New Works at InLiquid's Art Studio, Park Towne Place

  • Park Towne Place 2200 Benjamin Franklin Parkway Philadelphia, PA, 19130 United States (map)

This exhibition of intricate Mylar cutouts and drawings at Park Towne Place is inspired by the architectural facades and windows of Girard Avenue, a major commercial and residential street that traverses Philadelphia. I lived in Brewerytown for two years, and I continue to work in Kensington. Permanent and impermanent aspects of these rapidly gentrifying and evolving neighborhoods are layered and juxtaposed in my imagery. By delicately cutting and layering mylar I depict a wall, through which the tower of St. Michael’s Church can be seen rendered in graphite. The brick and mortar pattern on the glass walls of the gallery evolves into a kite, with a row home painted on the sail. This floating house is a visual metaphor for the tenuous emotional and physical connection to home that is experienced by many people.
