Rock, Trees and Trucks: Judith Heller Cassell and Suzanne Pretty will open June 18 and run through September 3, 2016 at Emporium Framing and Gallery in South Berwick, Maine. This collection of collagraphs, tapestry and multimedia works by Heller Cassell and Pretty deal with land and our impact.
Suzanne was originally from the Boston area before settling in New Hampshire after graduating from Massachusetts College of Art. She has exhibited internationally has won numerous awards and been included in multiple books.
The process of tapestry is very labor intensive with the image growing thread by thread. The ancient art of tapestry is a sharp contrast to the fast paced world of technology. For me tapestry provides a chance to step back, reinterpret images in a different context and refocus on the world around us in a new light. The multi media pieces allow me to combine and develop the images.
In the tapestry Lined Up and Ready, the trucks are lined up waiting fto head out. The power of these vehicles is waiting to be released. The bright colors take the images out of the everyday setting but the heavy equipment contains the incredible power when unleashed in the landscape.
