2021 is starting off on a very, very high note.
An exhibition of husband and wife artists Cary and Barbara Wolinsky is opening on January 16th at the Pucker Gallery in Boston. The exhibition is titled “More Than Portraits” and includes photographs by Cary and mixed-media boxes by Barbara.
I’ve known the couple (and their talented filmmaker son Yari) for several decades. I had been a huge fan of Cary’s work for quite some time before I had the opportunity to see Barbara’s work. I was floored and immediately became a fan of her work as well. The fact that they are a husband/wife couple, as well as accomplished artists in different media, make this exhibition unique in many ways.
Cary states “for me, making a portrait is a collaborative moment of trust. You present yourself to me, the stranger with a camera, with the expectation that I will deliver...what? An image you project of yourself? Perhaps, but, at its best, making a portrait opens the door on our stories and our common experiences.
Barbara states “a box usually starts with a single object that grabs my attention. It may suggest a story, a place, a memory, or a dream. One object calls to another and, together, they require a world in which they can speak. A box assembles like characters in a play. Once I sense the plot, there is excitement.”
A free WebinART "Deux Arts: The Art Creations of Barbara and Cary Wolinsky," will take place on Saturday, 30 January at 1PM EST.
