Holes in the Wall Collective Creative Residency Program

Holes in the Wall Collective Creative Residency Program

This Deadline Expired: Saturday, August 12, 2017

JOIN Holes in the Wall Collective this summer in rural Pennsylvania for THREE-DAY and WEEK-LONG OPEN RESIDENCY PERIODS, for one of their FRAMEWORK themed WEEKS, for a Group, Troupe or Organization CABIN RENTAL, or to attend one of our WORKSHOPS/RETREATS.

INVITING PEOPLE ACROSS DISCIPLINES TO ENGAGE WITH THEIR PRACTICE AND SHARE COLLECTIVE SPACE. Expanding our residency to those working in science, policy, economics, mathematics, education, research, activism, pedagogy, technology in addition to the more known forms of creative practice in the visual arts, writing, performance & music.

HOLES IN THE WALL COLLECTIVE bridges together PEOPLE – IDEAS – MATERIALS – curating new experiences of form and content through unexpected engagement. We look to make holes in the walls of the normal, supporting and cultivating game changers in all forms – educators, economists, scientists, activists, artists . . . We share space for collaboration, for bridging together disciplines and for conversation and inquiry.

THE HOLES IN THE WALL CREATIVE RESIDENCY is held on 29 acres of woods, fields and a one-acre pond. Ample work space for mediums of all kinds – a large converted stone barn with group studios and space for movement – plus trails for walking, a pool and outside work spaces. Residents are housed in an all-wooden large cabin with a large kitchen and living area, screened in porch and four bedrooms – two singles, a double, and a dormitory space ideal for collaborators, each with a working desk or table.

BIG PROJECTS. SMALL PROJECTS. COLLABORATION. SOLO WORK.

As we barrel towards possible global calamity, creative work is all the more relevant and art all the more necessary. We often ask- do we have time for it? Do we have time not to do it?

Come join creatives of all kinds to work on your work, away from your daily context.

Programming runs from May through August 2017.

Chris Cox, a Philadelphia-area abstract artist, creates oil on canvas abstract landscape, seascapes and atmospheric paintings that are inspired and informed by what she has seen and experienced throughout the world. She builds upon layers of paint until each painting develops a rich history and texture. Her moody paintings are peaceful and meditative with a sense of mystery.

I was a choreographer and modern dancer for most of my life. It is the balance between energy and stillness that I carry into my art. I reflect this discord in a gesture and painterly contemporary style. I use a variety of media to create a raw, yet, luminous painting in oil, layering pastels, glazes, pencil, charcoal, and develop painted collages of varying surfaces. I create paintings directly from a model's pose and the subtle nuances of that gesture. I paint in a realistic approach, and yet, abstraction tends to take over. I have had an extensive career teaching art to students of all levels and ages. My teaching is an integral part of my art making process.

As my concern for our planet grows daily, I make art to express this, in the beautiful, mysterious language of abstraction. For the last 6 years I have been painting about our climate crisis in a series on rising waters, rain, birds, coral, forests and lost ice. I show both the beauty and desecration of our environment. I convey feeling through the use of color and movement.

I am an abstract artist represented by BeatyAmerican in Olde Kensington, Philadelphia.  My paintings include a series of Arctic landscapes which are based on images of arctic glaciers, tundra, and sea ice mainly in Greenland and Iceland.  I have been selected as the featured artist for the BeatyAmerican new space with NEXTFAB at 1800 American Street, Philadelphia.  I am drawn to the elements of the Arctic sea, land, and sky and the interface among these bodies.  Decisions are made what features and elements will remain and what will be discarded, reflecting a rapidly changing landscape yet still beautiful.
I work with oil paint, wet on dry, on wood panels with cradled frames establishing texture and depth using brushes, palette knives, oil sticks, and oil pens.  Completed paintings are professionally framed and ready to hang.
Earlier work focused on urban landscapes, refineries, bridges, buildings, other structures, and geometric patterns of developed lands and built environments.
