Carol Peligian’s Sosomuch exhibition of recent paintings and sculptures opens on January 6, 2011 at Dean Project Gallery.
The exhibition continues Peligian’s alchemical seduction of material possibility: aluminum, oil, enamel, latex are equally employed to generate an altered state existing somewhere between atmosphere and stratosphere.
These works alternately confront and quietly elicit questions related to the idea of infinity and existence. The work’s delicate construction and implacable physicality provide the viewers with a space where the surrounding and the self become one in spirit. The understanding of material/form is evident in each of the works. Moreover, the integrity with which Peligian has approached her subjects, results in a paradoxical visual experience of reality/reassurance and the mystery of the purity of time/space. The juxtaposition of the organic and manufactured as they trade boundaries, make more permeable the borders between the work and the viewer.
The work will remain on view through February 12, 2011.
