Breaks, Seams and Boundaries

by

comment
Everything on display at Duane Reed Gallery is tattered, torn and broken. But that's by design -- the group exhibition Breaks, Seams and Boundaries explores the application of carefully controlled forces to transform familiar artistic forms into something new and surprising. The graceful curve of Steven Young Lee's Moon Jar with Octopi erupts outward in shards on one side, apparently rent by the tentacles of the ghostly octopi that adorn the outside. Nothing of the jar's beauty is lost in this destruction; instead the jar seems caught forever in the midst of a sharp exhale.

Opening reception 5-8 p.m. Fri., Feb. 27. Continues 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Tue.-Sat. (Feb. 27-Apr. 4). Duane Reed Gallery (4729 McPherson Avenue; 314-361-4100 or www.duanereedgallery.com). Free admission.
Tuesdays-Saturdays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Starts: Feb. 28. Continues through April 4, 2015
