Newish: new work by Carlie Trosclair
2153 W 21st St.
August 9-23, 2014
"Carlie Trosclair made a series of works that shes not shown before. Shes painted on some with gouache, layered some with fabric, and dug and scraped some things away. Shes tried her hand at making art in ways shes not done before. Still, to call her work new seems preposterous. Carlie makes art about old spaces using old processes and often begins with old objects that she re-works. She finds places and things with crumbles and patinas, and she piles and layers until the theatrical layers and the uncovered and discovered layers are all the same layer and a new integrated whole.
