New Exhibition at StudioEleven Features Works of Three Los Angeles Artists Inspired by Detritus, the Human Figure, and Gesture. Los Angeles, CA - studioeleven, a unique exhibition art gallery formed by 26 independent artists, is pleased to present its seventh exhibition Between the Lines featuring works by Los Angeles-based artists H. Barbara Cutler, Tressa Miller, and Beverly Feinstein who draw their inspiration from a wide range of influences, presenting three distinct points of view. The show, which runs from March 14 through April 5, 2015, is part of a series of shows at studioeleven that provides a showcase for its 26 members, who work in varied media including painting, mixed media, works on paper, sculpture and installations.
Through the use of a variety of materials, Cutler seeks to evoke emotional responses and to convey the element of change through evolving time. She received her Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts at California State University, Northridge and is currently a part of the Tom Wudl Art Workshop. She uses an intuitive process, as opposed to conceived concepts, to manipulate materials in a variety of ways. As she integrates into her works found objects and relics from the past, her desire is to awaken associations related to life and to the existence of matter. “My aim is to create a balance between spontaneity and control, achieved through layering.” Evident in all of her work, layering conveys symbolic stratification and the passage of time. She adds, “My desire is to create visual feedback through an interactive relationship with the art.”
Miller received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Ohio State University, Columbus and currently studies with Tom Wudl at the Tom Wudl Studio, where he has encouraged her to nurture the “other side” of her artistic personality, the side, she says, “that is patient, persistent and focused - the side that helps me find authenticity and to present it with authority in my art.” Most recently, and represented in this exhibition, Miller uses the human figure as an iconic symbol that has no boundaries in time or cultures. “Since childhood, I have loved to draw the figure and here, I am utilizing skills to express movement and attitude through line, spatial relationships and color.” For help in execution, she draws inspiration from anatomy and yoga manuals, as well as other artists - specifically Picasso, Matisse, and Richard Tuttle.
