Rebecca Schultz, Painting

Kellner Gallery

Schultz’s paintings express and help process her love of, and fear for, the natural world. The degradation of the environment evokes both an existential sadness and a reminder to deeply see the beauty that is around and accept that it is constantly changing. The imagery of her work sits in the liminal space between the abstract and representational, offering an indication of natural form without explicitly depicting it. There is protean ambiguity that mirrors the mystery of nature.

Giulia Livi, Installation

Tile Room Gallery

Livi’s work interposes objects of the everyday to distort the viewer’s sense of space, explore our ability to inhabit rooms, and merge the dreamlike with the rigid. Her geometric objects and paintings focus on materiality to investigate light, form, and the weirdly functional. She thinks of paintings as they exist in the home, decorating our lives, using us to give them purpose. And inversely, objects become paintings to question abstraction and reality. Her work focuses on the acute and the polite, the domestic and the utilitarian.

Andrew Chalfen, Painting & Sculpture

Book Room Gallery

Chalfen’s work shows a sheer joy in precise, dense pattern-making. The viewer may not know what to focus on first, becoming overwhelmed and subsequently absorbed in the details, is akin to the experience of mediation or a divine/psychedelic experience. More recent abstract geometric pieces, including painted sculptures, explore themes of nostalgia, climate change, play, topography, allusions to scientific data and musical expression and notation, and deconstructions reflective of, and perhaps counter to, accelerating social and psychic instability in the world.
