Finesse sets up a dialogue between two artists, Lee Bethel and Nicole Ison, exploring the shared nuances of the mediums paper and porcelain.
Lee Bethel is an artist working with paper. Drawing on a love of the material, she cuts, weaves and manipulates paper in a unique manner utilizing shadow and reflection to create complex patterns and peripheral lightscapes.
Nicole Ison, a ceramic artist who works primarily with porcelain, creates delicate yet durable objects. The combination of the chosen medium’s translucency and Ison’s repetitive mark making similarly creates a play on light and shadow.
