A thought-provoking title on a work of art, or an entire exhibition, may cause viewers to look more closely and think more deeply. That is certainly the case with Rose Umerlik’s solo show of abstract paintings, collectively titled “The Human Experience,” at Northern Daughters in Vergennes. The vaguely organic shapes and flat planes of color, created with graphite and oil on panel, are by no means representational. Only the complex layering and subtle interactions of elements suggest the meaning Umerlik seems to intend. But the artist, who lives in Jeffersonville, gives us satisfying compositions of line and form regardless of connotation.
