Marian Carow & Deirdre Fox, curated by Yoonshin Park.
June 7 – July 13, 2019
Opening reception on Friday, June 7th from 6-9 pm and an artists’ conversation on Saturday, June 22nd from 2-3 pm.
Adds Donna is excited to present, “Spatial Rendering,” a two-person exhibition, guest curated by Yoonshin Park. In this exhibition, artists Marian Carow and Deirdre Fox examine visual association and experience through space and material. Both Fox and Carow work closely with scavenged materials while engaging with space. From the moment of laying their eyes on the raw materials, to installing the meticulously treated and resurfaced articles, these artists’ receptive and fluid approach to material and space is often connected in visual poetry.
Deirdre Fox puts physical objects to abstract use as visual poems. In her sculptural “object drawings,” she makes use of found containers and disposable materials to weave narratives around functionality, identity, loss, and transformation. Fox investigates the point at which a disposable object becomes art, drawing attention to the ubiquity of built-in obsolescence.
In her intuitive, process-based practice, Marian Carow investigates reuse, making idiosyncratic objects from found, ordinary materials, such as corrugated cardboard boxes or wood scraps. Her work addresses her occupation with fragmentation and rebuilding, isolation and abandonment.
Together, their works suggest a spatial dialogue created by the interrelated tension and adaptability of chosen materials. The exhibition offers a space for the viewers to mull over the transformative qualities of lines, structures, and purposes of the process.
