In conjunction with Building Upon The Past, Page Bond Gallery is pleased to present Spheres of Influence, a selection of recent work by Mira Hecht.
Mira Hecht’s “Close to Home” series is another step in her exploration of the formal, emotional, and spiritual properties of the circle. Her intuitive, mandala-like compositions, reminiscent of light refracted through water droplets, have gained much critical acclaim. They are simultaneously dynamic and quiet, strengthened by tensions between surface and depth, and positive and negative space. “The circle is a vast and mysterious form filled with potential. Inspired by my own contemplative practice and glimpses of perfection within the mind’s eye, each painting is meant to be a small gesture of exaltation, pointing to joy, connection and wholeness,” Hecht says. Her canvases have a meditative quality that rewards extended viewing.
An opening reception for the artists [took] place at the Page Bond Gallery on Friday, March 1, from 7:00 to 9:00 pm. The exhibition will remain on view through April 1, 2013.
The Page Bond Gallery, located at 1635 West Main Street, exhibits contemporary art in a wide variety of media and disciplines including painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture and ceramics.
