Fabric of the Sky show featured at MAINSITE Contemporary Art – May 11th!
Asia Scudder, wire sculptor, will exhibit with George Oswalt, Eyakem Gulilat, David Simpson at MAINSITE Contemporary Art: Home of the Norman Arts Council in Norman, Oklahoma.
May 11, 2012.
This show, titled “Fabric of Sky” is a visual exploration of each artist’s view of
our place in a conscious universe.
Asia Scudder is an Oklahoma City artist who transforms baling wire from merely material into delicate lines by which her works become other worldly.“I work to involve elements of the cosmos”, said Scudder. The combination of the mysterious early cultures of our world as well as the deep search for meaning and compassion she employs create an ethereal experience.
George Oswalt : “I received my M.F.A. from the University of Oklahoma and have been exhibiting my art since 1974 in group and individual shows. My paintings are visual presentations that convey the mystery that I see and feel around me”.
Eyakem Gulilat: “My work is about how identity is formed in the in-between spaces of cross cultural encounter. I gravitate towards communities which are underrepresented and treat my camera as a tool that captures one moment of a larger dialogue that occurs between me and my subjects. my art thrives on my interaction with people. Through this process I ask the following questions: “What is the difference between the subject and the photographer? What is the border that distinguishes us one from another? What is the space that divides us and how do our perceptions shift when we view each other through the camera’s lens?”
David Simpson: Is a Norman-based writer.
