Wade Wilson Art Houston is pleased to bring Santa Fe to Houston this spring, announcing the exhibition opening of Ted Flicker and Regina Foster.
Regina Foster combines the symbols she has come to recognize since childhood, with the scholarly formulas she has come to ponder as an adult. These symbols of Buddhas, Roses, birds on barbed wire, become the colorful face on the less identifiable backdrop of formulaic questioning on her canvases. While we are drawn in comfortably by these recognized symbols, we are met with unfamiliar formulas, symbols, letters, more mathematical questions that leave us uneasy in our lack of understanding. The formula used by Foster in her most recent work is one created by James Foster of The Elliot School of International Affairs at Washington State University in which he includes measures of happiness and joy to measure hope at the opposite ends of the economic distribution chain, and show disparity between hope and economic success. Regina Foster focuses on what it means to be happy in a world that measures happiness by economic product, how the relationship grown between those who rich and unhappy, and those who are poor and joyous, can be mutually beneficial.
In what he himself calls the ‘"third act" of his life, having moved on from film and literature, Ted Flicker is fascinated with the complex narrative of what it means to be an artist, a sculptor, a transcendental artist. For Flicker it is most important that he creates from himself something that has the audience, the viewer, question something about their beliefs, even if for a nano-second. Ted Flicker wants to create from himself that which has the other question something about themselves. Ted does this through both biblical and spiritual references evoking a deeper conversation from the viewers of his work.
Hours: Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. - 5 p.m.
The opening reception will take place on Thursday, May 2, 2013 from 6-8 p.m.
