The Nancy Margolis Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of Harry Roseman’s exhibition titled “Enfold,” December 8 through January 14, artist reception Thursday, December 8 from 6 to 8pm.
The main part of the exhibition will be a black and white line drawing painted directly on the walls. Also included will be works linked thematically to the installation. The site-specific drawing will envelope the gallery in draping and folding cloth illusions. The two-dimensional soft flowing drapery as it winds through the space creates an idea of three-dimensionality. Fascinated by the dichotomy of opposites hard, soft, rigid, fluid, Roseman makes an exciting partnership between these contrasting elements.
Roseman, Professor of Art at Vassar College, is known for his striking site-specific installations, painted or drawn directly on the wall. His most notable public installation was commissioned for Terminal 4 at John F Kennedy airport. Roseman graduated from Pratt Institute, NY and has work in many prestigious collections including the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, MA, Brooklyn Museum of Art, NY, Menil Collection, TX, and Museum of Fine Art Santa Fe, NM.
