Suzy Scarborough’s collages come to life as reimagined dream-like landscapes. These hand-selected images overtake her panels as they piece together a unified, utopian future. The layers of golden varnish and the addition of acrylic allows her work to become complete, dispelling the image of the collage. These images echo a conceptual idealistic world that Scarborough envisions, an “imagination of this new paradigm and a call for all likeminded people to join me in manifesting a true golden age on Earth.” By applying layers and layers of book pages from various texts such as: medical, mathematical, botanicals, geography, and art history she creates her Globalist View of humanity in all its glory.
Inspired by natural occurring forms in nature, Patera Kori Studios (Darlene Davis) are a father and daughter duo who incorporates spirals patterns in their kinetic wood sculptures. Spirals are found everywhere in life, from nature, art, mathematics, botany, architecture, and psychology. While there are spirals in the wood grain and the overall shape of the sculpture, the secondary piece moves in a spiral around the sculpture, creating another spiral. “The kinetic component introduces movements that communicate the ordered, balanced perfection of spirals in nature.” These spiral sculptures bring a sense of relaxation, calming and balance to the viewer.
The exhibition is located at 1111 Pennsylvania Ave. NW. For more information, visit www.zenithgallery.com.
