Lauren Fensterstock: Scrying
Scrying, a solo exhibition of new mixed media sculpture by Lauren Fensterstock. The artist's newest works combine chromed and rubberized shell work with mouth blown and cold worked glass, conceptually questioning the current "selfie" obsession and a possible link between this and past social obsessions.
Barbara Earl Thomas: Caught in the Matrix
For her exhibition Caught in the MAtrix, Thomas chose the medium of Tyvek for the symbolic and practical properties of the building material. She describes the piece and the process as an homage to Jacob Lawrence who often referenced African American “builders” in his work. In this these works, you’ll see the bodies descending through space.
Bisa Butler: Shattered
For Shattered, Bisa Butler interviewed her subjects and their parents to understand their plans and dreams for the future. The children were asked for a cast-off piece of clothing, the fabric of which Butler then incorporates in the quilted portrait of that child, along with recycled traditional African Mud Cloth.
