Is Between examines the relationships in the work of artists Liz Ainslie and Sarah McDougald Kohn. Ainslie’s painted objects are ambiguous shapes that move in and out of contexts; in their form and volume the shapes hint at, but are not quite, familiar. McDougald Kohn’s sculptures examine our relationship with everyday objects, and the ways we determine and understand the utility of an object. Each artist creates work on a still-life scale that allows a viewer to relate the shapes and sculptures to familiar household objects. However, although the viewer may naturally relate all of the works to figurative and familiar contexts, the work is ultimately abstract. Is Between allows viewers to consider the shifting perceptions of the forms rendered, as well as the dialog between the two artists’ work.
