Press Releases - Soho20 Chelsea GalleryGALLERY I:
SOHO20 Chelsea Gallery presents “Once More, with Feeling…” an exhibition of Ruth Gilbert’s most recent body of dimensional paintings and sculptures. Working with the idea of a sailor as a central theme, Gilbert brings forth an enchanting series of figures that allude to significant relationships in her life.
Gilbert’s paintings break away from the rectangular canvas, come off of the wall, and take on lively shapes and forms. Her whimsical sculptures are made from ordinary hardware materials and contain an element of simplicity that is derived from the artist’s intuitive feelings.
Gilbert’s work is further inspired by images from early civilizations. The use of this particular imagery stems from the artist’s interest in cultures that seem untainted by the constraints of modern society.
Ruth Gilbert lives and works in Hastings-on-Hudson, New York. She has held various group and solo shows, and her work has been shown at: The Maitland Art Center, FL, The Boulder Art Center, CO, and the Bronx Museum for the Arts, NY. This is her second solo show at SOHO20 Chelsea Gallery.
SOHO2O Chelsea Gallery presents “Embodiments,” an exhibition of Susan Case’s most recent mixed-media figurative sculptures. In her work, Case explores the theme of metamorphosis and the figure’s ability to reflect the world around us.
Working in a variety of media in accordance with the concept of the piece, Case’s figures are made of common, everyday materials such as: newspaper, nails, paint and string. These life-size, gendered figures are constructed out of plaster and wire screen whose form is built up from wads and rolls of newspaper.
Working with paint and collaged paper, their surfaces are textured and tactile.
