Opening Saturday February 15th at LMAKprojects, New York is “Plump Pulp” a solo exhibition by Elana Herzog. For her second solo show at the gallery, she expands her visual lexicon to incorporate new mediums. Continuing to investigate relationships between surface and structure, excavation and accumulation, she creates forms in which both materials and their cultural referents are layered and embedded. Her unique two-dimensional work, consisting of handmade paper and textiles, is a venture Herzog undertook at Dieu Donne Paper Mill several years ago. In Herzog’s hands vibrantly colored paper pulp interacts effortlessly with found textiles, while retaining the fluid, plastic character of its wet state and. These two materials, whose cultural and technological histories are so closely entwined, are brought together in work that challenges the conventions of both mediums.
Opening Reception: Saturday February 15, 2014. 6-9pm
“Plump Pulp” will be on view through March 30, 2014.
