Whispers and Echoes at the Hillsborough Gallery of Arts

EntSun News/10768560
The Hillsborough Gallery of Arts begins its Featured Artists series this year with new work by Arianna Bara, Eduardo Lapetina, and Michael Salemi: a jeweler, a painter, and a woodturner.

HILLSBOROUGH, N.C. - March 12, 2019 - EntSun -- Woodturner, Michael Salemi, writes of his new work: "Whispers and echoes—small sounds with reverberations that are heard again and again. This is an apt metaphor for my recent work.  Of late, I am focusing on making subtle changes in form, color and material that I hope resonate throughout my work. In some work my echoes are literal—repeating patterns within a piece or throughout a group of pieces. In other pieces, the echoes are figurative as I attempt to incorporate design features that I have learned from others. Whispers are, of their nature, quiet. I like to think that my work quietly conveys a sense of balance and peace. I prefer understated decoration that whispers rather than shouts."

Eduardo Lapetina writes, "I want my spaces to be painted without intention, without conscious technique, without anything that might interfere with the connections I seek to create. I do not want to keep a tradition. I am not looking for beauty, but the viewer might find it in my art. My work is not about any particular theme or motif, it is about conveying the immaterial through materiality. My aim is to project energy, visual vibrations, light, voices, excitement, and enthusiasm--captured in a physical form that you can take home with you."

Working with sterling silver and stones, Arianna Bara describes the inspiration for her new work, "Some of my favorite designs are inspired by ancient art, by people we know little about whose lives were lived in rhythm with the seasons and who revered the earth as a sacred mother. They carved and painted figures, animals and other symbols into cave walls, standing stones and temples. They created grand large-scale carvings and small modest ones that have been discovered buried in hearths and grain bins. Much is unknown about these early peoples but the whispers and echoes of their lives fascinate me."
