MOMENTS REDEFINED | Richard Crangle & Kristine Fisher
photographic compositions . mixed media . wood elements
@ Jane Deering Gallery 19 Pleasant Street . Gloucester MA
Photographed over a period of 9 years, Moments Redefined presents a selection of textural images recomposed by artists Richard Crangle and Kristine Fisher. The exhibition is designed to evoke curiosity and wonder for the beautifully raw and remote Isola di Pantelleria, an ancient Italian island located 60 miles southwest of Sicily and 40 miles east of the Tunisian coast. Known as the ‘Black Pearl of the Mediterranean’ for its vineyards and orchards terraced from volcanic stone, the island is the home of the world-famous Moscato Passito wine. Olives and capers ripple over a rustic land that is Sicilian, Italian, distinctively Pantellerian!
Moments Redefined celebrates the juxtaposition of hard and soft details, tonality, and imagery. These are the mini moments our eyes too often do not see.
Richard Crangle — From his studio in Gloucester, Massachusetts, Crangle creates refined wood sculptural forms and furniture that summon a reverence for each wood’s unique character. He incorporates time-honored craftsmanship with contemporary expression using local, reclaimed, and exotic woods. Crangle’s vocabulary of abstract and organic themes, repeated patterns, and textures evoke the inclusion of visual grace, movement and innovation. His work is in the Peabody Essex Museum, Salem, Massachusetts and in many private collections.
Kristine Fisher — Fisher is a visual artist based in Gloucester, Massachusetts, working in photography and, more recently, getting messy with mixed media. Using the camera, Fisher enjoys conveying a ‘sense of place’ by weaving a narrative that focuses on the discovery of ‘off the grid’ locations. Her mixed media work is deeply influenced by an extensive career in commercial architectural design with global innovator, Herman Miller. She is drawn to structure, bold forms, and graphic composition. Fisher has exhibited with numerous North Shore arts organizations.
The exhibition continues through Sunday, September 29, 2019
Gallery hours: Friday, Saturday & Sunday 1:00 - 5:00pm and by appointment
