Letha Wilson: Folds and Faults

December 17, 2022 - February 18, 2023
Higher Pictures Generation, 16 Main Street
Brooklyn, NY 11201 United States
+ Google Map

The Landscape Objects on view continue Wilson’s exploration of the interlocking relationships between sculpture, photography, and our natural environment. The sculptures are made from a carefully limited set of materials: a metal plate hinged with industrial fabric provides the substrate for foliage, stone, earth, and sky photographed in color. Wilson’s photographs, printed onto cut sheets of copper, steel, or brass, are made to fold and bend in countless ways.

The visual languages specific…

Platform Project Space, 20 Jay Street, #319
Brooklyn, NY 11201 United States
+ Google Map

Platform Project Space presents a two-person exhibition of Allison Gildersleeve and Tracy Miller's work, who paint their surroundings by overlaying the repetition of their days into a single frame. Tables littered with beer cans, coffee cups, salt shakers, and berry baskets tell a story of domestic delirium. Gildersleeve’s and Miller’s work is the antithesis of still life; instead, their paintings are full of restless agitation and the volatile nature of daydreams.

In Travelogue, Alum Member Lauren Simkin Berke presents a new body of mixed media work on paper, in both flat and folded forms. Begun during the first year of the COVID-19 pandemic, the series follows two people as they travel, at first to known places, and then to places created from the artist’s imagination.

Ellyn Weiss: Rage Births Riot

February 11 - March 12
A.I.R. Gallery, 155 Plymouth Street
Brooklyn, NY 11201 United States
+ Google Map

National Member Ellyn Weiss presents a new body of work, including paintings in dye, ink, and spray enamel on raw canvas, in Rage Births Riot. The series began in the fall of 2021, immediately after the Supreme Court allowed the Texas abortion ban to take effect; it reflects the artist’s continuing rage at this unprincipled attack on the basic human rights of American women and their families. The rawness of the work matches the rawness of the anger.
