Processing 'space/place'

“So Here So There’’ (encaustic on wooden panels), by Barbara Ellmann,   at the Hampden Gallery at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, starting April 7.    The gallery says that Ms. Ellmann's large grids of encaustic paintings explore how we process and catalog our visual experience of space/place by “using varying degrees of abstraction and kinetic juxtapositions of form, color and pattern to suggest fleeting impressions, connections and memories.’’
