Evelyn Twitchell: On the River
November 20 – December 16, 2015
Front Window Gallery is pleased to present On the River, an exhibition of three works by Evelyn Twitchell that evoke the forms and forces of the natural world. Twitchell’s oil paintings and clay relief sculpture are engaging and idiosyncratic riddles, products of a Thoreau-ean attempt to give form to elusive, skittering, peripheral impressions of natural forces and rhythms like growth and flight. Animal, vegetable, and mineral are all drawn from nature, essences tapped at the source and distilled into metaphors. These works are a reconstruction after the experience, not a one-to-one response, and exist in a time and space guided entirely by their own very particular rules.
