Carol McMahon:
"Off_Kilter"

In her latest work, Carol McMahon returns to themes of home and childhood.

McMahon will be showing assemblages using found furniture, objects and toys. Sometimes elegant, awkward, forlorn, or humorous, this work underlines the uncertainties and mysteries of domestic life.

Kathleen Volp:
"PRONK!"

"Homage to Utrecht's 'Still Life with Cockatoo'" (detail from installation), mixed media, 95" x 45" x 41", 2015 (photo by Will Howcroft)

 

The work in Kathleen Volp’s latest exhibition "PRONK!" is an exuberant contemporary dialog with a 17th-century painting by Adriaen van Utrecht in the tradition of Dutch pronk still lifes (after the verb pronk, meaning to "show off").

Volp, who works in assemblage, combines materials including fake fruit, faux cockatoos, thrift-shop antiques and wood-grained spandex to address the parallels between the “ostentatious display” of commodities during the Dutch Golden Age and today’s conspicuous consumption.

Vivian Pratt:
"Inner Terrains"

Gazing into organic debris, I discover a world in the minutiae. Finding connections between my magnified plant material and all forms of nature, I see allusions to the body or to outer space or inner terrains. 

I photograph, modify, collage and combine with more plant material until I find a moment of resolution, not content until the forms coalesce into an imagined space.

Tuo Wang:
"A Study for Human Opera: Prelude"

Tuo Wang's debut exhibition at Bromfield features his recent project based on two 19th-century European literatures.

By employing various mediums to create a multi-narrative environment, this project attempts to examine the unreliable relationship between cultural archive and the contemporary human status.

 

 


Revisit key artworks from the recent exhibitions "The 4 Questions" by Larry C. Volk and "New Paintings" by Jill Weber.

 

Larry C. Volk: "The 4 Questions"


The 4 Questions uses the Passover Seder as a framework to explore the Holocaust experiences of Rosette Volk, the artist’s mother.

Larry Volk explores his family history through the ritual of the Seder meal, which embodies Jewish tradition of recollection and remembrance.

 

Jill Weber: "New Paintings"

My work incorporates the essentials of architectural space and detail into compositions that are both ambiguous and concrete. In each painting I  intentionally create a disorienting sense of depth and movement.

It has been said that I turn “our perceptions about space upside down by morphing the tangible, asking us to confront architectural space as repositories of memory and the endless possibilities of human interaction."

I hope that is true.
