Location: Turchin Center Lecture Hall
Signe Stuart’s beautiful exhibition, Flux, will close June 3, 2023.

Beginning in the early 1960s, Signe Stuart’s professional career has now spanned more than sixty-five years. Her approach to art making has always relied on experimentation and rule breaking. Using the materials and form of painting, she breaks away from the standard rectangle and concepts of framing. Her visual vocabulary emphasizes line: single lines emerging from material; low relief line patterns forming flux fields and networks of relationships.

About the Artist
Flux alludes to natural and manmade networks from rivers, neural pathways and quantum fields to systems of transportation and communications, everything interconnected and in flux. My visual vocabulary emphasizes line: single lines emerging from material; low relief line patterns forming flux fields and networks of relationships. Recent cut paper works, drawing/sculpture hybrids, generally consist of 2 or more overlapping panels hung away from the wall to create shadows. The cut paper works have evolved into achromatic works, unintentionally referencing the unified field theory of everything. Light is an auxiliary medium, creating subtle and changing thresholds between the visible and invisible.
