DAVIS & LANGDALE COMPANY, 231 EAST 60TH STREET, NEW YORK, established in 1952, announces its forthcoming exhibition:
HARRY ROSEMAN: CLAY CLOTH SCULPTURES AND WORKS ON PAPER
which will begin Saturday, March 29th, and continue through Saturday, April 26, 2014.
The exhibition will consist of about ten brightly colored clay cloth sculptures and fifteen works on paper ranging in date from 1988 until 2011.
For many years, Roseman has explored the illusionistic depiction of drapery and its inherent contrast of hard and soft. The most visible demonstration of this theme is currently installed at the International Arrivals Terminal at Kennedy Airport in New York City. Now facing possible destruction, his 600-foot long relief sculpture, Curtain Wall, has been on permanent public display since its 2001 completion. Many of the works in the show are an outgrowth of that project, such as Plum, 2011, which capture the draping, folds and movement of the original Curtain Wall on a smaller scale.
Also on view will be preparatory drawings for the exhibition “Enfold” at Nancy Margolis Gallery (2011), in which Roseman pushed this theme further into illusion with the introduction of new media. These drawings provide a window into Roseman’s process of visual deception. In addition, a 1990 weave pattern etching and a number of finely detailed, geometric ink drawings, including Mark IX, 1990, will also be on view.
Roseman’s work is represented in many public collections, including the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the Achenbach Foundation for the Graphic Arts, Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco; the Cincinnati Museum of Art, Ohio; the Museum of Contemporary Art/San Diego, La Jolla, California; the Philadelphia Art Museum, Pennsylvania; and the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, Minnesota.
