SOPHIE HIRSCH: DYNAMIC OPPOSITION
SUNDAY, FEB 05 2017, - SUNDAY, MAR 05 2017
The exhibit Sophie Hirsch: Dynamic Opposition features 10 new works that materially explore the delicate nuances of balance and form mirrored between the artist's materials and the poised and flexible human body. Inspired in part by an investigation into the integration of human form and the clarity of mental awareness inherent in Pilates, this body of work spans from intimate shadow boxes that reveal the softly sensual and abstract undulations of shells found in Africa, to her more familiar sculptural constructions of fabric, silicone, plaster, and metal. In a departure from her typical darker color palette, soft blushes of color weave throughout the pieces.
The intimate scale of these works reveal a strangely unsettling mise-en-scène of swirled, bubbling, and crumpled silicone and fabric sheaths that are draped, stretched, and hung like muscle or skin that is at once fragile and strange. The juxtaposition of plaster, springs, frames and these delicate skins evoke the precarious balance in the roles, rituals, and limits of the human form bent and molded into postures of length, eloquence, and tension.
