Maryland artist Nina Chung Dwyer will be featured in a show at The Artists Gallery in Frederick during September 2004. Ms Dwyer received her MFA in Painting from George Washington University in 2002 and her work has been seen frequently in galleries in Maryland and Washington DC. Several of the works depict complex nests. These works explore the placement of an organic object in an artificial environment and the search for a balance between the two.
Another group of paintings – the "Content" series – uses pattern to create tempo, suggesting repetition in domestication and the search for a more passionate life that underlies the commonplace one.
The third and most recent group of paintings deals with the movement of light on water surfaces and the constant changes that result in contrast, shape and color. These works seek to analyze and redefine these changes and the visual sensation that results from them.
All of the works – whether drawings, watercolors, or oils – have a common goal: looking for abstraction through realism.
The opening reception for the show will be held on the evening of Saturday, September 4, 2004. On this "First Saturday" of the month, Frederick holds a "Gallery Walk" during which the town welcomes gallery viewers with music and food.
