The Adah Rose Gallery in Kensington, MD is pleased to present the two person show, In This Moment, featuring the works of artists Anne C. Smith and Christina Tenaglia. The show runs through June 4th, 2017.
Night holds a special fascination for Anne Smith. She combines the intense black of charcoal with delicate lines of graphite in her drawings inspired by memory and landscape. Her art is beautifully deliberate; a glimpse into another world. With elegant lines, Anne creates an awareness of spatial relationships. Her work suggests a vastness with the quietude and stillness of night. Hints of form or space inspire questions and observations about the visual language of minimalism and abstraction.
Christina Tenaglia’s sculptures are in a continual state of doing and undoing, arriving at a perfect moment of repose. Using mostly wood and paint, each sculpture is carefully constructed and inspires a playful exploration of its parts. They are fragments, passing thoughts, rigorous, but also full of wonder. Christina’s works on paper are simple gestures and expansive thoughts, suggestive of architecture and landscape. Using pen and ink and bits of collage, she creates compositions that are both abstract and recognizable, full of whimsical and curious details.
