Mounted directly to the wall, Lefrak's scratched Plexiglas drawings, when directly lit, create nearly photo-realistic images in shadow.
Lefrak writes: "My intention is to visually represent a space or place that transmits energy from the past. Each image has a story to tell, and in the same way that the shadow is connected to the drawing, the scenes that are represented are inseparable from history."
The show will include drawings of Trinity Site, the infamous NM testing ground for atomic bombs, 2 of which were exhibited at MASS MoCA earlier this year as part of " InVisible: Art at the Edge of Perception."
