32 of 200 Artists Rep InLiquid at Friends of Rail Park Benefit Show

If you didn’t hear, Philly now has its own elevated urban park worth bragging about: the Rail Park.

Reminiscent of New York’s Highline or the Promenade Plantée in Paris, the quarter mile once housed the Reading Railroad tracks.  Now, it is a green space with plenty of trees, benches, and even swings, under an industrial aesthetic. The organization behind this ambitious project, Friends of Rail Park, has recently teamed up with Bridgette Mayer Gallery and Arts & Crafts Holdings to present an exhibition of over 200 artists (30 repping InLiquid!), of which proceeds will benefit the Rail Park’s programming and upkeep.

Check out the artists exhibiting below, or see for yourself at the opening reception this First Friday, September 7th, from 5-9PM.   The show will be on view until October 5th, 2018.

I enjoy the manipulation of materials and how process itself contributes to the life and form of the image. Dramatic, gestural lines describe the play of light and wind across the water, while softer marks add life to the slow movement of rain laden clouds. Areas of sky, water, and land are knit together with brushstrokes to represent their seamless interaction under the common conditions of weather and time. In my acid etched tin pieces, areas of watery marks are left visible to suggest the underlying layers of the landscape. I  do not strive to recreate the particulars of  places that inspire me, but rather the timelessness of the elements of light, weather, and geometries that inform them. My work is not about how the landscape looks as much as about how the landscape makes me feel. I try to create an image that allows the viewer to engage with it in such a way as to invite similar introspection.
