His Carpets Flowered

Interface Gallery is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of new work by Ehling/Bennett - the collaborative practice of Jeremy Ehling and Kim Bennett. The artists have worked in collaboration since 2014. Ehling has worked in stained glass conservation and Bennett comes from a family of quilters. These backgrounds inform their collaborative process, which involves handing their works back and forth as the artists alternatively stitch material to the surface and add gestural marks and washes of paint. They describe this process and the resultant works as “rectangle conversations.” In their words: "Talking is part of it, sitting outside is part of it. Leaves falling are part of it. Finding a relationship to the ways people used to make things is part of it." The title for this show comes from Lorine Niedecker's poem of the same name. Please join us for an artist reception on Friday, May 5th, from 6-9 pm.
