>> "solarium" by william lamson at storm king art center
Solarium functions as both an isolated hillside sanctuary and, as Lamson has put it, an "experimental greenhouse." Caramelized sugar is baked into the windows of Solarium, tinting each a unique amber shade. All plants create sugars through photosynthesis; those inside Solarium use light that has been filtered through sugars, a circular process. Weather permitting, Solarium is designed to be viewed from afar, where it appears as a jewel-like object, and from within, for the experience of its unusual plays of light.
>> color/forms by ivelisse jimenez & doreen mccarthy at cuchifritos gallery
This exhibition juxtaposes the work of two artists who are committed to abstraction, and particularly to its exploration in terms of the intersection of color, form, and medium. Working in fabric, plastic, vinyl, Plexiglas and other assorted materials, Ivelisse Jimenez and Doreen McCarthy both approach the solid forms of geometry, the patterning of abstraction and the simplicity of line in related ways.
