Transcendence – Elizabeth Gregory-Gruen at Ivy Brown Gallery

Monday, September 24th, 2018

Ivy Brown Gallery is pleased to present Transcendence – Elizabeth Gregory-Gruen. The artist’s cutwork series is an evolving examination of emotion experienced through the inspired meeting of blade and paper. Beginning with the featureless plane of a blank paper canvas and a surgeon’s scalpel, Gregory-Gruen finds direction spontaneously, or as she says, “I cut from the gut.”

Though seemingly perfect and symmetrical at first glance, the original images are cut with no guide, defined by the authentic energy of the free hand cutting. The reverse-relief effect is achieved by first cutting what will become the top layer of paper, with each subsequent sheet layered and cut individually. About her process, Gregory-Gruen says, “It is visceral. A meditation. Imperfection is perfection.”

Ivy Brown Gallery presents Transcendence by artist Elizabeth Gregory-Gruen

Sunday, September 9th, 2018

Ivy Brown Gallery is pleased to present Transcendence a new series to open the imagination and provide an intermission from the ordeals of life. This series combines the spontaneous nature of Elizabeth Gregory-Gruen’s free hand Cut Work technique with the unique color blends of master silkscreen artist Gary Lichtenstein. The cut work and silkscreen processes share a relationship of unconscious energy resulting in unexpected visual dynamic.

Elizabeth Gregory-Gruen’s Cut Work series is an evolving exploration of emotion and movement using free hand scalpel cut multilayered imagery. The layers make space for shadows to fall and move with the vibration of life where the imperfection is the perfection. There are no expectations, only discovery.

The image is determined in the top layer of paper. There are no guides or planned drawings. An adhesive is added under the top layer followed by another layer of paper, this layer is cut…the process continues creating multiple layers while folding in the color blend to accelerate the velocity of the image.

Opening Reception: Wednesday, September 12, 6-8

Artist Q&A: Tuesday, September 25, 6-8pm

Exhibition is from September 12th – October 17th.
