So… Alphabet Gallery – what’s that all about? What was the inspiration behind it?
The artwork is based on fifteen basic shapes – circles cut systematically – that can be rotated to create all 26 letters of the alphabet. When we tour galleries, art has to be observed at arm’s length. The idea with the fifteen canvases or fifteen prints was that the viewer can manipulate the work by rotating pieces to discover more letters.
How long have you been creating art?
I cannot remember not creating artwork.

Campbell Maloney’s play on words speaks to the eye…
Vastu is pleased to welcome two artists from the DC area for our current exhibition.
Vastu is pleased to bring back Campbell Maloney for another show. Campbell chose fifteen basic shapes – circles cut systematically – that can be rotated to create all 26 letters of the alphabet. The elegant brilliance of the formula is matched by the striking visual impact of its result. The shapes are arranged and oriented as solitaires, words or collections, equal in size or scaled proportionally and over-imposed. The designs evoke flatness and depth simultaneously.
Maryanne Pollock‘s second show at Vastu uses an expressive layering of sand, sumi ink and paint to evoke ephemeral micro and macrocosmic worlds. Intricate brain wave patterns, aerial views of deserts and cityscapes are alluded to and ultimately imbued with a luminous palette. Plein air studies of Cairo, Istanbul, Paris, Washington, Utah and Rehoboth Beach inform her paintings. These boldly abstract inner-landscapes are simultaneously energetic and serene with pure transcendent color.
