Hands, Head and Heart will feature fiber sculpture by Tami Fuller and oil paintings by Joanne Goellner in the Rotunda Gallery at the Center. Fuller and Goellner are both artists based in East Aurora, NY. With this showing of works, Fuller and Goellner ask,  “Do you lead with your head or your heart?” Do you lead with your head or your heart?
We use the work of our hands and our mediums to balance “head and heart,” the intersection between cognitive approach and intuitive process. At times, we may identify more strongly with one over or other. Different circumstances call for different approaches, and it can be difficult to know which is more appropriate. While these approaches speak different languages, both will guide us, once we decide which method serves us best.
The Head and the Heart is a body of work consisting of pairs of themed paintings, one created with a cognitive approach and the other following an intuitive process (head vs. heart), in oil and cold wax medium on paper.
The Working Heart is a collection of abstract woven work that expresses what we hold and what happens when we allow our intuitive process to push against the bounds of a material framework – the overflow. While the work appears to be wholly heart-based, it relies on the framework that supports it to give it strength, much like our heart-based processes rely on our heads to balance them.
