This event has ended.

Asya Geisberg Gallery presents “Before It Sinks In”, an exhibition of paintings and drawings by Carolyn Case. This will be the artist’s third solo exhibition with the gallery. Through paint and pastel, Case articulates time as space: what came before sets a foundation for what comes after, and while the paintings offer a sense of resolve, the playful gaps between now and then suggest the possibility for infinite expansion. Where revision was once a process of retraction, Case now corrects through calculated and deliberate addition, forming an accumulation of marks that undulates as one brushstroke sinks beneath another. In doing so, the artist offers a reflective rehashing of the narratives the artist both creates and contends with in daily life - conditions like the confrontation between obligation and personal progression that cannot (or should not) be eradicated but can be reconfigured, reinterpreted, and remixed.
