Washington Post Review

Refresh XI 
“Organic forms abound in “Refresh XI,” a group showcase for Long View Gallery’s regular artists and the venue’s first exhibition in nearly a year. Susan Goldman’s immaculate woodcuts overlap iris-like rounds; Eve Stockton’s prints elegantly distill sea, sky and woods; and Sondra N. Arkin’s deep-focus drawing-paintings submerge bubbles and strands in seemingly aquatic settings. Yet what links these three and the other participants is less their use of nature motifs and more their exquisite craft. The art at Long View may not be thematically provocative, but it’s always beautifully composed and finished.

The gallery tends to show work that’s glossy, symmetrical, hard-edge and abstract, or nearly so. (Among the representational exceptions are Colin Winterbottom’s D.C.-centric photographs and Michael Crossett’s collages of local cultural landmarks, although the latter are far from documentary.) Many of the contributors employ wax, resin or glitter and share a taste for bold colors and hypnotic motifs. With such works as Gian Garofalo’s thick, near-liquid stripe paintings and Kaori Takamura’s assemblages of cookie-shaped painted-wood pieces, “Refresh XI’s” wares often evoke a psychedelic toy store.”

Refresh XI Through Sept. 30 at Long View Gallery, 1234 Ninth St. NW

Washington Post Review

February 20, 2020

“Although Eve Stockton’s pictures are unusually large for woodcut prints, their scale suits her subjects, which include sea, sky and sun. “Origin Stories,” the Alexandria artist’s show at McLean Project for the Arts, presents about 40 pictures, among them variations on such archetypes as “Waves” or “Clouds.” Immaculately made, the prints often feature repeated patterns and a powerful centeredness. Metallic silver ink evokes energy and light, frequently contrasting rich oceanic or atmospheric blues.

Some of the prints have a clear vantage point. The “Woodland Landscape” series gazes up through the trees, representing that perspective so strongly that viewers may find themselves craning their necks. Other outlooks are more ambiguous, suggesting both macro and micro views. The range of vistas underscores the show’s title. Stockton’s seascapes could depict today’s oceans or the primordial soup that preceded them; her “Bloom” series portrays flowers, but the buds also resemble cells.

Stockton regularly exhibits new prints at Long View Gallery, but this selection includes some older ones, as well as a few sculptures. Among the latter are stone pieces whose streamlined curves are akin to the woodcuts’ simplified ripples. There are waves as well in a floor sculpture, which is surrounded by stones from a Nova Scotia beach. Stockton used to be an architect, a background implied by both this structure and her largest prints, each of them a whole environment. Whether working in one or three dimensions, Stockton conjures a strong sense of place.”

Washington Post Review

“Eve Stockton’s “The Rosie Project” arrays casts of female elbows to celebrate strong women. (“Rosie” is a homage to Rosie the Riveter.) Placed on woodcut prints that are square and silvery, the white plaster forms exhort women “to keep their elbows out — and sharp,” notes Stockton’s statement.”

Washington Post Review

May 11, 2018

“A few of Stockton’s prints are based on triangle-based patterns, but she derives most of her motifs from nature. Hives, waves, petals and starbursts dominate this selection of the Alexandria artist’s work. The repeated images sometimes pit platinum tones against shades of blue, but are often in a narrow range of metallic shimmers. Eye-catchingly luminous and large enough to immerse the viewer’s attention, Stockton’s pictures are as mesmerizing as glints of sunlight on a rippling pond.”

Primal Power: Eve Stockton evokes the beauty of nature in her bold, graphic woodcut prints

May/June 2015 — Home & Design Magazine
Growing up in rural Chesterland, Ohio, Eve Stockton loved exploring the deep woods and environs near her home. The house, overlooking farm fields, was cantilevered above a ravine that led to a small series of caves. “It was really magical,” recalls Stockton. “I would go out and play for most of the day. It seemed so natural.”

Those early adventures are much more than distant memories for the artist. Drawing from a lifetime of outdoor observations, her large-scale prints—vivid seascapes, hazy landscapes, imagined stirrings of life—conjure the primal power and robust beauty of nature. Inspiration has also come from printed images collected over years. “I’ve always been so interested in nature and exploring imagery,” she says, adding enthusiastically, “Woodcut printing is a brilliant medium for what I want to express.”

Robert Brown Gallery celebrates 30 years in D.C.

June 28, 2012 — The Washington Post

Some 25 blocks east, Long View Gallery is showing work that has much in common with Kentridge’s and Nash’s. Eve Stockton is a printmaker who uses a traditional form, wood block, but on an unusually large scale. Inspired in part by visits to Nova Scotia, the Connecticut artist crafts views of nature, both macro and micro. Her painstaking technique and some visual motifs, such as waves and branches, recall great Japanese printmakers such as Hokusai (the subject of a recent Sackler Gallery exhibition). But Stockton doesn’t emulate her Japanese precursors’ dramatic compositions, preferring all-over designs that feature repeated forms. She often focuses on modest objects, such as seed pods, or depicts cellular patterns that could represent nature in extreme closeup. If Stockton were to take Mount Fuji as a subject, she’d probably fix on its tiniest details.
