The Significance of Detail features the artwork of six artists, Patricia Fabricant, Jeanne Heifetz, Jane Masters, Jessica Rosner, Lynda Schlosberg, and myself, Carleen Zimbalatti, who interlace detailed elements into mesmerizing complex artworks. Their finely wrought, intricate pictures are exquisitely rendered while the labor-intensive quality in each of the artists’ work seduces the viewer into an inner world that is both tranquil and multidimensional.
These deliberately planned compositions are characteristic of forms evocative of feeling. The details in the each of the artists’ compositions maintain a balance between the tangible and a seemingly infinite space. Inch by inch, through skill and craftsmanship, the significance of detail emerges out of basic elements into a complex form[s].
This exhibition gives weight to the significance of detail and to the qualities of connection that are illuminated in each of the artists’ meticulous mark making vocabulary and process. The sum of the parts, a metaphor, a language, deconstructs our stimulating and distracting world, conveying a meditative quality toward transcendence through the quiet strength embodied in each of the artist’s work featured in this exhibition.
