Between Representation and Abstraction represents the narrow margin amid two perceptions that can be inexplicably transformed into one another. This ambiguous space in between has attributes of both modes of expression: likeness and transcendence.
This exhibition showcases the work of two very different artists: Sally Frank and Natasha Karpinskaia. Both artists have a love affair with paper and prefer monotypes for their intrinsic qualities and unpredictable nature. Frank draws inspiration from nature, and while her pieces are emblematic of her surroundings, they still possess beautiful abstract qualities. Karpinskaia, however, is influenced by ideas other than nature. Though at times her abstract work may have strong landscape qualities, they often appear dreamt up and surreal.

The exhibit celebrates the many ways our world can be seen. Four different artists with four different styles each give us a different impression of what exists around us. Every work of art in this show proves that reality can be transformed into abstraction, interpreted as illusion and that that illusion can become just as real as what inspired it in the first place.
