Beaming Up above—remember Star Trek and the myriad worlds that the crew landed on and explored? They transformed into small particles to beam down or up. Perhaps this is one of the worlds they explored.
Bend artist, Adell Shetterly, has followed her own artistic path as defined in ink. Her July show at Tumalo Art Co. P3 Press | Pull | Print, opening July 1, from 3-7pm during the Old Mill District First Friday Gallery Walk, features original hand-pulled prints which investigates the processes and various techniques in print.
She presents new work, rich and diverse in wealth of marks, color, layers and lines drawing on imagery that ranges in style from abstract to deconstructed landscapes, inspired by nature, memories and moments of daily life.
Using her own press, every image Adell inks on a plate is pulled by hand. The impression is transferred from the plate to paper creating a unique image. As she works Adell unlocks her imagination to the possibilities in print questioning, “what would happen IF?”
For Entwined, the past and the present are interwoven revealing the stories of a lifetime. To tell this story Adell used glue to make the circles that the dried and became a relief when run through the press.
Adell used hot glue stencils for Quantum Entanglement, playing with abstract design and shapes. Initially printing the plate with light gray on cream paper she placed the stencils first, then inked plastic wrap and ran it through the press.
Quantum Entanglement is the physical phenomenon that occurs when a group of particles are generated, interact, or share spatial proximity in a way such that the quantum state of each particle of the group cannot be described independently of the state of the others. “This piece kept pulling me in, and when the title emerged it all came together.”
Magnetic field lines near sunspots often tangle, cross, and reorganize. This can cause a sudden explosion of energy. “I played off this idea to create a landscape strongly influenced by the sun.”
Come enjoy all of the art in the show—see you Friday, July 1st and throughout the month.
