This event has ended.

Dacia Gallery presents "Vanishing Point" a solo exhibition by collaborative artists and sisters Dana and Ruth Kleinman. Their work combines 3D metal construction and oil on canvas to create multiple paneled wall sculptures that varies in depth off the wall. From a distance the work looks sleek and high contrast with hyper-pigmented paintings showing through cutouts in shiny metallic surfaces, yet up close the viewer is struck by hand sanded intricate patterns softening the metal and textural multilayered paintings. In addition to the large-scale aluminum work, this exhibition also highlights two smaller series of works. Seemingly opposite of the large scale works, the silver pieces explore extreme intimate space. Small enough to hold in the palm of your hand, yet strong enough in presence to hold a large wall. The preciousness of each piece is furthered by the fact that the metal used is 100% sterling silver. The new two-dimensional series, “Contingence” in aluminum and oil on wood functions as a lighthearted departure from the three dimensional works. These small panels are painted in a spectrum of bright colors and are meant to be rearranged and grouped in any number of orientations. Often working in diptych format, with two different mediums and two individual artists, the work certainly references any number of binaries, yet talks more about connection than duality. Pattern, color, and mathematical constructs tie the panels together to function as a whole. Intersecting lines may be specific cross products in geometry, yet also represent the two sisters with paths crossing, or on a different level, how any seemingly separate entity can come together in space and time.
