A WALK THROUGH THE GALLERY
Exhibit curator, Sigrid Trumpy, met with fellow artists Neil Harpe and Cassandra Kabler to explore this show together. We hope you’ll enjoy their walk through the gallery.
“In Garden, it feels like we are going along a path and glimpsing a garden through it. It is a coming together of being in a garden, where Elliott has thrown in one color over the other. There is a sense of simultaneous spaces, all of which creates an experience of being in a patio garden.”
“I found the image very restful and in particular love the colors that Elliott uses. Green is not a color you often see as the dominant color in an artwork. Also, the center vertical negative spaces give the appearance of looking through to the sky. I do not see a garden, I see colors I might see in a garden, which creates the restfulness.”
ANOTHER FRAME OF REFERENCE
Each of us brings our own perspective as we engage with the works in this show. Included here are additional references we hope enrich and expand your experience.
“122” by Elliott Zuckerman
Gardens lie buried, there, in an unlearned language.
A few stray words are fragments of flowers saying
that nothing ever is over. Look for the doorway
hidden behind feathery stretches of hedges.
