Philagrafika 2010: Shelley Thorstensen at the Woodmere Art Museum

A guest post by Lindsay McKeighan

“Our eyes are tactile organs. We trace form, the feel of what we see; we see and remember” – S. Thorstensen

Shelley Thorstensen‘s solo exhibition The Leap from Vision to Print at the Woodmere Art Museum is a Philagrafika 2010 Independent Project.  The show is up from now until – July 31 2010. Thorstensen’s work observes the personal experience observing one’s conscience environment both internally and externally and in tandem. It explores the duality of mind and body with elegance and motif. Patters repeat organically. Colors pop and flow with emphasis. Mysteries present themselves in this uplifting and contemplative body of work. Visit to reflect on the joy of living, while acknowledging the impermanence we all must accept. The mediums utilized by Thorstensen include traditional: Intaglio, lithography and silkscreen layered brilliantly to expose internal and external impressions or “reflections”.
