Gips is showing work from two new series: Wilted: Lessons from Nature, and Nature Squared.  Like in much of her past work, Gips casts a sharp focus on details from the natural world. She selects small objects and specimens—flowers, algae, rocks, shells, wood, and found metals—and scans them at high resolution. For Wilted, she has chosen flowers as their blossoms fade. Rather than bemoaning their decline, the work celebrates their ongoing beauty as they age and seed the future. Nature Squared comprises triptychs of 8 x 8 inch prints mounted on wood panels. The images often begin as such tiny segments of the originals that they become painterly abstractions of colors and textures. Gips began visiting Wellfleet in 1969, lived in the Paine Hollow area for 20 years, and now returns frequently from her current home in New Bedford.

The small paintings in Lefevre’s Humans and Habitations range from expressively figurative to an abstract sense of place. Her palette is subtle and inviting, often dominated by sweet tans and grays. Many of the paintings have a mysterious luminosity, seeming to glow from within, corresponding to Lefevre’s effort to reveal inner dramas. She says that the work in this show “has been driven by my response to world events and by the emotions and psychology of human interaction.”
