In a series of 24 new sculptures and drawings entitled “These Days” Jessica Dalva unfolds an entire day, an hour, a single moment or ageneral feeling that reoccurs over the course of a lifetime. There are demons to be vanquished, mind-numbing tasks to complete, signals to get crossed and decisions to be made. Dalva’s inspiration lies in dusty caravans, old hand-tatted lace, peeling wallpaper, peeks of garters and (generally) anything striped.
Annie Murphy-Robinson uses sandpaper as a medium to embed dry material into heavy paper, working with a myriad of photographic reference for the images of her daughters and drawing from life the images of her old toys and memorabilia to create the work in “Emily and the Cosmos.”
Both shows hang through March 1.
