GERRI SPILKA – INTERACTIONS THEN & NOW
September 11 @ 12:00 pm - November 30 @ 6:00 pm
FRG OBJECTS and DESIGN / ART is pleased to present the bold, colorful wall-mounted fabric constructions of Philadelphia based artist Gerri Spilka. The work defies traditional quilting techniques with unconstrained gestural force and kinetic energy. Spilka’s use of color is equally untraditional: rather than using prints, her solid color units align to make decisive, simple geometric and biomorphic shapes, juxtaposing unexpected, luminous hues. Static is not in Spilka’s vocabulary; her constructions are alive with movement; repetitive free lines of machine quilting give a throbbing quality to the works.
FRG OBJECTS & DESIGN / ART is known for their upbeat solo exhibitions featuring color saturated graphic contemporary art. Gallery owner / director FR Gillette has introduced numerous artists to the Hudson community while maintaining a beautifully curated furniture, lighting and objects showroom. Gillette’s interior design skills and well documented previous career in the fashion and beauty photography industry all come into play “to create a unique visual experience where the line between fine art and decor is blurred” in one of the most beloved towns in America.
