Edwina Hawley Milner and Mayumi Nishida  
June 17-August 31, 2017
Artist Reception: Saturday, June 17, 5-8pm

April Price Projects Gallery is pleased to announce, illuminexus a visual art exhibition of four artists featuring a confluence of diverse aesthetic sensibilities that find commonality in a fascination with light and color.  iIlluminexus transcribes the circle of light that brings us together.
  Marietta Patricia Leis will present her series of abstract paintings sourced from her time at the Gullkistan Artist Residency in Iceland. These works find inspiration in the contrast between hours of winter darkness, and the splendid display of Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights. Leis is a multimedia Albuquerque artist of international repute.

 Edwina Hawley Milner applies metal leaf to brilliantly hued paintings, based upon natural forms and organic abstraction. Her work evokes late Byzantine minimalism and the Japanese tradition of kintsugi, in which broken pottery is repaired with gold. Milner lives and works in Santa Fe, NM and was instrumental in founding the NM State Committee of the National Museum of Women in the Arts.
 Mayumi Nishida is an installation artist with a particular focus on light, and interactive spaces. In her Inverted Pyramid pieces she employs silk, Japan’s first industrial material, to build light capturing structures that question hierarchy.  Plenum, originally exhibited in Osaka, Japan is an evolving collaboration with her husband, Jon Carver combining silkscreen imagery, iridescent transparency, and optical illusion. The couple lives in Lamy, NM.
