“the fugue is metaphorical; its purpose is to reveal connections between seemingly unlike things.  Its method is to develop an idea in never precisely the same way.  Its character is to demonstrate relationships, unveiled both in terms of new ideas born of old, but also in counterpoint with the old.  The fugal essence is experienced in discovery of the new to be of the same "stuff" as the old”. Timothy A. Smith: “Anatomy of a Fugue”.

 

Theodora Varnay Jones in her installation of drawings, photographs, and sculpture combines works from earlier years and also recently made on site at the Lucid Art Foundation, and in her studio in San Francisco. She says: ”My work always has been about the same line of concerns, but all of the means and approaches I have taken have changed or shifted significantly.” In this exhibition she brings together some of the different angles of approach she has taken, shifting their focus by recontextualizing their position. Her meditations on the ambiguity of vision and perception fluctuate between three dimensional objects and flat surfaces. She explores various combinations of form, texture, space, and movement; branching out and returning enriched, in yet another form, to her main interests in relativity, transparency and time. Theodora Varnay Jones received an MFA from the Academy of Fine Arts in Budapest then moved to the US where she is now based in San Francisco. She has been a recipient of numerous grants and awards including the Artists’ Fellowship Inc. NY, Art Matters Inc. NY, the California Art Council, the Jerome Foundation, CA, and the Barbara and Henry Miller Foundation MA, and was a finalist for SF Museum of Modern Art’s SECA Award. Her works have been exhibited in museums, universities and galleries in the United States, Europe. Asia and South America, and are in numerous significant private and public collections worldwide. This is her 12th solo show with Don Soker. The Artist will talk about her work on Saturday, May 28, 4 – 6 pm.
