PORTLAND INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT PRESENTS AN EXHIBITION OF WHITNEY NYE’S COLLAGES AND PAINTINGS


The Port of Portland will exhibit Oregon artist, Whitney Nye, at The Portland International Airport, B Concourse 7200 NE Airport Way Portland, OR 97218. Opens November 1, and runs through May 1, 2014

The passing traveler may take pause and observe the myriad of intricate pieces and patterned marks that make up this exhibition of detailed artwork.

In this exhibition of selected work, Nye demonstrates her patience and dexterity with various mediums, including old sewing patterns, reused mirror, salvaged metal, paint and multitudes of paper snippets. Nye considers and questions the lost “connection” to the act of making things at home, and how we are presently “reconnecting” to those abundant creative resources, (i.e. the DIY movement) and realizing how fundamental this revival is to our local communities and country.

“… Whitney Nye's large collages on panels are abstract, geometric patterns brought to life with color and texture. Although meticulously crafted using thousands of dots in "One-Tenth" or thin rectangular panels in "Counterpane," these pieces are the antithesis of cold abstraction. One senses the human hand here, creating an ideal balance of subtlety and sensation.”
- Brian Libby for The Oregonian

Venture Art Opening

A working artist in the Pacific Northwest since the early 1990s, Whitney Nye brings a uniquely thematic approach to art making. Each body of work has aspects of chance and new discovery. Nye's previous collages and crafted flags are described as 'making order out of disorder', where her new body of work, titled Venture, is more aptly described, through painting, as an abstract view of life's order.
