An Interrelation of Works by Christi Jay & Cheryl Louise Humphreys. Opening reception this Friday September 6th, from 7-10 PM at the POP Gallery in Culver City.

Through the exploration of surrendering control to their mediums, Christi Jay & Cheryl Louise Humphreys come together as a single force for Bring Into Being. Starting with elemental materials and the qualities they inherently possess, both artists respond to them with a disciplined process. It is in this tension of fixed versus impulse, restrictive versus fluid, where flaws give rise to virtues. Just as everything in the natural world does, their works and process have both yin and yang aspects, for instance shadow cannot exist without light, surrender cannot exist without control. Using water, air, earth – running them through the creative fire in order to bring their visions into being.

Christi’s work is inspired by shapes inherently formed in our minds and in the greater cosmos. A major focus of her work is in the peculiarities of the natural world, this focus is combined with sacred geometry and rituals in an attempt to find an instinctive balance of raw and refined. The components used are mostly repurposed or salvaged, allowing previously unwanted objects to live a new life.

Cheryl’s work seeks to draw the viewer in close, begging an intimate interaction, as if being read like a book. Through a contrast of organically made marks and meticulous printmaking techniques, she forms compositions, which transcend the two-dimensional. Inspired, at a young age, by her mother’s mark making as a hands-on interior designer, her work has a deep-rooted sensitivity to geometry and space.

Bring Into Being will be up at the POPgallery September 6 through October 11, 2013.
