Show Highlights
...of Warp and Weft

June 9 - July 21, 2018

Davis Gallery is proud to announce "...of Warp and Weft" an exhibition featuring the work of Ausitn based artists Caprice Pierucci and Charles Heppner. Despite the vastly different mediums of Caprice's elegant carved wood sculptures and Charles' photographs of delicate cheesecloth there is an open dialog of harmony, form and composition.

This page is only a sample of the work in this exhibition. Please contact the gallery for information on other work, and for information on specific pieces.


 

Caprice Pierucci

Caprice Peirucci draws much of her inspiration from her mother, a fiber artist of the late sixties and seventies.  Sinuous repetition, texture, progressive rhythms and linear abstractions surrounded her as a child.  The layers and undulating rhythms in the sculptural forms speak of mortality and the huge expanses of time that lead to one particular moment of beauty.


 


Charles Heppner

Charles Heppner's Sacred Fabric work comes out of his belief in the sanctity of the cosmos.  He was originally inspired by the writings of Cardinal Bernadin's where he described the 'seamless garment' metaphor to illustrate the 'consistent ethic of life' he advocated.  Meaning, he believed that there exist a common thread weaving all social justice issues because of the sanctity of a human life. Heppner's work extends this metaphor by using cheesecloth to represent his belief in the connectedness and interdependence of all things.
