Five College Consortium

Reception for 'Suspended'

Thu, Feb 15 2018 - 5:00pm to 7:00pm
Oresman Gallery
An installation of recent work by Liza Phillips

The larger-than-life-size gestural drawings depict chairs wrapped in blankets, shrink-wrapped for transport and storage. Concealed by blankets, the shape and character of each of the chairs is revealed through the language of design. The range of styles–from Victorian to Modern–represent generations of women in the artist’s family. As keepers of objects and family history, women are the underlying subject of the works, the chairs can be partially understood as portraits. Because of the fragile nature of charcoal on fabric, the drawings, like memories, may fade over time.
There will be an artist reception on February 15, 5-7pm.
