Of Place and Space

Of Place and Space 
Brian Boutwell & Emily Elliott 

January 4 - 29, 2023 
Of Place and Space Virtual Tour & Talk 

Cerulean Arts is pleased to present Of Place and Space featuring paintings by Brian Boutwell and sculptures by Emily Elliott.  Each artist strives to articulate their responses to the experienced and remembered, both terrestrial and celestial.  Brian Boutwell uses color, shape and texture in his oil on canvas abstractions in an effort to depict some combination of lived environment and past memory.  He actively engages with his paintings as objects, reacting and changing their structure and, at times, stumbling upon chance moments.  Affected by a sense of quiet vastness and sublime associations of the astronomical and celestial, Emily Elliott works in between sculpture and printmaking to mimic conditions of atmospheric spectacle bonded with emotional response. Using such materials as slick plaster, scarred carbon paper, grated charcoal, pocketed stones and gathered sand, she seeks surfaces and textures that can recall those of other-planetary crusts or murky blackness of deep space.
