When Time Stops
As the world paused during the early days of confinement, many turned to what felt more essential, more meaningful. For a while, time seemed like suspended… These paintings are a reflection of this moment when nature experienced an unexpected reprieve from human activity. This is also a painted homage, as I feel deep connections with each of these places, because of friendships or family roots. After many years of more abstract painting, I enjoyed this new exploration. As painter David Hockney put it, “Time stopped is perspective.”
Davide Prete’s work has focused on new technologies such as 3D printing and laser scanning combined with traditional metalsmithing techniques. For his latest projects, mathematical equations (especially Scherk Collins surfaces) provide him with a pretext to connect figurative images with a new language, to discover what he called “a new form of shamanism.”
Voices of the Forest
Cheryl Ann Bearss
I paint trees “plein air” and from my imagination in both oil and acrylic. I am inspired by the forest that lay waiting only minutes from my house. When I enter a wooded area, I retreat from everyday concerns. I have traveled across the country, soaking in the beauty of the natural world. I love a forest while it is resting during the winter months. I can clearly see the interconnected roots and branches. I have recently enjoyed the books, The Overstory, Powers and The Hidden Life of Trees, Wohlleben, which speak of the connection of all things in a forest.
Studio Gallery is located at 2108 R St. NW.
