Harris ∙ Stanton Gallery in Akron begins its spring season with, Rhythm in Repetition; new works by Terry Klausman and Kate Snow which opens on March 21st at our Akron gallery location.
Akron-based artist, Terry Klausman began his artistic career working in a variety of mediums. After a welding accident that almost severed a finger on his dominant hand, Klausman began to draw simple repetitive marks with his other hand as a form of physical rehabilitation. The marks began to form lines reminiscent of barbed wire or stitches when repeated obsessively across the surface of the paper. Klausman’s latest work fills the page with an expanded line and a fresh, vibrant palette. The result, beautifully composed Prismacolor pencil drawings where Klausman’s own language starts to emerge. His fluid compositions mix the recurring stitching with simple shapes to create drawings with three-dimensional elements that weave together serenity and contemplation in a rhythmic performance on Arches paper.
Cleveland-based artist, Kate Snow studied printmaking and design at Zygote Press for five years. Snow’s intentional use of line, repetitive shape and a limited color palette, compose pieces that are strategically both simple and complex. This stripped-down approach relies heavily on elements of design that allow the artist to explore the relationship between chaos and control. Snow’s delicate use of printmaking ink and gouache in combination with meditative mark making summon the viewer to take pause, while simultaneously encouraging the eye to dance to the tempo of the paintings.
Rhythm in Repetition, opens at our Akron gallery location, 2301 W. Market Street, with a wine and cheese reception on Thursday, March 21st, 5:30-8pm. A gallery talk by the artists will take place at 6:30pm. The exhibition runs through Saturday, April 27th, 2019.
