Emily Loving and Marilyn Waligore construct photographs using imagery culled from the experience of spaces and objects that they encounter in their urban wanderings. Both artists engage in a dialogue with sculptural concerns: the generation of three-dimensional forms created for the gallery and documented in the studio. Their work explores the tension between the illusory photograph and the physicality of matter.
Playing on the process of framing and re-framing, Emily Loving’s journeys move the viewer through the landscape; she embraces fragmentation and recombination of moments through her construction of sculptural forms. Marilyn Waligore decontextualizes product packaging, found in local streets and streams, and amplifies these emblematic traces of consumerism to prompt awareness of our impact on the environment. Together they share goals as they invite visual scrutiny and attempt to heighten viewer perception, in an extension of everyday experience.
Opening reception with the artists Saturday, December 3, 2016 (7-9 PM). Exhibition on display through January 28, 2017.
