The exhibit Magic Grip features recent mixed media/surreal sculptures, drawings, and paintings by Boulder artist, Rebecca DiDomenico. On a conceptual level, the installation of Magic Grip resembles a prose poem with the objects and symbols forming phrases. Rock, flame, palm, bowl, legs, crown, relate to the words history, experiment, vocation, and hut. DiDomenico works from the inside out, abstracting observations – the subtle blend of a twig, the elegance of a frozen kingfisher, or the mathematically precise patterns on an expired tomatillo pod – into drawings and sculptures. In DiDomenico’s Magic Grip, these interests are realized, in part, through manifestations of spirals and worm holes, time and humanity, intangible thoughts and dreams, and varying methodologies of scientific inquiry. Her work relates to themes of time, alchemy, gender-sexuality, science, and a desire to realize the universe though touch. Through Magic Grip, a dialogue between the artwork, nature, and self emerges as thoughtful observations of a luminous and gracious world full of wonder and contradictions.
