Color Play Show at Loading Dock Gallery

February 19, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

As we enter a new year, artists Tarja Cockell and Brooke Lambert celebrate with Color Play, a new show at the Loading Dock Gallery. This show combines Cockell’s quilts and textile collages and Lambert’s painted collagraphs, both of which are saturated with rich color.
Tarja Cockell uses dyeing, painting, and other mixed media to create intricate, textured surfaces in her textiles. She often adds stitching to enhance organic shapes and textures for her pieces.
“I want to cherish the playfulness of color,” Cockell says. “In this work, I explore
abstract colorations and dreamscapes with a hint of reality and a lot of space for imagination.”
Brooke Lambert makes original collagraphs inspired by the ocean and the light within it — the light coming out of the cracks and crevices on the ocean floor, within the waves and life beneath its surface. “Even on the darkest days, the ocean has light,”
she says, “and this light, for me, represents hope.”
Both artists agree that, during this difficult time in the world, it is important to hold on to those moments that give us hope, appreciate the beauty in nature, and share art. It is their hope that the colors and exploration of form in their work resonates emotionally with those who view them.
