Ammon News - The Gateway Gallery at Great Bay Community College announced the opening exhibition of the 2022-2023 academic year with “Connect, Combine, Reflect” by Rollinsford, N.H. based artist Shiao-Ping Wang. Representative of the woven and ephemeral nature of human experience, “Connect, Combine, Reflect” presents a collection of abstract paintings inviting viewers to take a moment of pause and reflect upon the intangible and fleeting nature of much of our daily lives.

Featuring six large scale paintings, Ms. Wang has created a group of works that joyfully welcome inspection and contemplation within the gallery space. Using a combination of acrylics and Flashe, an artist’s grade vinyl paint, the layered works shift in color as viewers move through the gallery and as the day progresses. The subtle nature of this dynamic presentation ensures a multitude of unique viewing experiences, perfectly reflective of Ms. Wang’s inspiration for the work.

In addition to the careful and considered use of color, Ms. Wang also incorporates signs, symbols, and patterns to create points of literality within the abstract works. Sinuous lines become understood as knotted thread when viewed next to repeated fabric-like patterning, and the comparatively harsh geometry of punctuation marks and geometric shapes present the viewer with ample opportunities to draw connections between the works and throughout the gallery space.

The exhibition is now open to the public and will remain on view until October 14. A closing reception for the exhibition will be held in October, with further details to follow.

The Gateway Gallery is located in the main lobby of GBCC’s Portsmouth campus at the Pease Tradeport, 320 Corporate Avenue, Portsmouth, N.H. Any inquiries regarding the exhibition can be made to the gallery curator, Andrew Super, via email at asuper@ccsnh.edu. Exhibit is open during regular campus hours.
