From Mass Gallery:
“This exhibition features a collection of works that explore crushing— materially metaphorically, emotionally or accidentally.
The language we use to describe intangible feelings commonly draws from material metaphors: our hearts break and melt, our stomachs are tied in knots and filled with butterflies. Feelings of love, desire, and attraction are often described using terms of damage or dissolution. We are undone by our feelings, longing to let ourselves go.
The artists in this show make work that negotiates the relationship between control and release, desire and destruction, intimacy and longing. In CRUSH, colors pool and spread; boundaries are breached; surfaces are soaked, brushed, carved and pressed; hands reach, touch and try to hold it together.
New works by Kerry Maguire, Alexandre Pépin, Lauren Moya Ford, Mai Snow, Alex Diamond, Logan Larsen, and Virginia L. Montgomery”
