Larry C. Volk and Jill Weber:
"A Second Look"
Revisit key artworks from the recent exhibitions "The 4 Questions" by Larry C. Volk and "New Paintings" by Jill Weber.
Larry C. Volk: "The 4 Questions"
The 4 Questions uses the Passover Seder as a framework to explore the Holocaust experiences of Rosette Volk, the artist’s mother.
Larry Volk explores his family history through the ritual of the Seder meal, which embodies Jewish tradition of recollection and remembrance.
Jill Weber: "New Paintings"
My work incorporates the essentials of architectural space and detail into compositions that are both ambiguous and concrete. In each painting I intentionally create a disorienting sense of depth and movement.
It has been said that I turn “our perceptions about space upside down by morphing the tangible, asking us to confront architectural space as repositories of memory and the endless possibilities of human interaction."
I hope that is true.
