This event has ended.

Re-imagining the basics of structure and image, Rachel Beach's skillfully constructed architectonic objects curiously hover between sign and real, visible and invisible. Highlighting the tension between artificial and natural, Beach’s new series of sculptures methodically combine contrasting surfaces of trompe l’oeil veneers with salvaged construction beams left in their aged condition. Brightly painted edges carve out illusions of space from the chunky cuts of wood. In dialogue with the sculptures are new silkscreens in which monochromatic patterns of formal geometric abstraction become symbols of space.
