Waste Knot features dimensional work by local art group, CURRENTS.
Known for using common materials in unusual ways, and often repurposing something about to be tossed, these six artists show their work throughout the Bay Area in exhibits, galleries and in corporate and private collections. During monthly meetings they encourage each others’ art development by provoking, inspiring, confronting and sharing ideas. Their approaches to developing unexpected types of art fit right in with pariSoma’s entrepreneurial community, by generating creative and sustainable ways of working. Each artist uses different materials, from such common items as newspapers, yarn, thread, sand, paper, and wire, to found items, like an old rusted radiator,garden hose, steel pipes, or bent metal. Most materials are being given a second life, as art.
Waste Knot shows the diversity of ideas by each artist, coming from central themes of form, line and textures that intersect, meander and interweave into a whole unit. The work tends to be complex with a sense of mystery and novelty. This show is likely to intrigue you, put a smile on your face, and leave you yearning to see more.
Artist members: Ventana Amico, Gerry Beers, Marty Jonas, Marcia Kent, Ursula Pederson, and Judith Samborski
