Nature's Pulse, artwork by artist Callie Danae Hirsch,
On display at the Suffern Free Library, Feb. 5th thru Feb. 29th, 2012. Open to all!
Energy vibration, the life force of our universe, serves as the inspiration for the series of work presented by Callie Danae Hirsch. Curated for children and adults alike, Ms. Hirsch’s show is a compilation of pieces painted on traditional surfaces as well as an electric guitar (in collaboration with guitar maker, Brian Slyman), and two skateboards. In addition Ms. Hirsch showcases photographs of the MTA Commissioned work, VAST to be installed on the 105th Street A/S train platform in Rockaway Beach. Ms. Hirsch illustrates the pulsating rhythm, energy as a life force, and artistic possibilities in everyday objects.
Each painting demonstrates an attempt to resolve the conflict between personal identity as a living body and its place in the natural world. This discussion is shown through seductive patterns and flowing streams of energy represented by dots through the plains of the painted surface, which make the depth of movement magical. The natural world is visually alive in Ms. Hirsch’s work with all the twists and turns in which it travels. The patterning of dots represents this movement of natural energy and is threaded throughout the work.
“The paintings here are a glimpse into one person's process; finding conflict or resolution by creating forms inseparable from anthropological, spiritual and natural forces . . . cycling one's past into the present and back into a common past.” P. Lie, Designer
