“Over, Under, Through” Exhibit Presents Works by Sculptors Elisa Berry Fonseca, Suzi Fox, and Fabiola Alvarez Yurcisin

Exhibit on view through December 16 in the Kay Gallery at BlackRock Center for the Arts

The exhibition “Over, Under, Through” presents works of sculpture and installation by Elisa Berry Fonseca, Suzi Fox, and Fabiola Alvarez Yurcisin, three contemporary sculptors whose work often focuses on the manipulation of common materials to create new three-dimensional forms. Elisa Berry Fonseca stacks and cuts scraps of tar paper, felt, plywood, and carpet or welds and brazes steel wire into sculptural installations that replicate scenes found in the natural world. Suzi Fox responds to the inherent characteristics of carefully chosen materials and tools, many found at the hardware store, then manipulates them into thought-provoking sculptures. Fabiola Alvarez Yurcisin uses additive forms of construction, often using materials considered obsolete, in works that question how we produce, consume and discard technological inventions.
