We visited two galleries a few weeks ago, Glavekosen as well as the Paige Bond Gallery. I really felt drawn to some of the work at the first gallery, Glavekosen, by Steve Hedburg. His works really made me think about the use of color and of line. They made me think about how abstract work can be about direct settings and places. I really loved how rich and comforting/ exciting the colors he uses are. You really get a sense of energy and it makes me wonder if he always was drawn to painting like this, or if it emerged as he experimented. The compostition and depth shown in many of his pieces really shows the history of the piece. I didn't really enjoy the works at the paige bond gallery. It wasn't really my thing. I can still find value in part of the pieces, the corners and segments of texture and energy. The scale was interesting and it made me wonder about why the artist choose such a large scale. Once again I loved the color used by Charlotte Culot, however it didn't inspire me as much. I did like some of her smaller compositions and it makes me wonder which the artist preferences vs what most other people preference.
