Village Studios and Gallery in Greenville, SC, Features Works by Erin Jones and Katherine Duncan Aimone
Village Studios and Gallery located in the Pendleton Arts District of Greenville, SC, will present the exhibit, Body Language, featuring works by Erin Jones, a Greenville ceramicist, and Katherine Duncan Aimone, a painter who lives in Asheville, NC. The exhibit will be on view from Oct. 1 - 30, 2010.
Erin Jones is the niece
of Katherine Aimone, and the two have paired up to create an installation
of large-scale paintings and sculptural ceramics.
Both artists work abstractly and share the common theme of using movement to guide their work. "I begin with a large, blank piece of heavy paper on the wall that is almost as large as me. I work within that space, generating marks without thinking, and then I begin to find patterns and shapes, rhythms, and movements that appeal to me. It's very freeing work. Keeping the work in flux and putting my mind on hold is a goal throughout the process as I edit and complete the painting," says Aimone.
Jones notes about her work in sculptural ceramics: "For me, creating is a very intuitive, in-the-flow process, as I respond bodily to the clay and other forces, such as gravity and time. My work is very action/reaction. That's not to say that I don't think and plan, I do... but that's usually not what happens once I'm inside the studio. There's a rhythm, a dance, as I work. I find that working on a larger scale contributes to this process."
