Govinda Sah ‘Azad’ + Judy Tuwaletstiwa: Boundless
opening reception: Saturday, July 20, 4-6 pm
on view: July 20–August 17, 2024

Please join us for the opening of a two-person exhibition that explores the concept of transcending elementalism through aesthetic uses of material. Both artists, Govinda Sah ‘Azad’ and Judy Tuwaletstiwa, use the mediums of paint and glass, respectively, to navigate a topography of elemental forces.

Like clouds on a remote planet envisioned in myriad temperaments through the lens of an orbiting satellite, the oil and acrylic canvases of London-based Nepalese painter Govinda Sah ‘Azad’ are rich with opalescent tones and, at times, a gritty surface finish. Evocative of landscapes, his abstractions never settle into definitive objects of time and place but appear as thresholds to realms of mystery and possibility.

Judy Tuwaletstiwa’s interest in glass extends beyond its use as an artistic medium and includes interests in its history, chemical composition, array of colors, fragility, strength, and other dichotomies inherent to its amorphous nature. A writer, fiber artist, and painter for more than 50 years, Tuwaletstiwa’s, embrace of glass took off after she completed a residency at the Pilchuck Glass School in Washington state in 1998. Working with glass frits in a myriad of earth tones, she often creates large-scale compositions from components fashioned with little workmanship to allow the medium’s original nature to remain as integral elements to the work as much as possible.
