"Nancy Hilliard Joyce noticed an overlap in subject matter with fellow Asheville artist, Grant Penny – planting the seed for this two person show. While their subject matter may sometimes overlap, their styles and mediums are decidedly different.
Nancy creates distinctly gestural paintings using everything from acrylic paint and oil-based pen to hammer and nails.
Grant is a paper collage artist using handmade/dyed papers to create works with a very minimal approach and style.
Together, the artists have selected six subjects of which they will each create a piece. Some subjects selected are drawn from previous, overlapping works, while others are new and interesting explorations for them both. The result will be six pairings of “intentional subjects” - plus a large, truly collaborative thirteenth piece that both artists will create together.
The title, “Intentionally Subjective,” lends itself to a double meaning. The first being that obviously the subjects of each pair were chosen with intent. The second being, as we all know so well, art is very subjective and this side-by-side showing will certainly spark some interesting (and no-doubt subjective) thoughts, feelings, and conversations."
