A Sense of Place - Paul Grecian and Materese Roche

Please join us for Artists' Gallery's August show:

"A Sense of Place"
Visions of Land, Sea, and Sky
by Paul Grecian and Materese Roche

Aug 5 - Sept 4, 2011
Opening reception: Saturday, August 6, 5-8 pm

"Passing Storm"

"The question is not what you look at, but what you see."

Henry David Thoreau wrote that in his famous journal 160 years ago this month. Artists Paul Grecian and Materese Roche honor the spirit of Thoreau's vision with their own interpretation in their new joint show, "A Sense of Place". The collection of new landscapes, skyscapes and waterscapes debuts Friday, August 5, and will be on display through Monday, September 5 at the Artists' Gallery. Grecian, a photographer and Roche, who works in oils, will host an opening reception Saturday, August 6, from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Gallery. During the reception, they will reveal the results of a collaborative project, designed for this show.

Grecian and Roche will each create a work based on one pre-determined image. The artists have selected one 'neutral' image which they will individually interpret, in their respective mediums. They will translate the scene, bringing to it their individual emotional responses, creativity and vision. It's a logical extension of Grecian and Roche's shared aesthetic and a reflection of Thoreau's quote.

Both artists have had the experience of people connecting to their work as specific places they know and have a deep emotional response to. "However" says Grecian "those are often not the places we've depicted, I believe this suggests we have managed to tap into some universal experience of the landscape".

Materese's and Paul's work transcends paint and paper, surface and image, as well as the specifics of time and place. It connects you to the essence and universality of the natural world. See it in person and there's no denying its power.
