Courtney Sanborn “Narrative Thread” Opening at Redbud Gallery


Artist Statement:
 
“My work presents private moments, conversations, and events that punctuate the rhythm of my daily existence. The settings and characters are metaphorical in nature and exist in a space born from direct observation and memory.  Play is balanced by the presence of a darker more serious reality. It is from this duality that these narratives unfold.
 
Bright color, bold composition, and pattern are the founders of my process. I capture imagery from a wide variety of sources ranging from medieval illuminated manuscripts, to the hooked rug designs of Marguerite Zorach. My compositions are influenced by a rich history of Americana and folk art including hooked rugs, early American needlepoint samplers, and vernacular paintings.”

On View: December 1 - December 31, 2018.

Everyday Sorcery Exhibition


Cindy Lisica Gallery presents the
newest paintings by the celebrated Houston artist Catherine Colangelo.
“Everyday Sorcery” refers to her roles of artist and mother, and this body of
work was created during an especially tumultuous time. While the pieces are
rich in personal symbolism, the “outsider” may not be privy to the stories
behind the images. Colangelo takes us on a powerful visual journey that stems
from her own personal relationships. With her son becoming a teenager and
“leaving the nest”, the days of being a physical protector to a child are gone.
She works through life’s issues with a splendid process resulting in vibrant
colors, refined forms, and careful layering of gouache on muslin.

Colangelo’s visual vocabulary
includes metaphysical and symbolic images of protection. Familiar to followers
of her past work, the all-seeing eyes persist, as well as mazes, masks and
veils, which serve to confuse those spirits with bad intent. Further dimension
is added with “Mom” rattles, to be shaken in the dark. Currents of fresh and
saltwater bring strong directional currents that merge in estuaries.
Heliotropes are bright colored flowers that grow toward light, and, according
to the artist: “Paintings reflect unexpected elements and bittersweet emotions.
For example, kites are an emblem of childhood potential. Kites can soar high,
take unpredictable twists and turns, crash to the ground, or even grow an
unexpected number of tails. Life is funny that way.” Intuitively painted with
colorful patterns, the work functions as protective talismans and examines the
uplifting power of color and the creative process during emotional periods in
our lives.

 

Artist Bio: After
completing her BFA in Painting from The Cooper Union in New York City in 1992,
Catherine Colangelo returned to her native Houston. She received Individual
Artist Grant Fellowships from the Houston Arts Alliance in 2007 and 2011, was a
Hunting Prize finalist in 2010 and 2014, and an Artadia Award finalist in 2017.
She was selected by Bill Arning from over 1000 entrants to be included in New
American Paintings, No. 102, and appears in the West Issue, No. 126, juried by
Claire C. Carter, Curator of Contemporary Art at the Scottsdale Museum of
Contemporary Art. Her work has appeared in many museums and galleries, and she
has held major local solo exhibitions at Lawndale Art Center, The Jung Center,
and Art League Houston. Colangelo’s impressive work is found in significant
international private and corporate collections, including the Four Seasons
Hotel (Abu Dhabi, UAE), Fidelity Investments (Boston), and Sidley Austin LLP
(Houston). She has also been featured in Art in America, Glasstire, Houstonia,
Houston Press, Art Houston, Visual Art Source, Voyage Houston, The Austin
Chronicle and The Houston Chronicle.
