Off Leash Three

 

Artists Diana Hillman, Vickie Wild and Gail Prussky join together to create a show filled with everything from distorted mystical beasts, to trucks, planes and journeys and sophisticated folk art wooden animals.  Diana Hillman's ethereal landscapes depict the ordinary and make it extraordinary, whether a solitary four way stop or long distance truck and a clear passing lane, even views from aeroplane windows.  They all hint at a deeper meaning and a true connection to the land.  

 

Vickie Wild's 21st Century folk art hint at the bygone naive style, but have an upscale sophisticated finish and humorous overtones.  Suddenly quirky art has a home in our sometimes too sensible modern interiors.  She says “I cut my animals out of wood. Paint them and use horse hair, sheepskin, leather - whatever is natural and appropriate to embellish them. I like to connect to my viewers through the individual animal’s whimsy. They become beating hearts to me. Each with their own story.”

 

Gail Prussky's mystical beasts and mysterious people pivot between being humorous and whimsical, and something more sinister.  Paintings, drawings and pastels hover on paper and wood, challenging the viewer to select their response.  When asked she says her art "comes from a place that has no language”
