Accretion

Charlie Milgrim 

The artist sees a world in flux, a world of perpetual change and transition, a constant building-up and a tearing down.  In these works Milgrim focuses her lens on the Accretive processes in our world that mimic the way of Nature and reveals beauty hidden in plain sight.    

After pallet clean ups, her Alameda High School painting students leave behind colorful residue that builds up, layer after layer, forming surreal imagery.

 This show is an exploration of what draws me into a frame, like a moth drawn to a flame.  There is a point at which, as I create, I myself feel a connection to something greater when I regard the piece.  I hope that viewers will pause and reflect at the warm glow and simple compositions.  The three pieces in this little show each carry a glow within, that I hope to transmit to the viewer.

Jason Foster is driven to create.  He is a builder, a craftsman, and an artist. All these creative processes involve problem solving.  The artistic process has more freedom, but art has a function.  His artistic process begins with a camera. Foster’s goal is to manifest a connection with viewers on emotional and psychological levels.  This is achieved through manipulation (problem solving) of tones, colors, and shapes. Sometimes the subject is clearly recognizable and often more abstract.  The entire frame is considered and presented to the viewer for contemplation and reflection.
