The pairing of art is determined by the curator. Hanging Eugene Walsh Garcia adjacent Liz Wolf reveal aesthetic sense and contrast. Painter Garcia studied in Mexico on the heels of his maternal heritage. Liz Wolf originally studied law and her work often incorporate her Jewish heritage.
In this work, Garcia’s oils connote a feeling of Gabriel Macotela more so in the palette. Then again, one might sense a hint of Picasso and Cezanne.
“Eugene Walsh Garcia
Walsh García, born and raised in the Washington D.C. area, began his formal training at the University of Maryland, College Park. A Fulbright-García Robles scholarship took him to Mexico City, in his maternal homeland, where he had the honor of studying under the country’s preeminent painter/educator, Gilberto Aceves Navarro and the contemporary multidisciplinary master Gabriel Macotela. Walsh García has shown his work in legendary alternative Mexico City sites, such as Enanos de Tapanco, Gimena y la Fábrica, and Barandal. He has recently returned to the D.C. area where he continues to produce and show his work.”
Liz Wolf demonstrates complexity achieved through monoprinting techniques.
A printmaker and teacher of printmaking, has been teaching and exhibiting in the Southeast for the past 30 years. She works at a studio at the Lee Arts Center in Arlington, Virginia. She teaches printmaking, book arts and children’s workshops in area schools and art centers.
Her work combines photographic imagery and hand drawn layers to create colorful, many layered prints. She has made prints about biblical stories, women’s issues, nature and abstracted gears. See her website for images of these prints.”
Other pairings happening at Waverly is the juxtaposition of artists who share studios or work in the same facility as in the case of Liz Wolf, Maureen George, and the potter, Thien Nguyen.
