The exhibition explores the work of artists who employ various types of reticulation\, or imagery of webs and nets\, in their work. Vija Celmins’ print of a gossamer-fine spiderweb conveys uniqueness and visual complexity \, strength as well as vulnerability\, while Ruth Waldman’s network is a we b of a different order.  In her colored pencil drawing\, Boschian imagery o f pierced\, vaguely figurative shapes suggests entrapment\, pleasure and pa in. The limitless expansiveness of infinite space and the cosmological mapp ing of the universe are explored in a 1978 enamel and pigment painting on b oard by Yayoi Kusama\; Ivo Ringe’s vibrant and bold network pattern paintin g\; Mark Sheinkman’s undulant and mysterious drawings\, Laura Watt’s varieg ated and overlapping webs in gouache on paper\; Devin Powers’ crisp\, astra l map-like linear drawings\; Cathryn Arcomano’s quiet Tantric-like painting of a delicate geometric network\; and Lori Ellison’s obsessive ballpoint d rawings on notebook paper\, which speak of worlds intimate and universal.  Aric Obrosey cuts paper to create a network of silhouettes of dozens of mot ifs which reference labor.  They coalesce and intertwine at the center to c reate a large image of a work glove.  Daniel Hill’s rhythmic and linear pai nted webs allude to the continuous movement of sound vibrations.  David Man n creates linkages between clusters in his painting\, suggesting not only m icroscopic synaptic activity but also connections between larger groups and communities.    Laura Sharp Wilson paints a variety of ropes\, chains\, an d links which obscure\, bind and reveal layers of history in her idiosyncra tic paintings\, while Jason Rohlf’s expansive and colorful quilt-like prism s speak of linkages of memory and personal experience.  Jason Karolak’s lay ered linear paintings recall architectural structures and explore iteration and growth\, while Mark Lombardi’s drawing and Loren Munk’s painting exami ne and dissect reality-based social\, political\, artistic and financial co mmunities.
