“Transformations” mixed media plaster wall reliefs
Opening Reception: Friday October 29, 6-9 PM
Iris Goldstein creates her painted plaster-relief sculptures to investigate allusion and memory. In her latest body of work, the imagery is intended to suggest known and unknown objects and landscapes–fragments of memories, perhaps. Common building materials, plaster, aluminum screening and wood, are transformed from the literal to the imagined and abstracted. The artist’s experiments with her materials help her to find new ways of seeing, which she hopes will awaken other allusions and memories in the viewer.
