In the late summer of 2000\, simple black and white signs wi th the words "TAKE BACK VERMONT" began to appear along the state's winding country roads. The campaign was triggered by the state legislature's passag e of the first law of its kind\, which established civil unions for same-se x couples. Years later the signs still dangled from trees\, fence posts\, a nd barnsides as symbols of the wider class struggle and culture war between the "woodchucks" and the "flatlanders" &ndash\; the former professing to r epresent working-class native Vermonters\, with the later being characteriz ed as affluent liberal-minded transplants. For the exhibition \;Tak e Back Vermont\, the gallery has assembled paintings\, sculptures\, an d works on paper by Peter Gallo\, Ellen Lesperance\, and Aaron Spangler tha t mine the ideas surrounding ruralness and protest.  \;

Separate from ISCP&rsquo\;s international residency program\, where residents are fully s ponsored\, the New York City-based artist studios\, from 200-350 square fee t in size\, will cost $700-900 per month. This includes 24-hour access to a furnished studio\, kitchen and lounge\, WiFi\, administration and all util ities. Artists may participate in professional development workshops by lea ders in the field that will provide tools and strategies for fundraising\, studio visits\, and artist writing among other issues.
 \;
There will be the possibility to renew the studio for a second year.
Residents will be chosen by a jury of art professionals through a competiti ve process.

I have always been fascinated about the idea of Qi&ndash \; the subtle energy that permeates everything in life and links all its el ements together. This idea constantly makes me curious about how human bein gs and the material world are universally related and bonded to each other. &ndash\; Shen Wei

\n

Flowers Gallery is pleased to announce Shen Wei&rsquo\;s first solo exhibition at Flowers Gallery\, New York. Shen Wei is known for his intimately revealing photographic portraits\, in which th e themes of identity\, memory\, sexuality and self-discovery are explored t hrough the landscapes of his homeland\, and the nude figure.

\n

In visible Atlas is inspired by the Chinese philosophy of Qi - an unseen life force and a method of healing. For Shen Wei\, this mysterious vital en ergy is poetic and seductive. Using his own body and personality as a subje ct\, he envisions the internal and external forces channeling through the b ody and its surroundings. Drawing from memories of his childhood\, as well as religious\, historical and mythological imagery\, the narrative is inter woven with elements of fantasy. Photographic subjects of the figure\, objec ts and landscape are combined with minimally rendered drawings\, where lumi nous dots\, circles\, arcs\, arrows and waves give tangible form to imagine d flows and concentrations of Qi.

\n

The concept of energy flow is dee ply rooted in Chinese traditional culture\, and is gaining wider interest i n the contemporary western world. According to ancient philosopher Laozi\, Qi embraces &ldquo\;all manifestations of energy\, from the most material a spects of energy (such as the earth beneath your feet\, the flesh and the b lood) to the most immaterial aspects (light\, movement\, heat\, thought\, a nd emotion)&rdquo\;.

\n

Invisible Atlas presents the material and immaterial as deeply intertwined. Shen Wei creates a vision of a multi -dimensional world\, in his own words\, &ldquo\;a path to our desires f or beauty\, secrecy and pleasure.&rdquo\;

Higher Pictures presents F olded Paper\, Glass Rods\, 1974 &ndash\; 1982\, two seminal bodies of cameraless photographic work by artist\, writer\, and professor emerita She ila Pinkel. This presentation marks the first time the works have been show n in New York City and the artist&rsquo\;s first solo exhibition in New Yor k.

\n

The prints on view evolved from ex periments Pinkel began as an MFA student at UCLA. Fascinated by the possibi lities of using light to make images without a camera or enlarger\, Pinkel studied with a physicist and subsequently conducted rigorous visual experim entation with light phenomena including incandescent\, X-Ray\, ultraviolet\ , prismatic and digital sources.

\n

To m ake Glass Rods and Folded Paper Pieces\, Pinkel exposed her compos itions&mdash\;solid glass rods arranged directly onto photosensitive surfac es and sculptures made from sheets of photographic paper&mdash\;to a brief flash of light from a single light source. From within this seemingly narro w set of parameters come rich and varied studies. In monochrome and candy-c olored palettes\, some of the glass rods are clearly identifiable\, others begin to break down into vibrating woven patterns and further into geometri c abstractions\, and still others are stretched and warped into melting psy chedelic planes. Pinkel found that layering the rods at increasingly perpen dicular angles led to greater light refraction\, bringing the final photogr ams closer to what she describes as visual music.

\n

The Folded Paper Pieces are lushly textured trompe l&rsquo\;oe il\, pictures that Pinkel calls &ldquo\;time-space paradoxes\,&rdquo\; two dimensional representations of the paper as a three dimensional form. When the artist flashes the dimensionalized folded paper with light\, planes of paper are exposed to varying degrees\, giving the final image its dramatic shading and sense of volume. But developing the print itself requires flatt ening the sculpture back into a two-dimensional sheet that now holds an ima ge of its own prior form. Distilling her process to the very essentials of photography allows Pinkel to work precisely at the intersection of the medi um&rsquo\;s double nature. It reproduces vision and has an endless capacity to defamiliarize it.

\n

Sheila Pinkel w as born in 1941 in Newport News\, Virginia. She holds an MFA from UCLA\, wh ere she studied with Robert Heinecken\, and from 1986 to 2012 she was Profe ssor of Art at Pomona College. Over the course of her 40-year career\, Pink el has created a strikingly diverse body of work that encompasses experimen tal light studies\, documentary photography\, social and political critique \, and public art. Pinkel&rsquo\;s variegated practice is conceptually driv en by a desire to\, in the artist&rsquo\;s own words\, &ldquo\;[make] visib le the invisible in nature and in culture.&rdquo\; Pinkel&rsquo\;s work has been exhibited extensively since the late 1970s&mdash\;most recently in th e group exhibition &ldquo\;Heavenly Bodies&rdquo\; (2014) at the Santa Barb ara Museum of Art&mdash\;and is held in the collections of numerous museums \, including the Los Angeles County Museum of Art\; the San Francisco Museu m of Modern Art\; the Art Institute of Chicago\; The Santa Barbara Museum o f Art\; and the Musé\;e National d&rsquo\;Art Moderne &ndash\; Centre Pompidou\, Paris. Pinkel lives and works in Los Angeles.

The onset of catastrophe is not signaled by the sense of eve rything falling through the dark and ending in accidental death: everything \, including a catastrophe\, has a moment-by-moment structure\, a structure that is beyond measurement or comprehension\, that is maddeningly complex or must be conceived in quite another manner\, one in which the degree of c omplexity can be articulated only in terms of images that seem impossible t o conjure since time has slowed down to the point that the world has become indifferent to circumstances and various terrible preconditions have arriv ed at a perfect universal conclusion\, that being because they are composed of intentions\, because the moment is the result of unconscious choices\, because a key doesn&rsquo\;t immediately fit into the ignition\, because we do not start in third gear then move down to second but because we start i n second and move into third as we move down the hill then turn onto a high way above the village\, because the distance before us is like looking down a tunnel\, because the greenery on the boughs still smells of morning dew\ , because of the death of a dog and someone&rsquo\;s badly executed maneuve r when turning left\, that is to say because of one missed choice or anothe r\, of more missed choices and still more missed choices ad infinitum\, all those maddening had-we-but-known choices impossible to conceptualize becau se the situation we find ourselves in is complicated\, determined by someth ing that is in the nature of neither God nor the devil\, whose ways are imp enetrable to us and are doomed to remain so because choice is not simply a matter of choosing\, but the result of that which might have happened anywa y.
