Toil and Spin: New Sculpture
June 23 - July 11, 1998
The six sculptures and two drawings in this exhibition are the outcome of the artist's decision to work with three subjects — lamb, grapes and necklaces. A blend of imagery from the Old Testament's "Song of Solomon" was chosen because the objects are familiar to us, yet loaded with meaning. Spare to obsessive manipulations of material fuse in each sculpture, creating hybrids that are both formal and baroque in character. The repeated motifs link each work into a curious group.
Opening Reception: Saturday, June 27, 5-7pm
