Lark & Key presents “Circular Thoughts, Forget Me Not”, opening Friday, Feb 7th from 6-8:30 pm and on view through March 27th.
“Circular Thoughts, Forget Me Not” a solo exhibition by co-owner Duy Huynh, marks the gallery’s 12th year in business. Duy describes his recent works as a “lighthearted look into the language of nature, and the nature of language”. With an assortment of peculiar wordplay and an enchanting array of symbolism from the natural world, Duy explores themes of cathartic transformation, delicate balances, and the search for solace. His goal is to nurture a visual language that evokes a sense of wonderment while celebrating the fragility of a precarious life.
Featured ceramic artist, Western NC based Julie Covington aims “to create simple, sturdy tableware that feels and looks pretty good, and is equally at home on an intimate dinner table or on the floor of an old pick-up truck”. Vines, stripes, circles, squiggles and dots adorn the surface of her wheel-thrown (sometimes altered), stoneware forms, created by using a wax resist technique. The playful patterns are inspired by nature and highlighted by her use of rich, warm colors. For the exhibit, Julie will also create a series of limited edition cups and mugs, decorated with decal images created from Duy’s drawings.
