Phyllis Ewen at A.I.R. Gallery and Alice Attie at Foley Gallery

511 W. 25th Street

Phyllis Ewen, Turbulent e/Motion
in gallery 2

art and science fuse as Ewen creates organic form and line in materials and shadows. In some cases the seemingly fragile work is surrounded by found dictionary texts refering to scientific meanings or explorations. Her use of latex and resin creates the appearance of glass making them stronger than they look yet still maintaing their "fragililty".

Alice Attie, Mother Tongue

Attie composes her drawings from words found in literature that she has been inspired and chanllenged by. They form shapes, coffins, orbes, squares, almost in a mantra like prayer across the page.
