Moving Forward: New & Recent Work by Vanessa Irzyk

September 29 – November 1, 2011
Opening Reception: September 29, 7-9pm

The Distillery Gallery is pleased to present “Moving Forward,” an exhibit of new and recent works by long-time Distillery artist, Vanessa Irzyk. The show will pair Irzyk’s current abstract works with selections from the artist’s previous series of figurative paintings.

Irzyk has recently departed from her span of uniquely tempestuous depictions of people laden with exaggerated facial features and expression to focus on a new series of abstract mixed media pieces. The process for each of these bodies of work begins with a predetermined background color where imagery is then created upon and influenced by that hue. The abstract works are full of fast-moving forms that swirl and stack with interrelated areas that are covered up, revealed, and cropped. Through the use of opposing colors, the artist prompts vibration and movement within each composition.

“Moving Forward” highlights Irzyk’s current creative state while revealing the inherent connections to a previous one. Works from both series are undeniable specific to the artist’s hand and display the culmination of diligent practice and progress.

Please join us for the opening reception on Thursday, September 29, from 7-9pm.
