Drawn to Gravity
The exhibition Drawn to Gravity points to a curiosity of ideas and experimentation, triggered by the direct process of drawing. Urban environments inspire Jennifer Celio’s meticulously rendered graphite drawings on panel. Celio illustrates not only the passing of time but also a process of change. Zachary Kleyn’s new drawings and sculptures question specific ways in which we navigate through life. The drawings, transparent and opaque, geometric and organic, do not follow normal rules of nature but instead act as metaphors to link disparate images and ideas. Kleyn will also exhibit a selection of new sculptures tangibly depicting seemingly impossible circumstances. The inspiration for the intricate and multi-layered drawings of Naoe Suzuki comes from medical dictionaries, journals, textbooks and catalogs. In her current work, Suzuki references art history, religious iconography, fashion and plant forms. These diverse and vague influences are pushed together to form quirky, yet delicate and poetic compositions.
