Line of Sight: Paintings by Rebecca Coffin Anderson Ceramics by Jennifer Quie Coffin @ Waverly Street Gallery
Sep 8 – Oct 5 all-day
Line of Sight:  Paintings by Rebecca Coffin Anderson Ceramics by Jennifer Quie Coffin @ Waverly Street Gallery

Line of Sight refers to the direction in which a person must look in order to see a particular object. This conjunction of ceramic and watercolor works explores the interplay between nearness and distance, drawing out the impact of direction, and perspective on perception. Jennifer Coffin’s ceramic elements present the detail, texture, and immediacy of form experienced in entering a landscape. Rebecca Anderson’s paintings layer the effects of distance and proximity with the sense of atmosphere and space in abstracted landscapes seen from above, close to the water’s edge, through a copse of trees, or from afar.

In this joint exhibition, proximity, vantage point, and aperture transform the viewer’s experience of materials, objects, and landscapes. Coffin’s clay bodies and Anderson’s paintings are formed from foraged and found organic matter and are reconstituted as abstracted landscapes. Dimension and topography emerge from fossilized shells, mineral clay and grapevine charcoal.
