Staccato is a visually striking exhibition in contrasting black and white featuring four artists who use thousands of distinctive marks to create arresting works. The three artists in the show utilize an unorthodox approach to “drawing.” Rather than using extended lines or broad strokes and curves, their technique is more physically demanding with minute mark-making to create the imagery. With their own take on the use of “line,” the movement is more disciplined, the energy abbreviated and repetitive instead of the extended push/pull of the pencil and pen. The artists embrace the challenge of the process and shift the viewer’s perspective of scale with their visually complex work.

Featuring Artists: Jennifer Celio, Haikuhie Tataryan, Christine Weir, Julia Westerbeke
