Allan Rosenbaum's Binary
Allan Rosenbaum’s Binary a solo exhibition presented in conjunction with Lively Experiments: the 49th annual conference of the National Council on Education for Ceramic Arts in Pawtucket, RI March 25-28, 2015. Opening Reception: Friday March 27, 6-9 pm.
“Currently, I am exploring the idea of the binary in a series of sculptures and constructed drawings,” says Allan. “I am particularly interested in the physical aspects of constructing these works and I develop my palette in this series through material choice and construction. “I hope to call attention to structural nuances, to raise questions about the relationship between sculpture and drawing, and to create work that explores the notion of beauty outside of classical standards and cultural expectations.”
The exhibition explores the area between drawing and sculpture with epoxy clay sculptures that are mounted on the wall casting shadows that provide a visual echo underscoring the piece's form.
