Ned Evans / Carly Glovinksi / Liza Sylvestre @ Nahcotta
Portsmouth, NH – This April, Nahcotta combines the work of three spectacular artists – Ned Evans, Carly Glovinski, and Liza Sylvestre. On view from April 4 until April 27 and the opening reception is Friday, April 4, from 5-8 p.m., concurrent with Portsmouth’s downtown art walk.
Liza Sylvestre, a Minneapolis-based artist who’s shown in Canada, Brooklyn, NY, and Miami, FL, among other cities, will be exhibiting new pieces from her “Elements” series, acrylic and archival ink works on panel. Predominantly borne from the beauty of natural elements, these transcendentally gorgeous works are evocative of an elusive, mysterious recombinant - exotic flora coalesced with the intricacies of our inner organs. Glovinski’s “Phone Book Series,” ink, graphite, colored pencil, and acrylic on paper, speak to the artist’s long-time fascination with the quotidian elements “so woven into our everyday experience they are often rendered invisible.” Glovinski cleverly recreates these objects, whether they are phone books or rags or plastic swimming pools, showing how they, in actuality, unite us all. She has shown her work throughout Boston and Maine, as well as London, England. Venice, California artist Ned Evans’s resin wall reliefs are part of his ongoing exploration of form to negative space, touching upon the wonderful translucency of poured resin in his hand-shaped, bright white polyurethane foam vessels. A lifelong surfer, Evans’s paintings, works on paper, and resin reliefs share elements of fluidity and radiance, with light glowing from an indiscernible and captivating, source.
