Duet: Saturday, March 29 2014

Yamini Nayar & Jerry Monteith

March 29 –May 31, 2014
Opening Reception: Saturday, March 29, 6pm-9pm

To see a world in a grain of sand
And heaven in a wild flower
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
And eternity in an hour—William Blake

In Duet’s second exhibition Yamini Nayar and Jerry Monteith explore the vertigo inducing ecstasy of dramatic scale shifts. The monumental and the microscopic collide in both 2D and 3D forms where it becomes difficult to tell where surface and volume begin and end. Nayar’s photographic work compresses space combined with an astonishing set of collaged figure ground reversals as a paradoxical sense of order emerges like a pyroclastic force from otherwise scrambled bric-a-brac. Monteith starts small and continues to pare down to what seems like a sub-atomic vanishing point. The effect of Monteith’s grain-like ‘Attractor’ series evokes Blake’s “hold infinity in the palm of your hand” as Nayar’s Chrysalis provides the embodiment of “eternity in an hour.”
