Herndon ArtSpace : 750 Center St, Herndon, VA 20170
Herndon’s downtown art center, ArtSpace, is pleased to announce the opening of a new exhibition, “The Elements,” featuring the imaginative work of four contemporary artists:
Sherill Anne Gross, Sean Hennessy, Sean Lundgren and Alexandra Zealand.
Anchored in the classic elements of Hellenic physics – Water, Fire, Earth and Air – these artists use the elements as a part of their medium, rather than as the subject of their works.
Paper can not be created without water; ironically too much water can also destroy paper. Early fire pits dug into the sand had the side effect of also causing the first forms of glass, when the extreme heat of the fire melted silica. Dirt is the earth, the source of clay, and the root of life. Air is the space that floats between suspended objects, allowing for movement, light and shadow. Air is also the catalyst for physical transformation.
