LIGHT.MATTER.ENERGY - Sculpture and Paintings by Marjorie Kaye

LIGHT.MATTER.ENERGY
Sculpture and Paintings by Marjorie Kaye

January 25-February 25, 2016
Artist's Reception:  February 4, 6-8pm

HARBOR GALLERY
University of Massachusetts, Boston

The spacious exhibition rooms at Harbor Gallery at the University of Massachusetts in Boston will be hosting the work of Marjorie Kaye, who will be showing sculpture, both wall relief and free standing, as well as gouache paintings.
Her work utilizes classical structure as a vehicle for blatant expression. The work is boldly color saturated and organic. Forms point upward or sideways from a centrifugal base, hunting and seeking. Observation of the work stands on the edge of a physical experience. Passion and complexity of expression emerge within the form.
The sculptures consist of individual forms cut from plywood, nailed and layered with wood glue. Some of the pieces are painted with gouache and sealed with acrylic medium. Others are made to be either interior or exterior pieces harmoniously settled within the environment, painted with exterior house paint. Whether free-standing or wall mounted, the pieces are built out from a mass or a singular point. Many are layered in a circular formation, forming cone-like attached entities. The small gouache paintings are deconstructed form, patterns being blown apart to reveal the motion within.  Rhythm comes from the sum of its parts, rather than an attempt to organize them. Ms. Kaye observes that within the etheric universe lies the mechanics of duality, vibrating between the laws of intention and those of magnetism. She perceives drifting pockets of chance, coming together in an ocean of predetermination all around her. Her work casts shadows and questions within these planes of energy.
