Listening at the Edges: Marianne Calenda on view at curio. Gallery & Creative Supply

April 5 @ 17:00 - 20:00

Join curio. Gallery & Creative Supply in the opening of Listening at the Edges featuring work by local artist Marianne Calenda.

“I am here in the landscape. My imagination is punctuated by the musk of damp leaves and the trill of the red-winged blackbird swaying in the cattails–
by cedar waxwing jostling in the bramble,
by a gnarled sycamore praising winter’s blue,
by ferns dancing under beech towers,
by field mustard crowning the hilltop and wheat fringe hemming the lane,
And billows, upon billows of clouds heralding change.”
-Marianne Calenda
In these words you can find yourself standing next to Marianne as she works. The landscapes she conjures feel real. They reach into our minds with long fingers like sunlight through tears in the trees, highlighting the path to deep seeded memories. Observation & gesture so finely tuned it convinces us that we know these places. Painterly actions paired with masterful drawing make artworks that reside in the brush between fields of abstraction and the forest of realism.

Marianne describes her process and work with monotypes:
“A monotype is a singular, original work created by applying pigment to a non-absorbent surface. In this case the images were developed with acrylic paint on a gelatin plate and hand printed on various types of paper. Following Degas’ technique, soft pastel was added to the printed image to enrich, enliven, or subdue.

The monotypes are glimpses of a fragile landscape designed to evocate rather than describe. The viewer is invited to fill in the details with personal remembrances of its textures, colors, and vibrations.”
