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.
