ANN WIMSATT Keep it With You
LISA BULAWSKY Everything Is Still Happening

June 8 – July 27, 2018
Opening Reception & Meet the Artists:
Friday, June 8, 2018, from 5 to 8 pm
Artists Talk: Saturday, June 23rd, 2018 at 4 pm

Ann Wimsatt presents a new series of prints examining the way that iconic architecture lives as fragments, in the individual and collective mind, across time. Multi-disciplinary artist Lisa Bulawsky presents a new series of works using the printed mark as a foundational metaphor for history that is marked by ruptures and continuities of time.

Her work is an exploration of her interest in the way we individually and collectively experience iconic architecture in our memory and imagination. In this new work, she has taken her detailed architecture paintings and set them as fragments in a flowing, imagined space. Per the habits of her architecture work, she has worked back and forth between the real (actual drawing and painting), and the surreal, (computer-aided drawing, painting and printing). The new work continues to examine the way that iconic architecture lives as fragments, in the individual and collective mind, across time. She is a painterly abstractionist whose work widens the boundaries of contemporary representation.

Lisa Bulawsky presents an exhibition of new works on paper titled “Everything Is Still Happening.” Everything Is Still Happening exhibits Bulawsky’s recent and ongoing body of work, NP-C (amor fati). This is a series of collages that considers time as a broken lens, not linear or cyclical but kaleidoscopic. All works in the series are generated from elements of past studio works, invoking forgotten histories. Handprinted works are cut up and collaged onto inkjet prints of newsprint backing sheets – byproducts of the printmaking process. Each collage is a navigation of the terrain suggested by the newsprint image – the color, marginalia, and residue found there. Each collage is also an intervention into the past by current events, both inside and outside of the studio, in the time and place of their making – St. Louis, Missouri between 2015 and the present, 2018.

Public Hours: Tuesday through Friday 11:00 am – 6:00 pm
