Opening Reception: Saturday, August 3 from 5pm to 8pm
Two girls sit on a dark windowsill in The Room. They are looking across the street into the window of another apartment in which a figure is – undressing? One of the girls is half-hidden by a curtain, the other has on headphones. This alternation of presence and absence, inner and outer, runs through the Foundry’s juried August group show.
Elizabeth Casquiero’s household landscape in A Pause in the Day bears an odd formal resemblance to Jim Earl’s rigorous poetic treatment of near and far in Within the Green Cathedral. Still in the world of landscape, we feel the vibration of closeness and depth in Marlowe Emerson’s Chateau Grounds #2 and Lori Katz’ Fences. The show then takes us in and out of sometimes-disorienting representational space in works by Sally Canzoneri, Jana Curcio, Delna Dastur, Camilla David, Martin deAlteriis, Kim DiDonato-Murrell, Octavia Frazier, Eleanor Glattly, Tom Greaves, Rebecca Hirsh, Courtney Kolker, Deborah Kommalan and Stephen Schiff.
