“Carole Seborovsky: Works on paper”
December 8, 2014 @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pmFree
Opening reception: Tuesday, November 4th from 6 – 8 pm
In Seborovski’s work, paper is the essential medium. Taking an unusual approach, she builds collages rather than cutting and pasting, and crafts material with a complete acknowledgement of its space and dimensions. These works on paper are treated as three-dimensional objects, inviting spectators to consider and perceive different points of view, even changing these points of view before their eyes.
Her compositions may function as mandalas, demanding a deep contemplation, or as cellular beings, with organic and metamorphic qualities. There are conscious and unconscious visual and elemental references to Zen philosophy, African and Asian art, Minimalism and Organic Surrealism. Each is connected by the way the paper is handled, including the tactile qualities and the reactions other materials have during their interaction.
These works on paper are a sophisticated look back to the minimal compositions of Seborovski’s work in the 80’s, in both the use of materials and the way they interact with paper. They develop the artist’s interest in the continued state of flux – not in their inherent reality, but through the way they are perceived. In our contemplation of her works and assimilation of what we see resides the final incision that completes them.
