The sixth iteration of CMCA’s Counterpoint exhibition series brings together the work of artists Jenny Brillhart (Stonington, ME) and Sara Stites (Thomaston, ME and Miami, FL).
The notion of light moving over time offers a conceptual approach to Stites and Brillhart’s intuitive ways of working and individual narratives. Documenting shadow movement through paint, material, and photography, the artists advocate connections of process, studio, and specificity of place. Their use of found and made objects as sculpture as well as subject for photography and paintings link their work and ground their process. Light and time serve as both content and concept. This idea provides an open-ended conduit of conversation between the artists. The exhibition offers an argument for a contemplative practice working towards an age-old search for meaning within contemporary parameters.
