Carter Burden Gallery presents Unbound in the east gallery featuring Beverly Brodsky and Elisabeth Jacobsen. The reception will be held March 3, 2016 from 6 – 8 PM. The exhibition runs from March 3rd through 24th.
In Unbound, Beverly Brodsky presents abstract paintings and monotypes for her first exhibition at Carter Burden Gallery. Brodsky’s visceral surfaces are created through many layers of paint. In layering the paint, the artist reflects on the passage of geological time, and how time can be seen through the earth’s strata. In addition to geology, the artist is inspired by mysterious, non-linear realities of the spirit world. The resulting rich surfaces of Brodsky’s paintings and monotypes reveal her passion for color.
In Unbound, Elisabeth Jacobsen presents sculptures for her first show at Carter Burden Gallery. Interwoven through Jacobsen’s work is an adoration of the female figure and a devotion to sacred and secular images. She also brings together found or discarded objects, which support the meaning and the type of composition or tableau that she creates. Her art is a means to explore women’s issues, religion, gay concerns, and other themes, pursuing the meaning of our bodies and loss.
