The Alasktic Print Series, Mappings, and Passages

Kip Deeds, Angela White & Tinam Valk

Opened Saturday at H&F Fine Arts Gallery in Mt Rainier, MD.
The exhibition runs through March 28th and features the work of three artists on three different adventures. From Alaska to Mexico, Europe, California and back…the artists come together in this exciting exhibition to share their journeys. Using paper and canvas as their maps and journeys, they draw by means of relief print, screen print, encaustic, oil, acrylic, watercolor, modeling paste, charcoal and other mixed media.

Together they present three exhibitions:
The Alasktic Print Series, Mappings, and Passages.

Angela White’s “Mappings” fuses translucent layers of luminous and encaustic surfaces that creates visual depth and density in her work from trips to our west and east coasts. White’s love of natural landscapes reflects a desire to show constant movement and natural rhythm. The seascapes and landscapes are created using mixed media, oil paints, and are occasionally embedded with gold and silver leaf covered with iridescent oil paints.

“The Alasktic Print Series” takes you on a journey from Mexico to Alaska through the eyes of Philadelphian artist, Kip Deeds. This project was initially inspired by Utagawa Hiroshige’s 1834 print series, “53 Stations on the Tokaido,” which depicts scenes along the famous eastern sea road in Japan. Deeds’ journey at times traces Lewis and Clark, depicts John Steinbeck’s Travels with Charlie, and moves to the lyrics of Woody Guthrie. A series of 15 relief and screen prints makes up “The Alasktic Series”.

Tinam Valk’s “Passages” through layers…layers of history, structures, statues, architecture. Tinam has traveled extensively to Europe, East Africa, South America but retreats annually to Hunting Island, SC for a constant source of inspiration. Painting’s fueled through memory or visits to old estates, Valk’s architecture-related paintings originate from modeling paste, acrylic, oils, charcoal, pencil, and pastel.
