Artworks by Solange Roberdeau and Shannon Brinkley will be displayed in an exhibition titled Impressions that opens on 5 May.

According to the statement from Arcade gallery, Roberdeau and Brinkley both visited Fayoum in February and during their stay during their stay at the Fayoum Winter Residency reflected on the concept of an impression; a feeling, an inkling or an opinion of something formed quickly, if almost by intuition.

The exhibition will showcase drawings on wood and paper, where “each artist considers her relationship to this concept and asks the question of how she might capture something inherently temporal and translate it through drawing,” as the exhibition statement reads.

Brinkley presents a series of watercolour drawings that relate to her experience of blood-sugar levels, and thinks of it as a way to reflect landscapes within the body.

For her series, Roberdeau looks into the relationship of pottery craftsmen with their land, and in general a human process that is tied to the environment where it takes place.

Brinkley is an American-South African artist currently living in Cairo where she teaches art at the Cairo American College.

She holds a a Bachelor of Fine Arts at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a Master of Arts in Art Education from the Maryland Institute College of Art, where she is also currently pursuing a Master of Fine Arts degree.

Last year she held her exhibition (r)evolve at Arcade Gallery.

Roberdeau is an American visual artist and art educator with a BFA in Printmaking from the Rhode Island School of Design, and an MFA in Studio Art from the Maryland Institute College of Art.

Her work was shown in U.S.A and in France, she has led several art workshops, and was a recipient of artist residencies Roberdeau has also been the recipient of artist’s residencies including at the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation, Bethany, CT and the Helene Wurlitzer Foundation, Taos, NM. She is based in Northern California.
