Back to the Present

Revitalized modernism is highlighted at Havu and Edge.

The forms are arranged in tight groupings around a meandering path of open floor. This was a necessity, of course, because viewers need to cut through the installation to make the unrewarding journey to the spaces beyond.

Chicoyne's approach to installation -- using almost identical elements and similar colors -- connects her to well-known Denver artist Judith Cohn, whose installations have mostly been shown at Spark Gallery. Also linking the two artists is a firm basis in the old-fashioned functional-vessel tradition. Pamela Olson, whose incredible cast-porcelain installations are currently on view at the Arvada Center, is another artist with a similar style.
