The “between” is a hallowed sanctuary that dwells in the interstices—between people, nature, our contemplations, the materials we employ, and the art of execution. The allure of the “between” endures as an ethereal, unspoken force that forces relationships to take their first breath. It is the indescribable adhesive that both unites and separates us. The visions of an idea coalesce, and it is only through the “between” that these fragments join to form a single, harmonious unity—like an artwork.
Within this exhibition, Tappan delves into the intricate connections among materials, individuals, colors and the very components of art. The “between” serves as a canvas for subjective truths, where the space that separates ideas and objects harbors diverse interpretations, unique to each observer. This concept stands as a reflection of individual experiences, molding the essence of every relationship. With these works, Tappan artists embark on a journey to delve deep into the profound significance of the “between.”
