Last Garden Dress by Amy Wilkinson

An energetic synergy is released when Lisa Medendorp’s abstract paintings and the surrealistic sculptures of Amy Wilkinson get together. The dancing, twisting painted forms on canvas create a fitting surround to the restrained tension held in sculptural suspension.

Sentinel by Lisa Medendorp

The totemic, somewhat figurative forms in Medendorp’s paintings evoke mythological styles, The Lake Marcher’s series can be interpreted as being mythological defenders of the environment who march across Lake Michigan with the ever changing weather fronts.

Wilkinson utilizes wrapped wire and other fibers to create an eclectic weaving of reclaimed materials. Her themes involve strength, beauty, and perseverance lightly veiled in nostalgia, and encourage frugality when considering our resource allocations.

The two artists share a respect for the environment that is evident by the re-purposing of discarded materials in Wilkinson’s rustic assemblages that are in harmony with the themes that underlie Medendorp’s paintings. The use of interwoven shapes and materials in the works by both artists echo the interconnected web of nature.
