Jeff Feld's sculptures adopt references from institutional and domestic environments that reflect the make-do and ritualized relationships we engage in. His piece entitled "Look Out", included in the exhibit, is a perfect example: a road barrier, we are all familiar with, transformed into a formal standing sculpture.
Doreen McCarthy's Overlapping stacks of Plexiglas forms shape into interlocking prisms. The physical attributes seem to be in flux depending on the viewer's position and the direction of the ambient light sources allowing the sculptures to hover between transparency and solidity. The effect of light on the Plexiglas surface and the movement of the shadowed lines is continuous, marking the expansion and evolution of the work as it unfolds over time
Guy Nelson works with the natural and the synthetic in his sculptures. The artist plays with the relationship between the two materials. In "Untitled Tree" Nelson has created a de-glow mass of rounded objects sitting on /or coming out of a tree trunk engulfed in what looks like sap or resin. It could be interpreted as a statement on our environment, be it natural or a consequence of our footprint.
Thinking of Margaret Lanzetta's work in terms of sculpture makes sense. Her paintings reference the physicality of layered materials. In the series of abstract paintings entitled "National Highways" the artist implies road maps metaphoric directional travel.
