June Two Street Gallery is presents Penny Wakefield with her mixed media show featuring fish skins.
Artist statement:
I have experimented and explored over the years a variety of textile mediums but find that my favorite exploration has been in mixed media in the use of unusual materials, such as pig gut and fish skin. I became interested in fish skin in 1985-86 and gut in 1987. I mainly work with fish skin, cleaning and drying the skin to a parchment, with a transparent quality that can be used as fabric, using the light and dark values to create shapes, forms and depth in my abstract landscapes. I dye and freeze dry the skins in the winter to get additional color values.
Scaling Down will open June First Friday 5-8pm. The show will remain in the Gallery the month of June
