#streamingreflections

“streaming rEflections” — two solo art exhibitions that brings two very different artists together for a unique meditative presentation of nature, technology, and digital art using both traditional and abstract imagery. The artists, BERT LEVEILLE and JEANE KAT McGRAIL, each in their particular art process and approach strive to deliver an art experience exploring the streaming of sensory and mental rEflections of our thoughts and experiences, of both our interior and exterior worlds.

BERT LEVEILLE — While McGrail begins with nature, and leads us to a virtual reflective place, Leveille begins with abstraction and light, and gives us a reflective space to walk into. As she paints and gathers her materials, she connects to consciousness. Her installation in the vault integrates the viewer with reflections – theirs, others and light. The happenings in the vault will stream to a tv screen outside the vault reflecting inner spaces with outer spaces. Leveille’s desire is to give one a space for reflection and connection – a place where one can enter a stream of consciousness. The history and age of the building enhance the reflections of the past, present and future. The installation is the beginning — the journey into streaming consciousness, and what and how it reflects individually and/or universally is entirely up to the viewer.

JEANE KAT McGRAIL — exhibits individual artworks in series that are part of an environmentally-related project, The River Project: Origins, Movement, Confluence. Each series (Convergence Series, Reflections Series, and Artic Vortex Series) reflects the others.Referring to The River Project: Origins, Movement, Confluence, McGrail says: “just as the r iver moves, so the inquiry changes—unveiling the past, and directing the future.”On the surface, her Reflections Series appears to be reflections on water in spring, summer, fall, and the edges of winter. The view from across the water, is reminiscent of the inaccessible island Horaijima (Island of Everlasting Happiness) in Japanese culture. Delving more deeply, viewers discover reflections within reflections. In a surreal manner, we discover what is real, what appears real, and what is reflective of reality.The entire body of work relates to, reflects on, and sometimes solemnly anticipates coming events. McGrail’s journey and printmaking process take her seasonally into nature—experiencing the climate, the bears and bugs—where she documents, explores, and reflects.The viewer then adds another layer of reflection, and the meaning of the artwork continues to stream—which the artist envisions as seasonally renewing, healing, and hopeful.
