Hamiltonian Gallery presents a new three-person exhibition of paintings and installations by Hamiltonian Fellows Magnolia Laurie, Lina Vargas De La Hoz and Leah Frankel. By presenting physically binary relationships such as inside/outside and construction/destruction, each artist investigates exchanges of energies, and the ebb and flow of natural and social forces.
Within her paintings and installations, Magnolia Laurie creates environments centered upon masses of broken, crooked lines that could resemble a dense, organized nest, the aftermath of a natural disaster or an architectural armature.
Lina Vargas De La Hoz designs and creates objects that tenant, command, and address its surrounding space.
In Leah Frankel's installation titled (im)Balance, formed spheres of ice nestled in mounds of table salt are flecked throughout the gallery floor.
This exhibition runs from May 8, - June 9, 2010, with an opening reception on Saturday, May 8, 2010, from 7:00 - 9:00pm.
