I'm pleased to be included among many talented artists including Frida Fjellman,
David King, Erica Rosenfeld, Brett Swenson, and Benjamin Wright in "Paracosm: New Worlds in Glass," curated by Suzanne Peck and Eric O'Connner, at Norte Maar Gallery in Cypress Hill, Brooklyn. "Paracosm" will run from Sept. 11 - Oct. 23rd, 2016. There will be a public opening Sept. 11 from 6-8. More formation can be found here.
Except from the press release:
"The alchemical microcosm that Erica Rosenfeld constructs in her “Twilight Cloud Scene” posits a rebirth both charred and radiant. Frida Fjellman creates transgressive whimsy evoking naïve wisdom in a group of her colorful glass “Lemmings”. Ben Wright’s water-like droplets, “Micro Fictions”, summon otherness in a bricolage of cultural self-reflection. In his pseudo-scientific experiment “Standards of Measurement, 1 Liter”, Brett Swenson honors the myth of the furnace as uterus, capturing the divine birth of onyx inside a contradictory host — laboratory glass. “Sisypuss”, David King’s pre-cinematic device, performs a GIF’s eternal return using this internet meme effused with humorous desperation, dark levity, and material intelligence. Kim Harty’s “Visceral Topographies”, a series of printed scars wrought by glass, express the animus of glass and present the body as canvas. These artists, with disparate methods and practices in glass, are united in their exploration of the unknown known — new universes both within and without."
