Bold-and-expressive can cancel out delicate-and-nuanced, or complement it perfectly.

In the current exhibition at Grimshaw-Gudewicz Art Gallery on the campus of Bristol Community College, Catherine Bertulli's explosive sculptural canvases dramatically attract, but Maxwell van Pelt's quietly articulated wire installations state their own ideas just as effectively.

Bertulli creates her own canvases in advance of creating her own art. Evolving from her earlier work as a figurative painter, in this installation she first treats industrial aluminum foil surfaces, and then paints and polyurethanes them.

Catherine Bertulli's current body of work is an expression of her evolution from traditional processes such as watercolor and gouache. Nonetheless, those experiences inform her approach to her new work. Bertulli etches and scores, folds and crinkles aluminum sheets into columnar forms, spirals, and tubes, all of which breathe a vibrant luminosity.
