Betty Calabria

A compelling element of form is line. Line reveals ideas of motion, direction andconnection. Nature abounds with examples of line from the dynamism of lightening to the lassitude of illness. Line salts our language, bottom lines, party lines, time lines, pickup lines and fine lines. Lines demarcate boundaries and systematize traffic and travel. Wavelengths characterize our knowledge of light, color and sound. Lines carry and convey energy essentials of water, oil and electricity.
One cannot consider networks, real or virtual, without lines. Calabria's painting and sculpture explore interests in form, particularly the element of line. Paintings investigate calligraphic line with strips, streaks and strokes of color that affirm dynamism and direction.
Sculptures enliven space with lines of steel and shadow. The dialogue between the two and three dimensional work is ongoing. Guideline: Go offline and experience the real work
