DESCRIPTION

The gallery will present an installation by Terry Braunstein, an artist recognized for her work in photomontage and “book sculpture.”  The installation, entitled Time Bound, is a multi-media assemblage of paper cutouts, wire and dollhouse furniture that manufactures what the artist calls a “RearWindow world.”  The eight-foot long tableaux houses tiny inhabitants who go about their business in adjacent rooms without walls.  In one scenario, a middle-aged man with one foot stuck in a trashcan fixates on a globe behind a gate. As former LACMA curator Howard Fox observes, the thematic content of Braunstein’s work, birth, childhood, coming of age, life and death are, like Joseph Cornell’s work, communicated “not through instruction or exposition to the viewer, but in cajoling the viewer to discover such content for him or herself.” Concurrent to her show at Craig Krull, a retrospective of Braunstein’s work will be presented at El Camino College from March 30 – May 1, 2009.
