High Woods Assemblage
MIXED MEDIA WORKS by JACINTA BUNNELL
ON DISPLAY NOW
102 Partition Street, Saugerties, NY
In May of this year, Jacinta Bunnell traveled to the Bay of Fundy with her friend Deborah Degraffenreid for an art retreat, packing whatever art supplies Jacinta could fit in her carry-on. Surrounded by the quiet beauty of Nova Scotia, Jacinta holed up for a week doing something she had never done before: focused on art making as a job for 8-10 hours a day. The work in this exhibition is inspired by the exquisiteness and serenity of a week spent in a humble cabin overlooking one of the natural wonders of North America, a unique setting that has one of the highest tidal ranges in the world, a place you can find amethyst on the beach and see the Northern Lights. This new series of mixed media works based on found ephemera includes bank statements and hand-written notes that give you clues to Saugerties' past, made contemporary by a touch of paint, ink or found images layered atop.
