Mary S. and David C. Corbin Foundation Gallery
June 1, 2023 - May 12, 2024
Two Ohio artists will soon transform a Museum gallery into an immersive, colorful, sensory experience. Natalie Lanese and Andrea Myers are teaming up for this endeavor, each harnessing their dramatic use of color and scale to turn ordinary walls and floors into an unforgettable environment for visitors to enjoy. While Myers typically works in fabric and Lanese in paint, they’ll combine techniques and materials in this exhibition.
United by bold color and pattern, the installation promises to be a feast for the eyes. In discussing her work, Myers describes how “zigzags of fabric brushstrokes pulse on and off the wall, building a soft geometry, transcending the original form and function of the fabric. The density of patterning stretches across surfaces, suggesting expansive views of imagined waterways, skyscapes, erosions, striations, or something and somewhere in between.”
