PULP is pleased to announce an exhibition of work by Robbie Heidinger, Sheila King, and Jane E. Simpson.
Born in 1942 , Sheila King has just recently turned her attention to geometric abstraction, inspired by the world around her. King’s bold colors and forms are rooted in folk mysticism, and feel connected to Hilma af Klint, Agnes Martin, Carmen Herrera to name a few.
Jane E. Simpson creates work from found objects, paper and photographs. We present 3 of her series in this exhibition.In ‘unidentified’,found photographs of unidentified woman, book fragments and linen are joined with hand-embroidered quotes from notable women, i.e. Hillary Clinton, Georgia O’Keefe…These assemblages are held together with invisible fasteners employed almost exclusively for feminine attire.Simpson wants to bring attention to the countless ‘invisible’ women and forgotten stories and struggles that are the bedrock of today’s tipping point.
Robbie Heidinger is an nationally known potter and part of the Hilltown 6 group of potters in Western Massachusetts. Heidinger states,
“I am very attracted to art objects that are imbued with an internal life. I think one of the things that first attracted me to ceramics was the intrinsically implied life force of the vessel. The container that carries the metaphor for that which can carry, hold, protect and create life.”
The three women artists together bring focus and a voice to women’s strength and struggles of the past and present, and also celebrate the wonder, spirituality, creativity and determination that can be built on for the future.
