"Splice" at the Constance Lavino Bell Gallery

Below are some installation photos of my current exhibition Splice at the Constance Lavino Bell Gallery at the Ethel Walker School.

Splice

This show includes two related installations and several works on paper that repeat the double helix form. Together the works create a bridge between genetic engineering, textile traditions, and abstract art. Spreading across a corner, the installation appears viral and organic. Upon closer inspection, a viewer can see that the paper forms have been delicately woven together, mimicking the intricate perforations of lace. Textiles, like DNA, are often rooted in patterns. The connection between the two elements shows that our desires to see and create patterns originates in our genetic makeup.

The show is on view through November and there will be a public reception at the end of September.

Maureen Drennan's 'Highway to the Sun' series on the Art21 magazine

Added on by Jacquelyn Gleisner.
I would love for a person to look at one of my photos and be reminded of something else.
— Maureen Drennan

Art21 Magazine - "Inspired by a True Story"

Read my article about Maureen Drennan's series 'Highway to the Sun' on the Art21 magazine here. This series of photographs was inspired by the epic road trip of four friends—one of whom was Drennan's stepfather—departing from Hanover, New Hampshire, on a five-thousand-mile trip to Alaska.

The Folds of the Cloak

The Folds of the Cloak, the title of my current installation at the Sharon Arts Center, references the last line of the poem “Of the Surface of Things” by Wallace Stevens. I read this poem aloud to my students on the first day of classes last fall, and throughout the year I collected their discarded drawings and paintings to re-use. Viewers can see glimpses of color wheels and other exercises repurposed into pyramid forms.

The title also alludes to paper and textiles, two important materials for my practice as an artist. Paper, an ecological and malleable form, represents flexibility and durability. Textiles are another important source for me, and I regularly reference patterns as well as the cultural importance of fabric, embroidery, and other handicrafts. All the paper and cardboard used in this installation are found or recycled from my previous works or former students, creating a textural map of color, patterns, and time.
