Sacral Geometry 

When: April 17-27 2019
Printmaking has its dyed-in-the wool traditionalists, and while there’s merit to employing limited means, it can be limiting. Carrie Ann Plank, a longtime traditional printmaker, is certainly unafraid to venture boldly where no one has gone before, adapting new digital media to her purposes and her expanding vision. She is currently Artist in Residence at Local Language, which is exhibiting her mixed-media print series, Interference/Confluence, which investigates the interplay between visual information systems, context, and meaning. Her dazzling geometric works feature motifs deriving from scientific reality: electromagnetic wave patterns, the halftone dots of commercial lithography, and cymatics, the study of patterns created by vibrations: where waves are in sync, they double in amplitude; where they’re in opposition, they cancel each other out. Plank creates what could be called secular mandalas, gorgeously colored and patterned, and resembling stained-glass cathedral rose windows and crystals and gemstones, by combining drawing, woodblock-carving, and CNC digital routing.
