transFORM Gallery Provides Recologie With Wooden Shipping Pallets


Due to transFORM Gallery’s sensible saving, we were able to provide Recologie with wooden shipping pallets, which are now featured in their newly completed restaurant.

Recologie is an eco-friendly establishment located in New Rochelle that focuses on the rise in global sustainability. The restaurant, which also serves as a gallery concentrates on using materials sourced from local artists and designers. Habitat for Humanity Restore Westchester and Recologie’s contractor, Mark Harrigan, worked to convert the wooden pallets into functional dining slabs for their new back room.

Check out the transformation of simple wooden pallets to handy tabletops.

Stephanie Franks Headshot
“My work crosses easily between non-representation (“abstraction”), representation and states in between. The representational works carry all the ingredients of the abstract works apart from the fact of there being varying degrees of recognizable imagery. Most of my representational works depend on the act of close observation of a still life, interior space, figure or the like. When I most palpably feel the physicality of my own self in space in relation to that which I am looking at, it becomes fodder for my work. While the representational works depict recognizable elements, they also draw on close observation of negative spaces. These negative spaces (or spaces in-between things – including the space between me and those things) do not lend themselves to being “named” but they are “forms” in their own right, charged and full of energy. I strive to give voice to this energy through color, form, composition, brush stroke and all the stuff that goes into the process of making art.
I am interested in the relationships of elements in space and how those elements rhythmically flow amongst one another and the entire rectangle; as in the way dancers on stage embrace the space (and work off of it as well as one another) with their bodies in motion. That’s one of the things I want to make happen on the two dimensional surface. Whether my work is generated from direct observation or riffing off of a work of a great master (as in “After PB, in Reverse”) or a more free flowing play of color marks (as in some of the Watercolor on Frosted Mylar works), I respond to where the work leads me; and in so doing, my process can be at once a terrifying, joyous and ever-enlivening adventure.”

Stephanie Franks explores linear elements and painted forms. Each painting of Stephanie Franks might be compared to a journey, a voyage of discovery. The journey begins as paint is applied. A sense of tension permeates the whisper of atmospheric space, which is locked into place by line, form and color. Painted forms and linear elements define place and speak of the struggle engaged in during their execution.

Stephanie Franks work includes paintings, drawings, watercolors and prints as well as collages.
She has exhibited at countless venues.

“I like to paint with the camera. Through photography, I engage intimately with my surroundings and play with various techniques to create attractive and intriguing compositions that trigger emotions and contemplation.

In my Dreamscapes series, I use reflections and movement to generate a poetic effect. I discover reflections on frozen lakes, bronze sculptures, objects in a flea market or windows — everyday reflections that are often overlooked. The different surfaces, such as ice, metal, glass and water, become a medium to expose shapes, highlight textures, and show multiple layers of reality. I am more interested in evoking a mood and a sense of wonder than in documenting life objectively. Viewers are deprived of the concrete, straight-forward visuals and are encouraged to get involved in a more subjective exploration.

The creative process occurs while photographing. I do not use the computer to transform the image. I have found inspiration in some of my favorite impressionist, surrealist and abstract painters.”

Born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Evelyn Sadler currently lives with her family in New York. Sadler showcases the strange and snowy world while specializing in “playing with reflections to create an alternative reality.”
