Candice Smith Corby (Painting Fellow ’08) and Julie Levesque (Sculpture/Installation Fellow ’05), who had a terrific Artist to Artist conversation on this blog a few months ago, both unveil installations this weekend.
Candice’s Estate of Things opens at Essex Art Center in Lawrence tonight (Friday, May 8), with a 5-7 PM opening reception. The painted wall installation considers the objects – beloved but meaningless – left behind once we are gone. Like the image below, the piece pulls you in with curious juxtapositions of the familiar yet discordant.
Julie’s Sift is installed in a new space beside the Clark Gallery in Lincoln. The sculptural work depicts a monochromatic figure crawling on a circular path. Like much of Julie’s work, it’s stark and creepy, a beautiful scene harboring dark secrets.
