Cheryl Hrudka & Stan Johnson:  "Where We Were"

November 7th - December 30th, 2020


“Where We Were….

There is definitely an evolutionary process to being an artist. Somewhere along the line, we each picked up a camera and started taking photos of what we each thought was interesting. With each photograph we learned what we enjoyed and practiced our techniques, especially in Street Photography. With each day spent in our darkrooms, we learned the excitement of developing those photographs, as well as the art of manipulation. Eventually, we took our photographs and started manipulating them on the computer. 

Our abstracts were created, and another step in the evolution process was embraced. From using our photographs, to creating an abstraction from scratch was a logical progression. With the vast array of computer art software, we have evolved from ‘where we were’, to ‘where we are’. For each of us the evolution of our abstract images"  - Cheryl Hrudka & Stan Johnson

"These are particularly trying moments in our lives. We have the isolation that has come with Covid-19 as well as its threat to our health and to our economy. Also among our stressors are massive wildfires in the West and historic hurricanes and flooding in the Southeast. On top of all that is a contentious, fragmented political atmosphere. It’s no wonder we feel anxious.

My latest exhibition is entitled Still.Together. The paintings are offered as serene resting places from our hectic, complex world. They are moments of reprieve." - Karen Hansen

"These 2 self portraits illustrate the journey I have taken in order to become the artist I am now.

They are ink drawings which were returned to me 30 years after I created them.

I invite you to take a close look."


"I cut wood to make relief into an imaginary landscape.

I cut earth to make a garden where people walk and find relief.

Here, I honor the legacy of my father and fuse his imaginary woodcut images with mine

To synthesize a new vision of landscape."

BILL SHERWOOD

"I reverse paint on glass using resins and epoxies often lighting behind the painting creating layered effects.

'What were you thinking?' I’m often asked when my works are displayed on a gallery wall. Early on in my career I rendered simply, 'when art meets science' "

“I am a structural expressionist. At first, the two concepts seem ill suited. This awkward synthesis creates a dynamic tension in my work. By alternating structure (expression) in the figure and expression (structure) in the ground, the forces at play can be reconciled.” - Stanley Johnson
