“Tur makes impressions of household objects, creating an imprint that is literal but somehow transcends reality. To see overlapping light switches is to acknowledge how much of life is lived through seemingly mundane and repetitive tasks.”

-Linda Hodges Gallery



Bryon: These works are beautiful in their clean presence and delicate patterns that reflect on everyday, menial habits. I love her choice of lines, with the repetition and the structures in which her imprints are exhibited.

Shift Gallery

Kara Mia Fenoglietto

Megan: On the left side of the gallery I am mesmerized by the large floral jacket and gown piece. The soft color and property of the fabric, combined with the addition of the dried flowers, gives me a beautiful vintage fantasy vibe. The size and volume of the jacket is a nice contrast to the lightness (physically and visually) of the material. It is really capturing and holding my attention in a way that most pieces do not. I also appreciate the combination of using text on the wall with the definition of wallflower, the texture and color of the pieces themselves, and the interesting texture of the bright stripes behind some of the pieces made from a bright colored tape. It is satisfying to have all of those elements for my eye to keep moving around the piece and being re-engaged with it.

Bryon: An ethereal aesthetic plays into these pieces the color pallet connects me to a cloudy day in late summer. As I entered the gallery my eyes were drawn to a gorgeous coat and gown, the construction is buoyant and soft and the silhouette is lovely. Against one of the walls were what looked like dresses being tightly pressed between two pieces of acrylic. I thought her cohesion was strong and her composition varied within the parameters of her vision and her clothing design is fashionable, well constructed and distinct ranging from everyday wear to formal evening. I love the play of the 2 meanings and how well these come across in the literal pressed to the metaphorical shy and quiet person A multi-faceted show from a multi-talented artist I look forward to seeing more of her work.

Megan: I enjoy seeing the long, floor to ceiling frosted glass strip panels that cover the front viewing window. Inside, there was a light background sound of birds chirping. In the center of the room, the artist was taking small geometric pieces of plastic and submerging them into a shallow pan of liquid. Then they were hung over our heads on a makeshift clothesline and the crystal pattern began to emerge. They will later be assembled into rock-like sculptures that will fill the gallery. She is explaining to me how this is a mini-residency for her and highlights the processes of artists, which are typically hidden from audiences, because the art appears in the gallery finished and curated in place. I like seeing the texture and cleanness of the pieces, which are void of any color, but I wish that there were more of the larger strips like I see in the front of the gallery. The natural light and extreme height is creating a beautiful, soft effect on my mood.

Bryon: When I entered the gallery I was drawn to the many pieces of clear shapes pinned above my head, upon closer inspection I could see ice-like patterns covering the surface of each one. To my left a woman stood behind a table dipping what looked like clear pieces of plastic into a tray of solution. She would carefully lift it out by the very tip and let the liquid drip away revealing beautiful, geometric patterns. I learned by talking to her that these small sheets will be used to construct a rock. We were privy to her process and it was hypnotic and intriguing. I can’t wait to visit again next month and see the end result.
