Artist Angela Beloian produced “Topiaries” as a meditative and subtle exploration of organic forms in an effort to quiet life’s bombardment of stimuli.
Paintings within the exhibit are constructed much like a gardener shapes a topiary; Beloian physically ties elements in her paintings together. Her sewing suggests the work has organically grown in reaction to this process. The sewn paintings and large scale mural within “Topiaries” collectively employ ink, yarn, and latex paint. Her work harkens back to growing up within a family that appreciated handmade things and who practiced woodworking and knitting.
