Joshua Liner Gallery is pleased to present Intertwined, a two-person exhibition featuring the works of California based artist, Serena Mitnik-Miller and Sydney, Australia based artist, Stephen Ormandy. Intertwined opens on October 10 and will remain on view through November 9, 2019. Both artists will attend the opening reception.
Intertwined juxtaposes Mitnik-Miller’s serene geometric watercolors alongside Ormandy’s hard-edge oil on linen canvases and marble sculptures. Using altogether different mediums, both artists explore the effects of layering, motion, and infinity through undulating forms and lines. This fascination with undulation can perhaps be traced to their shared affinity for the ocean. Never far from the water, Mitnik-Miller grew up in Hawaii and currently lives in the Malibu. As the artist explains, “I have always been most inspired by the natural world, the deserts, the mountains, the ocean.” Not only does Mitnik-Miller’s medium of choice, watercolor, pigment suspended in an aqueous solution, require water, but her curvy compositions echo the rhythm of the waves. Likewise, Ormandy’s adoration for the water is clear when he asserts, “My love for the ocean is always with me.” The conjoining bands of white marble in Twist and Tower, fold in on themselves as they crest, conjuring the swelling of the waves.
