The color green; changeable and mutable. Is it the color of new love, life and youth, plants and nature; or is it the shade of envy, sickness and irresponsibility? Does it bring to mind recycling, conservation, and the environment or the color of money, ambition, and greed? Whether a soothing forest green or shocking acid green, the range is widely varied and The Green Show will exhibit various forms and interpretations.
Work from Aaron Wilder's Details project is included in the exhibition. Inspired by the Evidence collaboration between Larry Sultan and Mike Mandel as well as Sol LeWitt's PhotoGrids, Details is a series of zoomed in photographs of minutiae in the cityscape. It is an exploration of marks, patterns, and signs of weathering. These are details of human impact and manipulation cut off from context to emphasize the aesthetics of wear and tear that typically go unnoticed in our daily lives. In addition to individual photographs, Details also explores levels of granularity and the limitations of rendering minute details of details as visible through dissecting each image into 121 individual sub-photographs printed as Instax prints.
JUROR: Denise Demby is a contemporary abstract painter, gallery owner, and glass artist who lives in Arvada, Colorado.
As a recipient of Colorado Scholars scholarship, Denise earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from Metropolitan State College of Denver (Now Metropolitan State University) studying printmaking, painting, and ceramics.
Self-described as a modern neo-minimalist, Denise has exhibited locally and across the country in local and national juried and invitational shows.
She has been active in the arts community through her membership in the Santa Fe Arts District, 40 West Arts District, and the Arvada Studio Tour in Arvada, Colorado. She also owns and manages 931 Gallery, formerly the Art Station, now located in the Santa Fe Arts District in Denver.
Her philosophy and passion for art is best reflected in her mission statement where Denise states “art is an extremely important aspect of our society and we must continue to work to communicate its message, in its many forms and to support artists in their efforts.”
Judging the work will relied on overall impact, content, composition, and mastery of techniques. Attention to creativity and craftsmanship was a very important part of this as well.
Core New Art Space is dedicated to creating and maintaining a dynamic, independent forum, and provides a venue for the contemporary arts.
