IN THE MAIN AND CENTER GALLERIES

Mary Bucci McCoy: New Paintings

Mary Bucci McCoy's intimate abstract acrylic paintings reconcile intention and acceptance, action and stillness, object and image, and conceptual rigor and intuitive process through a poetic material language that negotiates and exploits the opportunities and exigencies of her chosen medium. The work synthesizes oblique references to the body and the landscape on both macro and micro levels through form, color, and material.

Bucci McCoy's work is increasingly informed by her early experience with the materials, processes, and techniques of ceramic sculpture: from a process of building paintings over a period of time by the deliberate situating of painted marks on a monochromatic ground, she has gradually expanded her practice to include working in a very immediate, improvisational way, with the possibility of an entire painting occurring simultaneously in the still-liquid matrix of the ground.

Bucci McCoy's paintings resist reduction to a single image, requiring the viewer's presence and time to be fully seen, and valuing the interior rather than exterior scale of the viewer's experience. She cites a diverse range of influences for the work in this exhibition, including the work of composer/artist John Cage, choreographer Deborah Hay, sound artist Bill Fontana, as well as traditional Japanese ceramics, artifacts from the ancient territory of Safinim in south central Italy, and the experience of hiking through West Coast volcanic landscapes.

IN THE MEMBERS' GALLERY

Linda Leslie Brown: New Work (with Holes)

Linda Leslie Brown's new works seem to be the product of teleonomic mania. Postapocalyptic Pompeiian lumps, porous and eroded, these objects present undulating masses colliding and melting together with aortic holes penetrating into the core. Brown's works are rife with allusions to the body. At the same time they suggest the plastic, provisional, and uncertain world of a new and transgenic nature, where corporeal and mechanical entities recombine.
