Jo Ann Biagini: Thicket – MERCURY 20 GALLERY

May 7 - June 12

Free

Jo Ann Biagini makes layered, mixed-media works on and out of paper. The work in her latest exhibition, Thicket, has its beginnings in books, reflecting her interest in reading and in nature imagery found on the printed page. She starts by configuring discarded book pages into grids, then builds up layers, improvisationally combining shape, color, scale and meaning using drawing, painting, image transfer, collage and sanding. Working surfaces with this additive and subtractive process, Biagini discovers and creates new connections—real and imaginative—among fragmented images, patterns and abstractions. Complex and compelling, her new pieces evoke a sense of curiosity and mystery about the workings of the natural world and its evolving relationship to the Anthropocene era in which we currently live.
