LAINE BACHMAN & JULIE WOODROW"Surroundings"March 10 - April 20, 2019Opening Reception: Sunday, March 10, 1-4pm, Artist Remarks at 2pmPreview the exhibition at www.sherriegallerie.comLaine Bachman and Julie Woodrow traveled together to Cuba after receiving a grant from the Aminah Brenda Lynn Robinson Professional Development and Research Memorial Fund from the Greater Columbus Arts Council. This exhibition represents a continuation of those ideas, and shows the impact Cuba had on their work.With keen attention to detail, Laine Bachman’s paintings are abound with realistic and imagined flora and fauna, whose unique illustrative quality contributes to the deeper narrative within her work. This body of work showcases animals as the true luminaries of their realm. Embedded with fables, folklore, and a bit of wordplay, this series embraces the idea of an animal kingdom in a symbolic and anthropomorphic way.Laine is a graduate of the Columbus College of Art and Design, and resides in Columbus, Ohio with her husband and daughter. Julie Woodrow has an intense curiosity and awe for the flora, fauna and geography of her surroundings. Her sculptures often reveal architectural and natural boundaries, passages and divisions. Bridges, landscapes, and ruins are joined with figures, suggesting a physical and psychological tie.Twenty-five years into her career of teaching and making art, Julie continues to emphasize that the reciprocal relationship between the two is always at the core of her work.
