Light & Depth: Featuring Marine Weiss and Jennifer Brewer Stone Opens in TAG;
The Associates Gallery at the Torpedo Factory Art Center
Light & Depth will open in TAG (The Associates Gallery) on July 11, 2017. This exhibition by Torpedo Factory Artists’ Association members Jennifer Brewer Stone and Marine Weiss pairs the abstracted natural forms created by artist Brewer Stone, with the windows of ‘stained glass fabric’ by artist Weiss. The show will be on display in TAG from July 11 to July 31. An opening reception will be held on July 13, 6:30-8:30 p.m. This will be during the Second Thursday art event, and multiple receptions will be happening in the building. A partial gallery show with pieces from all 14 members of TAG is also on display.
Jennifer Brewer Stone
Jennifer Brewer Stone is fascinated by the majesty of nature and her pieces evoke that sense of awe. In this show, Brewer Stone explores abstracted natural forms and the merging of sea and outer space.
Brewer Stone’s pieces combine honey-like resin, sometimes in multiple layers, acrylic paint, and metallic pigment. The resin flows over the surface like water and cannot be controlled entirely–similar to nature. Colors bloom within the resin or create cells, replicating natural
elements. As an artist Brewer Stone works between control and the unexpected dictated by the materials.
Brewer Stone was juried into the Torpedo Factory in March of 2012, and works from Studio 227. She has been accepted into national and international juried shows for her work on her Dance of Life Series, including ArtKudos, Art Buzz, and the Richeson 75 Wildlife competition. Her work has been collected across the United States and in Europe.
Marine Weiss strives to make sense of disorder in her artwork and this show represents the sweet nostalgia of the places in Weiss’s heart. Her pieces are little windows into her dreams and she is inspired by the many shades and hues of nature. Weiss mixes different media such as painting, sewing, quilting, embroidery. Her pieces glow, reminiscent of stained glass brilliantly illuminated by sunlight, by adding a light box frame to an artistically woven cloth.
Weiss was juried into the Torpedo Factory in March 2017. She is a 2003 graduate of the Sorbonne, University of Paris in Arts Plastiques and Italian Literature. She owned and managed an organic grocery in the Montmartre neighborhood of Paris called Bio Neige for many years following graduation. She lives in Alexandria, Virginia. Weiss is participating in the Torpedo Factory Visiting Artist Program and will be working in Studio 328 during the month of August.
