Dual Conversation by Chad Henry and Phyllis Rider
October 18 - November 10, 2018
- Third Friday artists’ reception: October 19 from 6-9pm
Chad Henry, Dancing in the Street, collage on panel, 16” x 12”Chad Henry: Artist Statement
Chad Henry’s show features new and recent collages with an emphasis on male relationships – fathers and sons, friends, brothers, lovers, antagonists, saints, monks, and memory. Alongside themes of love, faith and celebration, there are images of the underlying dread, worry, anger and disconnect that saturate our 21st Century experience, expressed through fragmented and improvised surfaces. The images are drawn from a studio jammed with archived books, magazines, street trash, old posters and paper scraps, and put together in the usual artist’s dialogue of image and response. Chad has studied painting with Jeffrey Wenzel, Homare Ikeda, Jordan Wolfson and others, and collage with Jonathan Talbot, Cecil Touchon and Catherine Chang Liu.
Phyllis Rider: Artist Statement
Traveling with Phyllis Rider is learning how to see color, pattern and life of a region not all that familiar to you. She loves exploring countries that have a rich diverse story and are on the exotic side of history, thus choosing Morocco for her latest adventure. She feels the country is changing in many current ways yet still holds everything together with their deep foundation in the Muslim faith. Keeping this in mind she shows through her monotypes the influences of the regions colors, patterns and religious icons. She explores this DUAL CONVERSATION in many of the monotypes and a painting. Her sculpture is more about the color influence and looking into a spiritual place.
