The Secret Birds includes 18 small-scale collages,
drawings and prints that are a homage to nature. “I love pictures that
evoke the feeling of the land,” says Fitzpatrick, the idea that the land has a memory, that it remembers every transgression.” Describing The Winter Bird,
pictured above, Fitzpatrick explains, “About 10 years ago I spotted an Arctic bunting right outside of Marshall Field’s perched on a mailbox. It had no business
being there. I was mesmerized and charmed, and later made the realization that it was the music of chance. It was a private moment in the city. Nature isn’t something that happens 100 miles away. it’s all around us. We’re part of it. Its ongoing. We are the result of it.”

KINETIC: Opening Reception March 7th, 2014

In physics, the kinetic energy of an object is the energy it acquires due to its motion. It is the “work” needed to accelerate a body of a mass from rest to its current velocity. The same amount of “work” is done by the body to decelerate back to a state of rest.

Artists, Kelly Houlihan and Jesse Sioux Achramowicz’s work is almost like a mapping of movement through space. They both play with elements of geometry, gravity, space, and movement. Both artists works are based primarily in abstraction but not without the occasional figurative element. However many aspects alike, Jesse and Kelly are also varying in inspiration and technique. Jesse consciously references the world of physics and sound in her works while Kelly takes a very organic and human approach to her world of color, shape and texture.

“Kinetic” is a collaborative exhibition of works by two young women who are constantly exploring the world(s) we don’t see with our naked eyes and the energies it takes to make the world go round.

JESSE SIOUX
Having studied relative mechanics and been a musician simultaneously to a visual artist, Jesse Sioux Achramowicz has developed a style of mark-making that she considers to have the intuitive presence of a system. Whether it be a language or a mapping, she is very curious about elements of the universe that are unknown or unseen. She is also interested in semiotics, technology and the future. With titles like “Twilite” and “Lascaux” she continues to find similarities in primitive human expressions and the likes of the universe as seen through the eyes of physicists.
She fantasizes about making discoveries about the universe through making art.
