“GOOD AND PLENTY” is a multimedia exhibition featuring the works of Darcie Book, Amy Hughes Braden, Estee Fox, Matt Hollis and Stefanie Williams curated by Cynthia Connolly. Utilizing distinctive methods, the artists of “GOOD AND PLENTY” may be attempting to recreate the luminosity and hue from the glowing beacons of color televisions, computer monitors, and mobile phones that most of us grew up with. Matt Hollis constructs new worlds using manufactured materials, drawing viewers close by employing the clean vivid color of familiar objects and textures disguised through accumulation. Stephanie Williams’ installation features unnaturally bright colors in thread and fabric, at first obscuring the depiction of forcemeat and human body parts. Darcie Book uses dried acrylic house paint to create swirled, candy-like three-dimensional environments. Estee Fox and Amy Hughes Braden both work in heavily saturated colors, either with acrylic paint or ink on canvas or paper, beckoning viewers to stand close and discover every slash of color and its meaning.
