In this exhibit Aline Chevalier and Robert Pulley make a strong commitment to process, building layers upon layers of detailed marks in a deep and meaningful way.
Aline Chevalier’s work, full of poetics and whimsy, tells a story of place: Perhaps one that is familiar, or maybe one that we want to know better. Using collage techniques, Chevalier encourages the viewer to look closer, to investigate her use of color, line, pattern and repetition.
Robert Pulley provides an introspective view into the self and into the landscape. Pulley’s sculptures are expressive with intensified details of texture, and pigments that reflect the surrounding environment. The selection of works on display, occupy a more neutral palette than usual, with a slight nod toward minimalism.
There is a loose commonality in their approach to making work: both Robert and Aline are incredibly prolific and open to exploring where the creative process will take them, developing their own languages to translate the world around us.
About the Gallery
411 is a community arts gallery and cultural space for exhibitions, events, and collaborations with Columbus’ arts and cultural organizations.
Managed by the Columbus Area Arts Council, 411 is made possible by grants from the Efroymson Family Fund, the Columbus Area Visitors Center, the Columbus Museum of Art & Design and by donations from the community.
The 411 Community Studio is a flexible space for local and visiting artists to work, meet and collaborate. Made of custom plywood panels and built-in furniture, the space is meant to evolve as artists work with the community to reimagine the exhibition wall into temporary installations. The Community Studio is part of the Columbus Area Arts Council's inaugural residency project and was made possible through generous support from Heritage Fund: The Community Foundation of Bartholomew County.
Learning Patterns Mural
Expanding on LAA Office's research into the design and construction of the Cleo Rogers Memorial Library, Learning Patterns reinterprets historic diagrams used for organizing the library's furniture layouts. A mural installed on the gallery's east facade creates a larger composition that celebrates an important part of Columbus' design heritage. Funding for the mural was generously provided by the Columbus Museum of Art & Design.
