September 8 – 30, 2023
Tesserae: locus, tempus (part 2)
paintings by Dominick Takis and Diane Teubner
Opening Reception: September 10, 2-5 pm
Third Thursday Reception: September 21, 6-9 pm
Two painters continue their exploration of place and time in their work.
Dominick Takis interprets the land and texture of Sicily, and the ancestral feelings he experienced during a trip to his grandparents’ birthplaces in October 2022. Using paint, lichen, branches, caulking, and mixed-media tesserae, his work reflects his intense appreciation of the mosaics and art of all the peoples who marched through and settled Sicily.
Diane Teubner explores time as it is experienced rhythmically by the grid of color blocks and lines within and between her paintings. She attends to the felt and visual sense of interval and measure, which in turn, gives her a sense of being in place.
