Three Views: Contemporary work by Charles Parson, Collin Parson and Devon Parson
This exhibit celebrates the similarities and differences of two family generations of creativity. With the common bonds of time and place, their separate visual vocabularies speak to the 21st century's experience of living in the Western United States. The distinctions of views of light and shadow, massive scale and delicateness, expansive space and airy atmosphere address the connections of landscapes and passages of time.
The Parsons share the use of geometric forms, usage of everyday architectural materials and techniques, technology, and individual manipulations and mark-making. This exhibit acknowledges essayist Wendell Berry's projection of the passing on of traditions, while embracing each generation's distinctive perceptions and innovations.
The resulting experience of this exhibit is to enrich the viewers' looking and thinking, specifically of the contemporary western experience we all share. The artists aspire to present contemplative moments of the universal themes represented by sunrise and sunsets; earth's surfaces and forms; the West's spaces and the individual's sense of place in it.
