Dropping In: Recent Work by Tom Lieber
Dividing his time between Kaua‘i and Los Angeles, Tom Lieber continues to draw on a strong V shape as the central image in his work. The idea of dropping, as into deeper meditation, into a wave, into a creative vision, is a strong force in Lieber’s paintings, which use gestural strokes and many layers.
Drawing a Bead: Recent Sculpture by George Woollard
“Drawing a bead” means to take aim, and Woollard’s target is sculpture. “Sculptures are composed, they are put together one step at a time like any other art form. It is composition that interests me. I look at the materials and try to discern what they can offer with the least amount of alteration. I want the work to be 50 percent material based and 50 percent artist based. Together, we compose the work,” says the O‘ahu artist.
