Laura Post: Familial Patterns
September 20 through November 8, 2019
The C.R. Ettinger Studio is pleased to present in the gallery, Laura Post: Familial Patterns. Join us September 20th from 6:30 - 8:00 for the opening reception.This exhibition will coincide with Manifest(o): Paper revolutions conference which explores paper's endurance as a material, subject, and object in contemporary art.
In this new series of work, Laura Post created engravings which she uses as building blocks for sculpture and then juxtaposes the printed portraits with paper life casts of her extended family. The portraits reveal the forces that life inscribe onto each face and the relationships between the generations.
