Materiality and Mark-making in Abstraction

Materiality and Mark-making in Abstraction

 was curated from a class taught by Jeff Hirst and Lisa Pressman in July of 2020.

The 5-day workshop  featured three live days and two days of individual feedback where we  focused on each individual participant’s work, fine-tuning content, intention and technique. 
The goal of the class was to have a transformation happen in the studio..The workshop included: 
One conference call  individual work with both artists
Five days of creating with three directed study days with Lisa and Jeff
critique with Chicago gallery owner, Dan Addington    
Individual and group discussions 

We are planning another workshop in September. Limited Seating
Please email for information.

This exhibition covers a wide cross section of work including gestural abstraction, reductive minimalism, abstract figurative painting and sculptural installations. The art  in the exhibition includes paintings using complex color structure along side monochromatic palettes that work together well as a whole. Delicate passages contrast robust physical surfaces playing together to create a dialogue much like a musical ensemble works with contrasting musicians. Each artist in the exhibition has created work reflective of their involvement with process and materials.

Gangaramaya temple is not only a temple - it is about 150 years old and almost all of its area is littered with museum artifacts and older and somewhat random gifts like wrist watches, money, and artwork.

First setup by Venerable Hikkaduwe Sri Sumangala, it has gotten some flack for wanting to become both a Buddhist temple and a tourist attraction, however we all believe that it has got an extremely distinctive charm of its own.

The voice analytics market by component covers solutions and services. The solution segment outperforms the services segment and would see growth in the future, due to higher adoption of solutions. The voice analytics solution empowers users to analyze recordings of conversations to identify the emotions and intent of the speakers. It analyzes the audio patterns for certain features, such as tone, stress, tempo, pitch, and rhythm. It helps enhance customer satisfaction and competitive intelligence, reduce customer churn by predicting at-risk customers, and identify risks and frauds. Consulting services mainly steer around the critical issues and opportunities related to strategies, marketing, operations, technologies, mergers and acquisitions, and finance, leading to increased effectiveness, improved performance, reduced costs, and enhanced resilience. Consulting services are required by retail stores, retail planners, and merchandisers for enhanced strategic outlook, improved performance efficiencies, and transformed business operations of retail-related activities into more efficient and cost-effective operations.

The rise in the demand for base metals by buildings and the construction industry owing to the rising urbanization, infrastructural development, and growth in the number of construction activities is the root cause fueling up the base metal mining market growth rate. Rising demand for electric vehicles and other commercial vehicles and growth and expansion of the automotive industry especially in developing economies are other factors responsible for propelling growth in the base metal mining market value. Rising industrialization coupled with increasing demand for copper worldwide will also directly and positively impact the growth rate of the base metal mining market. The rising focus of the government on pro-mining policies coupled with an increase in disposable income are some other important but indirect base metal mining market growth determinants.
