Julia Bloom - Sculptures & Drawings
Jackie Battenfield - Paintings on Mylar
The exhibited works of Jackie Battenfield and Julia Bloom in Branched were chosen to complement each other, to draw enticing visual and aesthetic parallels in distinctly different styles. Where Bloom's drawings and constructions cast literal shadows, Battenfield's paintings have an sleek, porcelain seeming surface with just a hint of impasto. Both artists, however, find inspiration in close observation of nature and produce compelling and accomplished works.
