Expanding Abstraction: New England Women Painters from 1950 to the Present
I am delighted that my piece, Shell Triptych, monoprint and relief carving on wood, 1993, will be on view in this exhibit at the DeCordova Museum in Lincoln, MA this spring in the exhibition Expanding Abstraction.
This exhibition presents a vital yet lesser-known history of abstract painting in New England by showcasing the work of women painters with strong connections to the region. Despite their relative exclusion from mainstream and male-dominated conversations on postwar abstraction, these artists have made significant contributions to the field. Spanning from the 1950s to the present, the works on view in the exhibition expand traditions of abstract painting and testify to the artists’ unwavering productivity and creative innovation.

Vis a Vis: Adria Arch and Anne Krinsky
Vis a Vis: Adria Arch and Anne Krinsky, an exhibition of paintings and works on paper by Adria Arch and Anne Krinsky, will be on view at Soprafina Gallery in Boston from April 1 to 30, 2016. The show features works informed by the Indian folk traditions the artists encountered during residencies at the Sanskriti Foundation in Delhi in 2014. Soprafina Gallery is located at 55 Thayer Street, Boston 02118. Gallery hours are Wednesday through Saturday from 11:00 am to 5:30 pm. Tel: 617.728.0770 Web: www.soprafina.com
In January 2014, Adria Arch and Anne Krinsky were International Artists-in-Residence at the Sanskriti Foundation in Delhi, an educational center dedicated to the preservation and understanding of folk art traditions of India. While in Delhi and during travels in Rajasthan, Arch and Krinsky explored aspects of traditional Indian textiles, papermaking, puppetry and dance. The works to be exhibited at Soprafina grew out of their visual research -- a journey that took both artists to new places in their individual practices.
The ornate and striking leather shadow puppets depicting characters from Hindu mythology provide inspiration for Arch’s work. Beginning with acrylic paint poured onto Mylar, a surface not unlike the translucent parchment used to make the puppets, she cuts around the most evocative shapes and then adheres them to paper. From that point, the paint spills begin to suggest a narrative that Arch enhances with flat shapes of high key color or other design elements drawn from her observations of India.
The colors, patterns and techniques of traditional textiles, particularly Phulkari embroideries from the Punjab, are a starting point for Krinsky’s India-inspired works. The diagonal grids, diamond patterns and brilliant marigolds and reds that characterize these textiles animate her paintings on Khadi papers and on panel. Interested both in the geometric regularity of repeated pattern and in its disruption, Krinsky uses acrylic molding pastes, pumice gels and absorbent grounds to create weathered surfaces over which networks of floating lines detour in unanticipated directions.
