The Hess Gallery at Pine Manor College is pleased to present new work by Elizabeth Awalt and Angelo Fertitta. Rooted in the natural world, Elizabeth Awalt’s paintings evolve from observational studies into expressive evocations of nature. The micro and macro view of nature exist simultaneously in her recent paintings which weave those two worlds together. Oppositional forces of growth and decay, dark and light, and interior and exterior create a tension both visual and spiritual. Awalt’s paintings are physical beings that shift and change through sanded, wiped, and sensually painted surfaces. Angelo Fertitta absorbs landscape features that dwarf the painter—the Grand Canyon, glaciers, mountains and rivers, and crystallizes them into kaleidoscopic panoramas. Says Fertitta about his work “My drawings, overlaid on the modified images, become the paintings, representing the stream of consciousness experienced while viewing the landscapes. While painting, the use of color follows a similar process. The process for me is both spiritual and meditative; a means to be within myself.”
