Renz, Taylor, Pardue at Boswell-Mourot

Posted By on Tue, Mar 15, 2011 at 12:11 PM

An exhibit of work by mixed media artists Lisa Renz and Evan Pardue and ceramicist Winston Taylor opened Saturday at Boswell-Mourot Fine Art, 5815 Kavanaugh Blvd. You would have read about it here Friday had we hit the "publish" button.

The gallery's press release:

Boswell Mourot Fine Art continues to bring outstanding modern art to Little Rock with an open reception for Mixed media artist Lisa Renz, post industrial ceramic vessels by Winston Taylor and mixed media on paper and canvas by artist Evan Pardue. The opening reception is 6 to 9 pm Saturday March 12, 2011 and is open to the public. The show will hang from March 12 through April 2.

*Artist Liza Renz best describes her newest body of work with the following poetic words.
Stars marked next steps
Over watered trails
Tick-marked, time-tracked,
Obsession flooded.
The weight of days,
Personal histories,
Miscommuning words,
Meant or careless,
Needle into paths,
Wait for bare feet.
On a graceful day,
I’ll hear you clear.
Embedded traps will
Trip-snap-snarl shut,
Grinding greedy teeth
Over the air.

*Artist Evan Pardue new works titled “The Freshmen Fifteen”, serves as a reflection on his freshmen experience and the idea of going away to college. His goal is to create space that question themselves on the inside, as a freshmen would do during this time of rebellion and indulgence. Through each of the works, Evan wants to focus on the physicality of paint. In all the paintings, the way each is painted is directly linked to the message and emotion of the work.

*Ceramic artist Winston Taylor discovered his love for working in clay in the early 70’s as a student. “It was more as if it touched me and the potential has entranced me since.” Winston proclaims. Throughout his studies Winston found out what clay does naturally and the importance of dedication and patience and that art is a catalyst for all cultures.
Winston uses a variety of techniques to create his art form, such as raku, saggar and pit firing and stone polishing earthenware clay for horsehair fired pieces or black ware. He often combines wheel thrown vessels with hand built tops influenced by mechanical, architectural, or geometric forms. Enjoyment is what his work it to him and he hope is to the viewer as well.
