CJ Hurley has spent the better part of this year isolated in his studio creating new mixed media paintings supported, in part, by a Project Grant from the Regional Arts and Culture Council. The concept of balance is the primary theme CJ is exploring in this work. Many spiritual traditions speak of balance as the underlying principle of the universe. CJ believes that a lack of balance results in disharmony and destructiveness. He states, “The restoration of balance in both society and nature is an important idea for artistic exploration”. He has been working on the development of his artistic skills by investigating the relationship of 2 & 3 dimensional designs, combining sculpture, painting, & technical craft to create works of art that have the luminosity of cellular enameling & stained glass. He has sought to create highly unified works of art that combine very refined painting with sculpting mediums & found objects like glass, metal, wood, twine and things from nature. Opening Reception: First Friday, December 6th, 5pm-8pm On exhibit through January 3rd
