ANNE EASTMAN & CORINNE JONES: KNOCK ON EFFECT
FEBRUARY 10 - MARCH 26, 2017
OPENING FEBRUARY 10TH
The knock on effect is a causal sequence, a chain of events that is characterized as incidental, the outcome of which is more speculative than demonstrable. It is difficult to locate the beginning and the end is unforeseeable. How should we continue?
Anne Eastman’s sculptures incorporate found images cut and torn from the last six months of the New York Times. A table stands in the middle of the gallery supporting tiers of glass with scattered clippings casting a reflective pool of overlapping imagery in the mirror below while smaller constellations of newspaper fragments float between standing panes of glass forming chance collages with their reflected reversed side.
Corinne Jones’ paper intervention, a horizontal frieze, spans the gallery wall, windows and exterior wall. Inside, a vertical frieze comprised of tiles, forms the outline of a monolithic facade on the wall and its ‘shadow’ or ‘reflection’ on the floor. The two site specific works make use of two different factory produced materials and are both shaped from the same template. The repetitive arrangement of the cut pieces form a wave-like gesture, a symbolic depiction of a causal sequence.
