In the Corrine I and II: Marta L. Maxwell: Native Wonderland and Susan Woods: Drawings
November 7 @ 12:00 pm - December 9 @ 5:00 pm
Marta L. Maxwell: Native Wonderland and
Susan Woods: Drawings
Corrine Woodman Gallery I and II | Nov 7 – Dec 9, 2017
Marta Maxwell is showing “soft sculpture”. Soft Sculptures are three-dimensional objects, not intended as toys made from fiber materials, in Maxwell’s case: felt. Although their feel is soft, it does not mean that these sculptures are saccharine, or sentimental. Maxwell draws her inspiration mostly from nature and Native American culture, and her work has a certain fierceness, as well as in an eerie realism.
Susan Woods is an artist/affiliate of CEI ArtWorks. She has been creating intuitive drawings with marker ink on paper. The work is non-representational, black and white; the lines are tentative interspersed with more decisive looking dense shapes. Woods uses a variety of black sharpies; even within that limitation of just black Woods is making many decisions on where a particular drawing is going.
