Sharon Fishel / Jeffrey Smith
May 1, 2009 - June 14, 2009

Sharon Fishel and Jeffrey Smith are husband and wife who approach similar subject matter—primarily natural elements as leaves, flowers, and seed pods—through vastly different media and techniques. Sharon begins with extreme close-ups and creates richly layered abstract paintings with oil paint and glazes. Jeffrey assembles natural and man-made forms from digital images, photograms and advertisements and translates them into large-scale monochromatic paintings on canvas or paper.
