VISIONS/REVISIONS ...stepping into the same river twice (Twenty-one in Truro)
April 22 - August 1, 2021.
TWENTY-ONE IN TRURO
VISIONS / REVISIONS
... stepping into the same river twice.
When creating a work of art, an artist may see her subject one way initially, and then at a later time, interpret the same subject quite differently. This could happen on the same day, from morning to night; or it could happen over a matter of months or years. The artist may use two different mediums to depict the very same subject, resulting in two distinctly different outcomes. Or she may choose to take a fresh look at a realistic work painted on site and create an abstract interpretation later on in the studio.
Sometimes it’s not the artist’s interpretation that has changed at all –it’s the landscape itself, altered by nature or changed by man over the years. To quote Anais Nin: “We write to taste life twice, in the moment and in retrospection.”
This exhibition gives the viewer a glimpse into the changing perceptions of the TWENTY-ONE IN TRURO artists. By returning to the same location each year, these women artists have had the privilege of seeing and interpreting the Truro landscape together over twenty-two years.
