Process Gallery. Pentimenti - ARTIFACTS Pam Patterson and Leena Raudvee

In Individual Points of Fiction, an A Space performance and exhibition, June 2012, ARTIFACTS, known for its site-specific performances, deepened its relationship with/in space as Patterson and Raudvee addressed the divide between, and notion of, progress as process/product. They focused on the research component of performance and, if one can recognize artistic practice as performative, of studio practice. For Pentimenti, they intend to advance this idea at Gallery 1313’s Process Gallery and focus specifically on the interrelationships among image, sound, and mark making as a collaborative and performative activity. “Pentimenti”, as term, refers to multiple alternations in a painting. Traces of previous activity linger; the artists changed their minds during the making. Here making is integral to the image formation – it is fluid, lucent and unpredictable – performance is painterly.
Cell Gallery : Shape Shifters-a series of drawings by Ella Day .I used pastels on overlaid sheets of paper for these portraits.I went to the zoo a lot as a kid. I remember that the people looked like the animals they were watching.I think that is how the shape shifters started, somewhere between those memories and my idea of what a circus
might be like. I consider the majority of my work to be portraiture. Portraits of people or of places. I see my subjects in a state of metamorphosis, alive, moving and breathing, and in a world where lines are blurred and shapes shift. I draw mainly with chalk pastels. I like their contradictory and expressive properties.
Over the years my practice has expanded to include mixed media 3d constructions, installation and photography.
