Traveling in Place, Marcie Wolf-Hubbard
April 10 - May 5. Artist’s Reception: April 14 (7–9pm)
From the artist:
I am once again honored to be exhibiting my paintings at Politics and Prose. “Traveling in Place,” is a collection of paintings evocative of travel, exotic places, and imaginary excursions in encaustic (wax), mixed media and charcoal. In creating my paintings, I launch my drawings of the human figure and of nature to places, parts unknown. Holding papers from long ago—a different era, a different place allows me to "time travel" without leaving the studio, without leaving home. I'm compelled to investigate, touch, and handle items—forming a connection, taking me to another place, another time, creating environments for my figures and beings. The paintings "World Traveler," "Well Traveled," "Near and Distant Thoughts,” "Traveling in Place,” and others, place the human figure in environments with remnants of history in old postcards and map fragments, transporting us to another place.
