Enormity – NEA Big Read: Attleboro

This was posted on August 1st, 2019

 

Enormity

An exhibition inspired by Nathaniel Philbrick’s In the Heart of the Sea

 

Exhibtion: September 14th – 21st, 2019

Enormity Opening Reception and NEA Big Read Kick-off Event:

Sat., Sept. 14th, 2019; 2pm – 4pm

Free and open to all

A reservation is requested, but not required.

Call the Attleboro Arts Museum at 508-222-2644 x10 or email office@attleboroartsmuseum.org to reserve your space.

 

 

Since 2007 the Attleboro Arts Museum has been an active partner in the NEA Big Read: Attleboro.  In this National Endowment for the Arts program, participants are encouraged to read the same book at the same time – and extend their connection to the chosen text through local arts and culture activities. The NEA Big Read broadens our understanding of our world, our communities, and ourselves through the joy of sharing a good book. 

This year, in collaboration with undergraduate sculpture students from Wheaton’s College Department of Visual Art and the History of Art, the Attleboro Arts Museum presents Enormity – an exhibition of original 3D forms inspired by Nathaniel Philbrick’s bestseller In the Heart of the Sea.

Enormity explores perilousness and overwhelmingly difficult circumstances. Emerging sculptors interpret the actions of a vengeful whale, the profound struggles between moral code vs. survival and how – despite being surrounded by the seemingly endless angry seas – one fights to carry on. 

 

 

NEA Big Read is a program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest.

“Imagination” by Michael Bergt, egg tempera.

 

Egg tempera is a mystical medium as it has roots in the early Renaissance.  During this time period, such artists as Giotto, Piero della Francesca and Fra Angelico were paying homage to the deity and angels.  The medium sanctified nature and all that it touched in its pictorial plane. Naturalism played an important role on the depiction of sacred themes. 

The act of creating these magnificent jewel-like paintings was accomplished through simple media: the yolk of an egg, ground powdered pigments and water.  Mixed together and applied with tiny brushstrokes, which layered color upon color, an artist could achieve translucency and opaqueness.  The weaving of brushstroke and tempered paint created exquisite iconic artworks.   The nature of the tempera medium is open for experimentation as well as continuum with ancient practices in our modern day.

The eight artists in this exhibit have conceived new stories which are documented through the medium of tempera.  Michael Bergt’s work features the human figure, integrating classical myths, sensuality, and the human condition.  Jon Gernon draws inspiration from the Renaissance, drawing on symbolism and combining it with magic realism.  Both Carol A. O’Neill and Banjie Nicholas are drawn to nature, weaving birds and leaves into their picture planes.  Jennifer Knaus marries female iconography with quirky elements of nature; she is interested in tapping into the subconscious.  Eileen Kennedy’s painted narratives come from dreams and memories to create stylized figures caught up in shallow spaces.  Lastly, Diane Savino weaves nature with human nature, creating commentaries about journeys, desires and sanctity.

This exhibition offers fresh approaches to a medium that the Italian writer, Cennini Cennino, wrote about in his treatise in the 1400s. The participating artists feel a kinship with the ancient medium, drawing inspiration from early masters and continuing their artistic lineage.
