Philadelphia Inquirer Reviews ‘Fragile Boundaries’

Philadelphia Inquirer just covered a group show I am in at the Delaware Center for Contemporary Art.

The author, Edith Newhall,  points to a few works to describe curator Julien Robson’s “attraction to art that pushes beyond the expectations of its particular medium – and that refuses to be easily categorized.”

Two of the more obvious examples of resistance in Robson’s exhibition are Virginia Maksymowicz’s fulsome Panis Angelicus, a cast plaster sculpture of what appears to be an upper section of a Corinthian column overflowing with cast-plaster loaves of bread and broken plaster ornamentation, and Leslie Friedman’s Tasty, an installation of wall-mounted screen prints and a large pile of shiny oversize soda cans. …Friedman’s similarly brimming ode to consumerism and obesity – those soda cans are actually cardboard that Friedman has metallicized and screen-printed with her copies of famous logos – brings a contemporary ruin to mind.
