New Art Exhibition at Local 123

Local 123 presents, “Surface: Pattern :: Pattern: Surface,” an exhibition of works by Hadley Williams and Talulah Terryll, guest curated by Peter Hayes.

July 13, 2011 - PRLog -- On display from July 11 to August 11 at Local 123. Opening reception Friday, July 15, from 7-9 PM at the Cafe, 2049 San Pablo Ave, Berkeley, Ca.

Guest curator Peter Hayes organizes a show around the rich lines of resonance between Hadley Williams and Tallulah Terryll's work. Attention concentrates on their work's connection to a framework of a pattern, to a repetition of marks applied to a surface. In every piece, the patterns are interrupted - sometimes subtly, sometimes forcefully - by the nuances of each artist's material, hand, and vision. The result is a joint collection that inhabits the space between mechanism and gesture, control and flexibility, stencil and spontaneity.

Affecting also the space between art and viewer, the pieces animate their surrounding area -- above and below, left and right -- with the way they balance rhythm and chaos. Terryll creates her patterns out of paint applied through hand-made stencils in multi-layered designs: what emerges is a vibrational character that lifts pattern off of surface. Williams endows her work with an actual and relentless dimensionality by adhering a range of materials (from bubble wrap to correction tape) to her surfaces. Their approaches to surface and pattern reflect against each other, completing the analogy - the surface is to the pattern as the pattern is to the surface.

After receiving her B.F.A. in 2003 and spending 2 years in Japan, Terryll is currently based in Oakland, California. For more information, see www.tallulahterryll.com. Williams works out of her immaculate studio in Berkeley, CA, and is currently enrolled in the MFA program at John F. Kennedy University, which she will complete in December 2011.
