This event has ended.

Calico presents Slip Plane, featuring recent works on paper by Caroline Burghardt. The presentation will showcase a selection of collages, paintings, and prints.

Burghardt’s current practice is primarily centered on collages as well as prints, often manipulated with painting and drawing. The artist combines countering dynamics in order to investigate ideas of simultaneity and duality. The work plays with the juxtaposition of oppositions such as: flatness and depth; illusionary space and tactile abstraction; weightlessness and solidity; delicate patterns and hard edge planes. The resulting compositions, while remaining harmoniously balanced overall, contain moments of surreal optical disjuncture - intersecting and bifurcating planes and lines often do not align or orient in a logical manner. Her newest pieces also reference the fractal forms of prisms and crystals, and explore the (im)possibility of visualizing the 4th dimension.

Caroline Burghardt’s work has been exhibited in numerous group and solo shows including: The DUMBO Arts Festival, NY; Luhring Augustine, NY; ISE Cultural Foundation, NY; Philadelphia Photo Arts Center, PA; National YoungArts Foundation, Miami, FL; Hasted Kraeutler, NY; A.I.R. Gallery, NY; The Wassiac Project Summer Arts Festival, NY; The Minnesota Center for Photography, Minneapolis, MN; Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts, Grand Rapids, MI; Center for Visual Arts, Toledo, OH; and Southern Exposure, San Francisco, CA. She was a founding member of the Brooklyn based Round Robin Collective (2008-2012) and with the collective organized several events and exhibitions including Ecstatic at Saint Cecilia’s convent in Brooklyn. She received a BA in painting and photography from Bard College and an MFA in photography from Massachusetts College of Art. She currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
