The Glen Echo Park Partnership is pleased to present Jeff Cooper and Rebecca Hirsh: Crossing Paths. This exhibition pairs two-dimensional work by Rebecca Hirsh alongside three-dimensional sculptures by Jeff Cooper. Cooper admires the ever-changing properties of wood – always shrinking or expanding, darkening, lightening, or aging. Rather than carving from one piece of wood, Cooper assembles pieces of wood, combining the grains and figures. His sculptures attract the eye and invite the viewer to examine the details. Originally a painter, Rebecca Hirsh explores the medium of wood for this exhibition. Using what she can salvage from Cooper’s studio, Hirsh constructs her collages by painting the pieces of wood and arranging them. She is inspired by color, shapes, and lines, and how they occupy space. Hirsh’s wood collages and Cooper’s wood sculptures reflect the influence each artist has on the other, truly crossing paths.
