Save the Date: Opening Reception of “Crossed Sections” by Susan Feldman at Launch LA – Saturday December 9th
“Crossed Sections, ” a solo exhibition by Susan Feldman opens on Saturday night at Launch LA.
For this exhibition, Susan Feldman has constructed a spiritual journey of ladder-like frameworks through the layering of materials in her compositions. These structured sculptures act as three dimensional landscapes, evoking the stratified, fragmentary nature of history and memory.
Using found objects including distressed wood, colored string, and old photographs printed on plexi-glass, Feldman dignifies these discarded materials as environments of observation. Arranged as architectural plans, Feldman transforms each assemblage into a rising structure, that in turn references a metaphorical self-growth.
This current body of work was inspired by meditation practice and visualizes the spiritual enlightenment of “rising-up.” These all-over compositions take the eye through various planes and materials, which parallel the obstacles and stages of progress through that journey.
As opposed to utilitarian constructions indicative of the urban skyline filled with high-rises, Feldman designs structures of contemplation, memory, and hope.
Axel Wilhite: ‘Virtual Memory” will also be opening at Launch LA on the same night with his solo exhibition.
