At Loading Dock Gallery, Sandrine Colson and Jean Wallace present Black & White. Black and white are culturally powerful signifiers. Black and white thinking reduces the world to binary choices. Black & White explores perception: opposites and the nuances in between.
Colson sees herself as a storyteller. She works abstractly, using bold marks and intricate shapes, often referencing natural forms. Her work is filled with paint swirls, playful paper cut-outs, and three-dimensional objects, resulting in richly textured canvases with intricate layers and meanings.
Wallace draws inspiration from personal experience while addressing universal themes such as family, strength, loss, and grief. Her work is narrative, visceral, and documentary. She works with a variety of media including photography, encaustic painting, and mixed media.
Black & White runs February 4-26, 2023 at Loading Dock Gallery, 122 Western Avenue, Lowell, MA, open noon-5:30pm, Wednesday-Saturday, and noon-4pm Sundays. Reception 3-5pm, Saturday February 4, with Artists Talk at 4pm. For details, visit www.theloadingdockgallery.com.
