SPACE 151 and Levy Art + Architecture present:
R A W
An exhibition featuring the work of artists Katie Chin, Jeffrey Nemeroff, and Melissa Shanley that explores the natural, abstract and unrefined.
Through diverse mediums, the trio share a common fascination for the tactile and organic expression of seemingly accidental textures and forms.
Katie Chin's 2 and 3-dimensional work is made with melted optical fibers and beeswax, using communication technologies as a medium because of their tactile, organic qualities. Jeffrey Nemeroff incorporates fabric and string into his paintings, on which a composition is often pulled out of chaos. Photographer Melissa Shanley examines the wear, warping, damage and restoration of surfaces standing in service for hundreds of years.
By addressing the essence of material, viewers are welcome to consider a meditative perspective.
