Geometry and Other Myths by Sharon Wolpoff and Tammra Sigler

Sharon Wolpoff and Tammra Sigler explore the creative process in their two-person exhibition of paintings, prints and more.

 

At first glance the art of Sharon Wolpoff has little in common with the art of Tammra Sigler. Wolpoff is a painter of carefully composed scenes from life, suffused with light and heightened color. Sigler is an expressionist artist who is known for improvisation and bravura brushwork. However, similarities and contrasts emerge in their work as they engage with three different paths to knowledge of the world: geometry, psychology, and spirituality. Sigler's work starts with geometry as a foundation and moves away from it towards the emotional, while Wolpoff's work begins with an emotional response and moves towards the underlying geometry or structure. Both artists have beautifully structured artwork, and their uses of structure have psychological and spiritual functions, as well.
