Rhythm & Nature, Kinetic Rhythms by Winston Lee Mascarenhas
Aug 30 – Sep 21, 2017
Rhythm and Nature is a two-person show featuring photographs by Allison V. Smith and encaustic paintings by Winston Lee Mascarenhas. The inspiration for the rhythmic works by Mascarenhas is drawn from history, music and nature. Nature is what inspires Allison Smith to make photos. Being prepared for "that moment" is what she lives for and accomplishes so well. There is a sing-song vibe about the two artists work together that makes this exhibition so special. A common thread can be seen and almost felt when seeing the photographs and encaustic pieces side by side. Both artists are purists in every sense of the word. Smith shoots with an old Hasselblad camera and Mascarenhas uses the ancient painting medium of Encaustic. The viewer is invited to get lost in the nostalgia of Smith's photos and the intricate details in Mascarenhas' paintings.
