Artist Talk with Conny Goelz Schmitt and Domenica Brockman
June 3 @ 2:00 pm
Join us to learn more about the process, practice and inspiration behind the works of Conny Goelz Schmitt and Domenica Brockman featured in Intersection of Color.
This is the also the final day to see Intersection of Color at Yellow Studio.
Intersection of Color features paintings by Domenica Brockman and sculptures and collages by Conny Goelz Schmitt. Geometry, with attention to balance and dimensionality, guides the eye through meditative and joyful arrangements of color and form.
I draw inspiration from the natural world: shafts of sunlight, rainbows, kaleidoscopes, light refractions and reflections. I look at the effects of light on clouds in sunsets and the little rainbows that appear in gasoline spills on asphalt, or in soap bubbles. I am also attracted to the logic of geometry. Through the informal study of geometry, I aim to find that certain balance and “rightness” that can be found in nature. Created to lift spirits and brighten the day during challenging times, my hope is that these works bring feelings of joy and hope.
Conny Goelz Schmitt
Through geometric collages and sculptures built from vintage book parts I tell stories utilizing every part of the book except text. I play with deconstruction, reconstruction and changing dimensionality, treating the book as a time machine transporting me back to the past and into the future. Having been immersed in three very different cultures, elements of each of them are present in my projects. I am influenced by the German attention to detail, the retro color palette of Taiwan in the 1980’s and the experimental, pioneering spirit of America. Although my work may seem planned and calculated, it evolves organically within a rule-based system. This process conveys a world of adventure and surprise, providing the freedom to explore. A pursuit for balance and harmony becomes a meditation and ritual.
