February 8 – March 10
Patterns of Change by Kathleen Caprario and Marissa Solini.  In the Whipple Fine Arts Building Art Gallery.  Caprario’s mix-media works look to exterior spaces, echoing patterns of seasons, human interaction with nature, and movement through space. Caprario refers to these pieces as “wallpaper”, stating that ones surrounding landscape, much like wallpaper in one’s home, is “an important but often overlooked environmental influence”. These images are also part map, conveying the experience of walking in a dense forest through layers of stenciled leaves and stems. Meanwhile, Solini’s oil paintings trace patterns within the domestic sphere. Using the apron as a symbol that mirrors patterns of life, she archives daily activities of its user. Showing the aprons hanging - before or after their use - she carefully articulates the folds and pattern disruption. The works by these two artists may appear disparate on the surface. However, upon closer inspection, one discovers they hold together visually and conceptually by the use of repeating patterns, the use of color, pattern, and shape, the use of their social, aesthetic, and environmental influence and the use of feminine identity.
