  Reticulate
June 21 - August 17, 2013
 

The exhibition explores the work of artists who employ various types of reticulation, or imagery of webs and nets, in their work. Vija Celmins’ print of a gossamer-fine spiderweb conveys uniqueness and visual complexity, strength as well as vulnerability, while Ruth Waldman’s network is a web of a different order. In her colored pencil drawing, Boschian imagery of pierced, vaguely figurative shapes suggests entrapment, pleasure and pain. The limitless expansiveness of infinite space and the cosmological mapping of the universe are explored in a 1978 enamel and pigment painting on board by Yayoi Kusama; Ivo Ringe’s vibrant and bold network pattern painting; Mark Sheinkman’s undulant and mysterious drawings, Laura Watt’s variegated and overlapping webs in gouache on paper; Devin Powers’ crisp, astral map-like linear drawings; Lori Ellison’s obsessive ballpoint drawings on notebook paper, which speak of worlds intimate and universal; and Cathryn Arcomano’s quiet Tantric-like painting of a delicate geometric network. Aric Obrosey cuts paper to create a network of silhouettes of dozens of motifs which reference labor. They coalesce and intertwine at the center to create a large image of a work glove. Daniel Hill’s rhythmic and linear painted webs allude to the continuous movement of sound vibrations. David Mann creates linkages between clusters in his painting, suggesting not only microscopic synaptic activity but also connections between larger groups and communities. Laura Sharp Wilson paints a variety of ropes, chains, and links which obscure, bind and reveal layers of history in her idiosyncratic paintings, while Jason Rohlf’s expansive and colorful quilt-like prisms speak of linkages of memory and personal experience. Jason Karolak’s layered linear paintings recall architectural structures and explore iteration and growth, while Mark Lombardi’s drawing and Loren Munk’s painting examine and dissect reality-based social, political, artistic and financial communities.
