Brita Holmquist - Spring Chickens

March 9 - April 14, 2018

Reception: March 9 from 5 to 7 pm

Brita Holmquist reconstructs antics and personalities in Spring Chickens as her birds traverse gardens in cheerful citron light and turquoise shadows as waxy pastel vignettes. Trees bend and hover as cobalt, periwinkle, sage, and pink outlines. Miniature circles, wisps of color, curves, dashes, and dots in ebony, ochre, grey, and burnt orange masquerade as moving feathers. Holmquist filters chickens’ and occasional rooster’s private interludes with immense heart and spirit. The immediacy of these small works draws upon a tender feeling as mementos of a nuanced life.
