More Info:
Gelfman makes abstract paintings that are rooted in the visible world. She identifies and isolates textures, forms or patterns, either natural or manmade, then repeats them to create compositions that seem as if they could flow forever in all directions. The works in this exhibition refer to landscape, but do not represent it. Instead, they suggest a sense of place. In the most recent series, the dune paintings, the surface image changes with the slightest shift in the viewer's position or in the angle of light.
The second phase of P.S.–P.P.S. presents Genovese’s response to the participatory component of his process. The information inscribed by the public on the previously displayed enameled plates, was transcribed, archived and translated where Genovese through this internalizing of social commentary and rhetoric discovers content for new work. In this series, he has abstracted and engraved the information to the point of illegibility onto 5 mirror polished fractured plates. Two vitrines display works on paper that through redaction reveal only partial segments of the transcribed text. Aside from the conceptual ideas behind the work, on a visual level Genovese is speaking to materiality and reflection of light and movement.
