FORT WORTH, Texas -  brand 10 art space presents Once and Again which runs from November 3 through December 8, 2012 with an opening reception to be held on Saturday November 3, 2012 from 5 - 9pm. Once and Again highlights the works of artists Rebecca Carter, Teresa Rafidi and Linda Ridgway with selected works in video, photography, drawing and sculpture revolving around the idea written by Thomas Wolfe, “You can never go home again”; that memory, time, perception and experience change the familiarity and complexity of home.


Rebecca Carter’s work explores states of intimacy and alienation by engaging in processes of appropriation, tracing, erasing, digital glitches and reconstructing. “No place like home” a video projection, appropriates the iconic Dorothy’s shoes from The Wizard of Oz movie images and reflects upon them with distance and dexterity referencing both a personal history as well as a collective one.


Photographs by Teresa Rafidi are ordinary interior places that shift attention away from subject matter and illuminate the space by hinting at a figurative presence that is not always seen.  Her photographs contain a sense of altered reality, creating a quiet image that contains both presence and absence simultaneously while triggering nostalgia and reverence.


The subjects of Linda Ridgway’s prints and drawing and sculpture are directly related to childhood memories of her own mother reading from Robert Frost’s writings. Her work acknowledges and celebrates a path of self-revelation with text-based works of crocheted lace transformed through the print process resulting in eloquent and poignant statements about time and experience.


Once and Again is organized by the brand 10/and x art space founders and team of collaborative artists/curators and they are: Heagan Bayles, Christine Bisetto, Matthew Clark and Kathy Webster.
