tba/#comments Mon, 12 Jan 2015 23:02:27 +0000 http://eyelounge.com/?p=3875 Project Room

An exhibition of new work, artist books and paper sculptures

It goes without saying that a profound mystery lies behind the notions of space and time. We occupy space and experience time. The two are connected and intertwined for each of us. There is a connection between the structure of time dimension and spatial coordinates. As we see the phases of the moon from earth we experience and see the passage of time, directly connected to our physical point of view.

Working with simple repeated geometry, I have been exploring ideas of time and space. Paper is linear, two-dimensional, but through folding, creasing and cutting I have given this simple medium a three-dimensional form. I think of these sculptural collapsible books as representing space over time. In this exhibition I am using images of diamonds, cup paper books and cast shadows to create a metaphor of the passage of time.

New work in clay by Cheryl Brandon and Constance McBride

This work was born simply, out of recent events occurring around the country. It stems from a shared concern for humankind in this time of 24/7 communication. We believe expressing the shared humanity in people is an important way to support each other. We can’t ignore this sometimes cruel and frightening, yet sometimes wonderful and beautiful experience we all go through in life and contrary to the edited version of ourselves we share in traditional and social media, life’s moments are still messy and full of emotional turmoil.

Our goal was to capture the essence of a range of human experiences, from intensely personal to broader realities of our collective lives. We are showing ourselves as we are and celebrating the beauty of the human face.
