TAG Gallery presents three new exhibitions: Carole Garland’s “Streaming Color,” Isabelle Hope Grahm’s “My Color Garden” and Tom Wheeler’s “Painted Light in Western Landscapes. All three are on display from May 15 to June 9.
In “Streaming Color,” Garland paints in watercolor en plein air as a form of meditation and escape. She often drives to the local Santa Monica Mountains, Malibu Creek, and Solstice and Topanga canyons to find solace.
Inspired by nature, Garland’s nontraditional, abstracted landscapes take their cue from the watercolors, in which she explores mark making, color and form.
Grahm’s exhibition speaks from an almost ethereal or aerial view depicting civilizations from a great distance. “My Color Garden” shows human beings simultaneously through a macrocosm as well as a microcosm. The work comprised of a multiplicity of separate parts, comes together as a whole when seen properly. These paintings provide a lens showing people, culture, city life patterns, forming and shaping autonomous compartments, businesses and social juxtapositions.
Finally, Wheeler’s newest work in “Painted Light in Western Landscapes” is a continuation of years of long-exposure light-painting experimentation to produce striking photographic imagery in vast western landscapes. His work is crafted to combine a sense of aesthetic beauty with elements of abstract expressionism and minimalism as a representation of man’s correlation to nature.
All images in “Painted Light in Western Landscapes” were created at the time of exposure and are hand-painted, long-exposure images using light-tools such as flashlights and other objects that illuminate his subjects and landscapes.
