Artist: Cara Close
“Resonance” is a body of work motivated by a search for balance between the intuitive and rational self. Combining her design background and interest in portraiture, Cara Close makes images of herself and others that utilize a graphic style while remaining insistently representational. In her paintings, drawings, and sculptural objects, she employs formal design strategies while emphasizing personal meaning. Gathering inspiration from the coexistence of the natural and man-made world, she aims to generate tension and vibration in her work through a mixed media approach to her subject matter.
Reception: Wednesday April 25, 5 – 7pm
Artist Talk: Tahoe Gallery, 5:30pm
