Sweet Elena’s Launches New Art Exhibition: Two Paper Cut Artist Display Work From August 25 – September 30
SAND CITY, CA -- Sweet Elena’s Bakery and Café located at465 D Olympia Avenue in Sand City is an artisan bakery, where everything is made from scratch, reminiscent of home country cooking, using fresh and local ingredients.
Today, Elena announced Sweet Elena’s upcoming exhibition will focus on works from Artist Kevin Miller and Emily Brown. The exhibition will showcase their asounding paper cut work! The artwork will also be shown during the West End Celebration.
Kevin Miller creates his images from a single sheet of paper by cutting them out with an exacto knife. He sparingly layers more paper to form backgrounds or provide contrast. At times humorous, at others sinister, Miller’s imaginative and often complex cut-paper vignettes offer glimpses of apparently ordinary life, whose mysterious stillness is full of possibilities.
Emily Brown creates large-scale black and white images on paper, often derived from a closely-observed piece of landscape, whether a water surface or tangle of branches. She uses traditional Asian techniques in a loose, contemporary style to explore the rythms and patterns of nature. The result is work that feels quiet & contemplative, sometimes minimal, sometimes overwhelmingly detailed.
Brown, a former Pew Fellow, has lectured and taught at both the University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Fine Arts and the Graduate Program of the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art. The exhibition coincides with her term on the faculty at the Haystack Mountain School of Craft. Isalos featured her work in the gallery’s first one-artist show, in 2003.
