ART WORK BY: MADHUBANTI CHOWDHURY

ARTHOP JUNE 6TH 5PM-8PM

"To me, art is as natural as breathing. It’s a huge part of my life; whether consuming it in galleries, on websites, discussing with others, experiencing through the power of social media, or creating it for myself. It’s part of the very nature of my whole being, as a person. From the moment I started drawing as a child, it helped me express how I felt about the world around me, or ideas I couldn’t quite articulate.
I am a local artist in Fresno, California. I started my painting journey with traditional Asian Indian pieces in watercolor. I transitioned from watercolor to acrylic six years ago. All my works are in acrylic. I draw inspiration for my artwork from a variety of sources: anything that allows me to think about how culture comes together. I'm always on the lookout – I observe people in the street; I watch films, I read, I think about the conversations that I have and much more. I have a lot of conversation with other people about my work and the works of others. I observe my surroundings acutely and it is through art that I can effectively communicate the world of my feelings and the creativity that only exists within my mind. My artwork celebrates or treasures the local, the small-scale, the eccentric, and the ordinary parts of the human experience. My artwork captures the human experience in abstract form."

Artist Statement

 

My work is not only about the product, but about the process to reach that end. The differences that occur between one completed piece and another are a result of constant decision making. I deal with materials as honestly as possible, seeking to develop cohesive surfaces.

 

Making a painting starts with a trip to the lumber yard to buy wood, glue, screws, nails and staples for the stretcher bars which I make to stretch the canvas onto. A table saw is used to cut the wood. Canvas is ordered and delivered to the house. Next I cut, stretch and prime the canvas. I mention these steps to show the nuts and bolts of art making. My work reflects an interest in finding color relationships which take shape by moving paint around on the canvas. The visual information is very often a surprise and mistakes can be used to further push toward the discovery of new ways to make a picture

 

My primary goal is to make art that is both closed and open. The art is closed when the surface seems complete. It remains open because it doesn’t necessarily deal with representational imagery. It is its own image, its own idea, and there are questions that haven’t been answered. The end result of my art making is that I have a fragment of reality. It is a piece of something I can hold on to.

Dreams and Fictions: Paintings by Quinn Bowman & Julia Woli Scott
Julia Woli Scott is a contemporary artist known for her atmospheric and delicately layered paintings. Her gestural depictions of human, plant &animal forms inhabit dream-like abstracted landscapes of metaphoric terrain. 
Quinn Bowman works with a continually expanding vocabulary of personal symbology that suggests dreams, experiences, and a strained relationship with the human ego. Often simplified and abstracted, the shapes and forms seen within his drawings and paintings are as unassuming as they are significant.
The intersection of their work is found in the sublime; a fascination with that which only exists in dreams & fictions. 
At the invitation of Clay Hand Studios, they have created a new body of work that will be on display for the month of June.
