Laurel Roth and Mary Anne Kluth are both fascinated by the process autho r Michael Pollan describes as "reductive science".

Roth's new w orks will examine the ways that science has enabled industrialized farming to manipulate humanity's place in a larger ecosystem. Using hardwoods carve d and polished by hand to a perfect Brancusi-like finish\, she meticulously recreates the largely unseen remains of food animals such as cows and pigs . Embellished with Swarovski crystals\, and presented like relics\, these b ones celebrate the very evidence of selective breeding omitted in discussio ns of the current system of food consumption in the United States.

Kluth's new paintings will depict the dissonant relationship between hu manity and landscape that can result when one focuses too closely on empiri cal perceptions. Contrasting loose\, spontaneous mark-making with obsessive techniques and photo-realist depiction\, the resulting images will relate the tragic romanticism of radio astronomers\, individuals that spend their lives staring at computer models of places and events impossible to directl y experience.

Both artists are interested in the ways people at tempt to articulate a human niche in the cosmos\, and the human strategies that both propel and foil that endeavor.
