How do you take your artwork from flat to sculptural? Using polyhedral patterns, participants will take an analogue approach to creating designs that wrap around a shape, thinking about how to create artwork that is interesting and exciting in both a 2D and 3D viewing. Experiment with pattern and value as you work through the issues of paper construction to create beautiful lightweight forms.

Andromeda Falling

Through September 22 The Florence Regional Arts Alliance is pleased to introduce a new exhibition to the Florence County Museum’s Waters Gallery.

 

The solo exhibition will feature the work of artist Adrian Rhodes and includes an artist reception in the Waters Building Tuesday, August 22 at 6pm. All are invited to explore the work and meet the artist. The Gallery is located at 135 South Dargan Street in Florence.

 

The exhibition is a collection of several years of Rhodes’ work consisting of mixed media, paper cuts, collage, linocuts, and lithography. The exhibition features the title work, Andromeda Falling, a new mixed media installation, and Skycharts, a new series of 12 paper works. Rhodes’ use of charting, navigation, DNA, and hive imagery is delicately executed through her techniques of hand cutting paper and printmaking.

 

Rhodes’ work reflects, “on our sense of nostalgia and the yearning associated with generational memory. Printmaking is the core of my process, allowing for the swift installation of recurring imagery and personal iconography into the work. Sky maps of constellations, navigational charts and the matriarchal structure of bee colonies reference connections between mothers and daughters. DNA structures and printmaking processes examine issues of inheritance. Sky charts represent a primal force- the vastness of the universe – paired with the complexity of bee society to comment on the way maternal bonds can be both fierce and fraught, a complex connection that pulls against chaotic forces in an attempt to align itself in an organic balance.”

 

The artist’s goal is by using DNA imagery and the mechanics of print generated material to literally inherit the visual content from one work to the next work, creating a memory much like our own generational memory. Her work prompts us to contemplate how generations before, especially mother and daughter lineage, define, map, and influence our past and future.

 

Rhodes a South Carolina native, most recently exhibited in Dalton Gallery, Center for the Fine Arts in Rock Hill, SC; Rebecca Randall Bryan Art Gallery, Coastal Carolina University in Conway, SC; and Ross Gallery, Central Piedmont Community College in Charlotte, NC. She is an artists-in-residence with Black Creeks Arts Council in Hartsville, SC.

The Waters Gallery is open Monday through Friday 10am – 5pm. There is no admission fee
