LES Art Week | Sherry Parker, Brooks Salzwedel, Cal Lane
Oct 17-Nov 25
Foley Gallery is pleased to participate in the first annual Lower East Side Art Week. We will be featuring solo exhibitions by Canadian sculptor Cal Lane, Santa Rosa based collage artist Sherry Parker and Los Angeles based artist Brooks Salzwedel.
Cal Lane creates larger than life metal stand-alone sculptures that capture a delicacy and curious approach to gender roles and conceptual art.
Lane’s tapestries, cut into harsh and often preternaturally large steel and iron structures, are sensual, alluring and deeply effeminate.
Collage is an adventurous rush for Sherry Parker. Chance is her muse. Parker describes chance as “a pervasive force in the sequence of my life as an artist...”
The medium of collage excites Parker because of the ideas that flow from chance: the serendipitous discovery of found materials, the random selection process, the fortuitous mistakes, the bringing together of disparate pieces to begin the formation of order out of chaos. Through collage, Sherry address the puzzle of life.
Brooks Salzwedel’s work focuses on natural and unnatural landscapes disconnected from their usual surroundings or places in time. Using a self-created process involving materials such as graphite, mylar and resin, tape, colored pencil, and ink, his work evokes feelings of desolation through haunted, dreamlike visions of otherworldly terrains.
Ancient trees, decaying flora, and icy mountains obscure long forgotten places and objects, at once familiar and unrecognizable, creating a space for rumination that challenges the relationship to their meaning.
