Mater Natura: Jylian Gustlin at Gallery MAR

Park City
Jan. 27 – Feb. 15

Reception: Friday, Jan. 27, 6-9 pm

“Mater Natura”: the Latin Words directly translate to mother nature. 

Mother Nature is where Gustlin communes, uncovering inspiration and divine wisdom from the trees, rocks, and earth below her feet – exploring the natural elements around her brings order and ideas, profoundly influencing her artwork. With a clear connection to the environment around her, Gustlin intuitively and distinctly produces her famed Fibonacci series, with knowledgeable and logical perspective on the endless variety of interpretations. The result is a magical and precise, abstract masterpiece. 

Circles, morphing in size and color, appear in numerous places – all thoughtfully designed and created in computer programs that Gustlin has invented for her Fibonacci series. Lines of paint and mixed media drip down the panel and are revealed through excavations into the layers. This creates an overall aging effect, like crumpled paper or worn fabric and leather.
