This event has ended.

Amos Eno Gallery presents OTHER SPACES, an exhibition of works by 2017 Pratt MFA Fine Arts graduates Gwen Shockey, Rosie Quick, Lia Kim Farnsworth, and Drake LaBry.

OTHER SPACES examines imagined environments that involve a departure from the specific individual moments, cultural phenomena, or natural elements they reference. Momentary collapses between the spaces and their points of origin confront loss. In Shockey’s work, references to experiences of celebration and mourning in queer culture and her Jewish heritage come together through the metaphor of the disco ball and shattered glass, while Farnsworth’s work presents substitute versions of nature that question the consequences of a shifting natural world. These spaces also stimulate meditative reflection and celebration. Quick uses the act of painting to reexamine past moments, frozen within a photographic frame, while LaBry calls on patterns that emerge intuitively from his background and experiences to create abstractly architected spaces.

The works on view include an installation of collaged sculptural works by Gwen Shockey; a large format mixed media piece by Rosie Quick; a new video and sound piece by Lia Kim Farnsworth, created during a residency at the Vermont Studio Center; and a vibrant new series of paintings by Drake LaBry.
