We love abstract art. We love the emotional impact of colors and shapes; we love the sense of direct communication that transcends the familiar. So, naturally, we’re drawn to the exhibit of new abstract work by Julie Evans that goes on view at Hudson’s John Davis Gallery beginning today (Thursday).
These are paintings and works on paper made, the artist says in the exhibit notes, “from pieces of painted Mylar, created by random pours and gravitational pools that I cut up, reconfigure and seam together.”
Evans suggests that the final result “imparts a strange, almost creepy reality to the resulting aggregate forms, which remain indefinable and possess the tension of a familiarity that is vague, elusive and evocative.”
The solo exhibit of work by Julie Evans opens today (Thursday, Nov. 8) and will be on view through Dec. 2 at john Davis Gallery (362 1/2 Warren St., Hudson). There will be an opening reception Saturday (Nov. 10) from 6 to 8 PM. For more info, call 828-5907.
