Piece Work is a group exhibition featuring five artists who assemble significant paintings, sculptures and installations from a cumulation of smaller parts. Cordy Ryman (NY) presents meticulously stacked wall sculptures made up of smaller, painted, wood blocks, often cannibalized from past site-specific installations. Dominic Terlizzi’s (Baltimore) elaborate paintings reveal a multitude of cast objects and sculptural practices at work in the surface of his images. Rachel Hayes (MO) is well-known for her gossamer fabric pieces that function as painting, sculpture and transformative installation. Her concentric geometries contain panels of varying opacity, catching the light and incorporating the space seen through the work. Sun You’s (NY) works are made up of a lexicon of smaller, concise, abstract forms, and like Terlizzi, blur the boundary between painting and sculpture within the rectangle. Christine Tillman (Baltimore) uses color to abstract and unify the array of natural objects that make up her sculpture. Tillman arranges these forms as specimens, examining collection and intervention as methods of making. Referencing both quilting and industrial production, Piece Work encourages viewers to consider the exhibited artworks both for their entirety and the intricacies of their parts.
The exhibition will be on view in Silber Art Gallery and open to the public during gallery hours from November 5th - December 21st, 2018.
