WE ARE VERY PLEASED TO HOST AN UPCOMING EVENT:

 

NOVEMBER 11TH, 2017

GWEN FABER-TERPSTRA

MESS-A-JING a mixed media installation
addressing "the loss of authentic communication"

OPENING RECEPTION
PLEASE JOIN US SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 11TH   6-9PM.

Artists Statement: Gwen Faber-Terpstra mixed media   I’m working with the concept of chance, as well as with my affinity for symbols and letterforms. There are 3 small series within this group of work. First, are works with vinyl letters on vintage cast off wallpaper in minimal compositions. These three pieces could read as simple poems. Second, the series of small negative space vinyl backings of the letters are semi-sculptural pieces, which have a chance, chaotic element occur from the gravity and electricity of the sticky plastic backing tangling up the material when pulled off. My role is to make order out of the chaos and create a composition that is both 2-D and 3-D on the wall. When taken off the wall they are destroyed, thus they become temporary installations.  Third, are abstract paintings using type, tapes and mixed media.   The work speaks to our culture’s loss of authentic communication as well as the difficulty accessing “truth” in lieu of the randomness of the internet and digital communication and in the present political situation. My work as a print graphic  designer for many years enters into the pieces with my choices of utilizing letterforms as a medium. Visually, there is an action and a feeling of “a mess happening” and an effort to create order.  The pieces ride a certain edge I like, which could connote language being at the same time incessant noise and sublime quiet.

OBA Story

In early 2013 several Outer Sunset artists, who knew each other through neighborhood meetings, classes or church, decided to create a local group to encourage, critique and support each other’s work.

For over 5 years now, the group has been meeting once a month.  The meetings take place on 45th avenue, rotating among the various artists’ homes.   

The group currently has ten active members who work with a variety of mediums.  Including photography, drawing, painting, collage, quilting and printing. 

Our community is named the Ocean Beach Artists, OBA.
