Heather Wilcoxon’s At Sea – ICA

Black/ White – oil on paper mounted canvas

At Sea is a stunning exhibition of Heather Wilcoxon‘s boat paintings at the San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art in until September 10, 2017. These powerful images of the skeletal structures of boats seem to be seem to be dematerializing as you gaze at them, transcending their former life and hover in a transitional, almost spiritual state.

In her artist statement Heather Wilcoxon says in part,”I felt that the boat form could be explored on many levels: the metaphor of decay, my dealings with cancer……the physical beauty that surrounds me is ever changing – the tide comes in, the tide goes out.

As a Maritimer in love with old rotting boats and the history they carry, I can say I was thoroughly moved by this work!

Detritus – ICA

Just some of the fabulous detritus artists leave in the wake of their art making on exhibit at the Institute of Contemporary Art in San Jose through to September! There is something very special about this show, it speaks to the labor, the hours and the dedication to the artistic process!  Have you looked around your studio for the art you didn’t realize you were making?
