Twist and shape
November marks Marilyn Hoback Cronk exhibiting “Form and Flexibility” in the Santa Maria Public Library’s Shepard Hall, 421 McClelland.
The former executive director of Solvang’s Elverhoj Museum of History and Art and current member of the Artists Guild of the Santa Ynez Valley has a particular interest in the shapes of horses and Spanish architectural forms.
Her latest endeavors have involved what she calls “minimal art,” some of which will be on display, revealing her work in “rich surface textures and a minimum of composition.”
“It seems to be all about surface texture at this point,” she said in a press release. “Seeing the richness of aged patina on metal, rusted surfaces, old paint peeling to reveal layers of colors beneath has been a jumping off point for recent work. To get this effect, I apply various papers to build up texture on the canvas, and overlay with transparent glazes.”
