Currently on view at Kate Werble Gallery, New York is “time, women, stars, death, sleep, flowers, life, eyes, a river, dreams” a solo exhibition by Luke Stettner. There are two central themes at the heart of this exhibition. The first is time and the record keeping devices we implement to measure its passing. The second is the literary device of metaphor, which exists to find symbolic and abstract affinities between subjects. Each work in the exhibition is a collection. There are no ‘singular’ objects; rather, as with the tenor and vehicle that make up a metaphor, every element exists to inform and complete the other, ultimately creating an internal, cooperative logic between sets. The works flirt with blankness as content, alluding to both the vacuum of memory and the difficulty, (if not impossibility), in describing subjective feelings through language and imagery.
“time, women, stars, death, sleep, flowers, life, eyes, a river, dreams” is on view through April 5, 2014.
