“Unexpected Connections” is an online exhibition series that reviews Alfons Gallery’s past solo exhibits in a new light by merging two artists’ work in this alternative space. This particular series is in search of unexpected connections between diverse artworks following distinct inspirations and artistic intents.

With this series, we aim to encourage open minds as we search for aspects that connect rather than divide. We offer these art analyses as starting points for honing a valuable ability that we can apply to our daily social interactions.

As this series continues, the comparisons being offered are pushing the boundaries of the unexpected, as presented in this series connecting artwork by Nancy Lamers and Janet Roberts.

“Unexpected Connections:  Robin Jebavy and Peggy Thurston Farrell”

May/June, 2020

 

The images in both of these artworks create a sense of energy through repeated, pointed shapes spinning away from center.  In Jebavy’s piece, bright glassware forms point outward over luminous pieces of a still-life environment, inspired by stained-glass windows and other cathedral ornamentation.  In Thurston Farrell’s piece, hands and arrows connected to a central QR code aim at floating symbols from spiritual cultures, inspired by her Asian travels.
