Evermore, featuring Karen Bondarchuk, Joshua Rowan, & Teresa Wang, opened last night with an amazing turnout! Josh and Karen were in attendance and gave guests interesting insight into their works.
Some information on the artists’ work:
Karen Bondarchuk – (Michigan) Karen’s scavenged tire rubber sculptures and drawings explore the artificiality that often defines our relationship with the wild, and the reality that most close encounters with wildlife are by human design (zoos, roadsides, galleries, natural history museums, etc.). Her work has common thematic elements of animals and language for the past several years, examining linguistic and physiological connections between animals and humans, and most recently has centered on crows and ravens.
Joshua Rowan – (St. Louis) Josh’s photographs catch the beauty in the mundane and attempts to find the sometimes small and fleeting perfect alignments of time, angle, and color. The locations of his photographs include Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado; Jalisco, Mexico; Brooklyn, New york; Cherokee, North Carolina; and St. George, South Carolina.
Teresa Wang – (St. Louis) Teresa’s oil paintings, based on modern Chinese poetry, bridge Eastern and Western artistic traditions. While her Chinese background heavily influences the formation of her ideas, the education she received in the States guides the way toward expressing her ideas and presenting her imagination through her work.
