Mariella Bisson’s large-scale, mixed media paintings of picturesque waterfalls in upstate New York are coupled with her preparatory drawings and watercolors in Sunlight, Water and Gravity.

Join us for an adventure in “green” bookmaking! Spend the afternoon exploring Freshkills Park and joining in a workshop with artist and instructor Susan Mills in conjunction with the ongoing project UnCommon Pages. You’ll learn about bookmaking, habitat restoration, and recycling in its purest form.

The Freshkills Park site is in a continual phase change from landfill to park, a conceptual and physical reclamation. In July 2014, Susan and workshop participants harvested the invasive plant species Phragmites (also known as the common reed) on site at the park, then Susan undertook the labor-intensive process of transforming this raw material into paper sheets. Over a series of workshops like this one, these sheets are being bound as the cover stock for 2,000 passport-sized Field Notebooks.

Mariella Bisson’s large-scale, mixed media paintings of picturesque waterfalls in upstate New York are coupled with her preparatory drawings and watercolors in Sunlight, Water and Gravity. Her paintings, created with hundreds of pieces of layered paper, teeter on the edge of abstraction and representation. The overlapping paper replicates the texture of rushing water and rock strata. Motion, gravity, and the endlessness of geological time are as much the subject of Bisson’s paintings as the actual waterfalls.

Mariella Bisson’s large-scale, mixed media paintings of picturesque waterfalls in upstate New York are coupled with her preparatory drawings and watercolors in Sunlight, Water and Gravity.

<![CDATA[Exhibition: Mariella Bisson: Sunlight, Water and Gravity]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2015/05/26/exhibition-mariella-bisson-sunlight-water-and-gravity http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2015/05/26/exhibition-mariella-bisson-sunlight-water-and-gravity Date: May 26, 2015

Mariella Bisson’s large-scale, mixed media paintings of picturesque waterfalls in upstate New York are coupled with her preparatory drawings and watercolors in Sunlight, Water and Gravity. Her paintings, created with hundreds of pieces of layered paper, teeter on the edge of abstraction and representation. The overlapping paper replicates the texture of rushing water and rock strata. Motion, gravity, and the endlessness of geological time are as much the subject of Bisson’s paintings as the actual waterfalls.
