Paradigm Gallery + Studio presents works by Sarah Louise Davey and Nicomi Nix Turner

Two solo exhibitions that embody the elements of nature, struggle, beauty, and breath.

April 24, 2015 – June 6, 2015

"The Garden of No Distant Place" works by Sarah Louise Davey
Through the vessel of the figure and materiality of clay, I create sculptural objects and installations to evoke intuitive, visceral responses informed by our subjective notions of physical image and societal norms. I question my own experiences of these through the various personalities that emerge with each hybrid portrait, as they are often a mix of whimsical beauty and exaggerated macabre. Posture and pose illustrate the psychological scope of the feral female while their wide-eyed gazes portray an emotional duality that is constantly evolving within each beastly image. At the heart of these works is the eternal push and pull of the spirit. The two-headed beast, the twin within, living just beneath the skin, sharing the shell and breathing life in through the cracks. They are psychic creatures blistered by hope and beaten with twinges of nostalgia.
-Sarah Louise Davey

“No God for a Wanderer” works by Nicomi Nix Turner
The pieces I create reflect subject matters pertaining to biological deconstructionism, nature's legacy, alchemy, fables and counter-religious belief. In an orchestra of hyper-textured saturation, I aim to capture a cacophony of silent movement and erratic soliloquies in each piece.
-Nicomi Nix Turner

Nicomi Nix Turner was raised in Southern Oregon. The Pacific Northwest upbringing kindled an affinity for the botanical and entomological. Her hyper-detailed illustrations invoke a surreal understanding of the perfection in nature.
