Artists Statement on Reciprocity
Stacy Bogdonoff and Teri Figliuzzi- Walking and Taking, Seeing and Snapping
Bogdonoff and Figliuzzi have been friends for many years and share common interests in art, natural materials, the thrill of a flea market hunt, and being outdoors. Avid urban and rural walkers, they have spent time together in both places, exchanging ideas and lively conversation, pointing out all that captures the eye, and noting the memorable with photography. These photographs become visual diaries, their personal sketchbooks. They both, then, use those images to create very different bodies of work. Bogdonoff takes the photo as inspiration for strong, woven sculptural forms that reference shelter and home, and Figliuzzi creates intimate, delicate, haunting images of nature in all its fragility. Influences from each other are seen as emotional threads throughout their final pieces. Same walks, shared talk, similar photographs, different art.
Artists Bio for Teri Filiuzzi
Color, texture, weaving and photography are my passions. Gathering plants and flowers in all stages of their life cycles, I create assemblages on fabric tinted with botanical dyes. Each step of the process is captured with a photograph. Selected images are then printed on rice paper, spliced, reassembled, woven and stitched with metallic thread. Working with the single subject matter of foliage, from bloom to decay, has brought me much joy, and a deep appreciation for the perseverance of nature and its healing power. My intent is to produce work that brings focus to all stages of life, both tangible and ethereal.
