Translations Gallery in Denver present two exhibitions in August 2009 - Mark Bowles: California Landscapes and Rachel Darnell: Paintings on Woven Canvas. As art dealers Translations Gallery represents a refreshing collection of original contemporary fine art. With local, national, and international emerging and established artists who work in mixed media, painting, sculpture, fine art furniture, and tapestry, Translations Gallery offers a diverse range of contemporary styles to enhance the interior design of your home or office. Translations Gallery promotes their artists with a Gallery Portfolio at absolutearts.com.
Rachel Darnell's paintings on woven canvas emphasize the interconnectedness and interdependence of all things, combining the immediacy and expressiveness of painting with the primitive structure of weaving. Her travels into some of the most ancient cities of the world inspire her use of gold and silver leafing, like that which has been used to convey divinity. In her work, she attempts to revive ancient, spiritual themes and find expression for them in our modern world.
Mark Bowles' abstract Western landscapes are individual statements that have emerged from a rich tradition of California landscape painting. The large scale results in a vast visual picture plane with bold areas of color intermingled with subtle painterly areas. The reward for the viewer is resonating landscapes whose color and expressive brushwork evoke a vibrant sense of place.
