What are “mixed states?” The term can reference mood, geography, the arrangement of matter, how we fluctuate and view the world over time.
The exhibit by sisters Nina and Sari Gaby explores the mixed terrains of Sari’s traditional landscapes and the mixed-media of Nina’s abstract collage. The question of emotional reactivity figures into these works, the shadows of the Scottish Highlands, the whimsy of tiny books and scrolls layered onto vintage ephemera, the uncommon use of porcelain as abstract image, the startling reality of nature and the always changing landscape of visual narrative.
Both Nina and Sari are award winning, working artists for a combined 9 decades, moving with ease through the genres of ceramics, photography, pastel, oil, fabric, and the written word.
