The abstract paintings and sculpture of Anne Marchand and Craig Schaffer are well paired in this exhibition with their graceful swirls and rhythms. Yet, they differ in their genesis. Marchand paints  universal rhythms as joyous expressions of life, contrasting luminous depth and surface richness. Her work is inspired by mystical poetry and space exploration. Schaffer creates dynamic sculptural pieces inspired by science and nature. In this series, his work is based on fractal forms … shapes repeating at different scales created by the ongoing processes of life, such as the branching of plants to catch the sun.
