Panta rhei: everything flows - New Paintings by Eileen Starr Moderbacher

ArtZone 461 Gallery is pleased to announce two new concurrent solo shows for Jeong Im Yi and Eileen Starr Moderbacher. These are only the second solo shows with each of these artists at ArtZone 461 Gallery, now approaching its fifth anniversary.

Eileen Starr Moderbacher’s new series uses the Pony Express as a metaphor to comment on how we’ve arrived at our civilization’s current condition. The Pony Express was a 19th century horseback mail delivery and relay system. It lasted only 18 months but is considered to have furthered European, Puritan and Manifest Destiny philosophies. It set in motion an emphasis on ‘faster, bigger, better, never stop’, concepts that remain constants in our postmodern cultural landscape.

Moderbacher explains, “My work has shifted to a concern about the environment, global climate change, extinction of species - palm trees growing on icebergs; these become natural and logical to my way of thinking.” Subject matter is not the only new element in these works: The artist is “Consciously choosing to combine patterns I create and take the work one step closer to abstraction. There is a flattening of the picture plane and a letting-go of the horizon line; I am free to move in a direction that allows me to experience what the paint can do - letting it guide me out of preconceived notions and approaches.”

The artist received a Bachelor in Fine Arts, Printmaking, from the Art Institute of Chicago and her Masters in Painting from the California College of the Arts in San Francisco in 2004.
