Opens Tonight, Feb 16, 6-8p:Lyne Lapointe : Selected WorkJack Shainman Gallery, 513 W20th St., NYCThe show examines the metamorphic states of memory and healing though a collection of recent works on glass, wood and mixed media. A new series of paintings, La Pierre Patiente, form a pictorial installation in the main space. This work explores Lapointe’s long standing interest in concepts of darkness, light and memory. Each work presents a superposition of two images. The first image is painted on a wood panel. The alternate is created with pins spiked into the wood whose heads have been coated with phosphorescent pigments. Through the use of this pigment, and when subjected to alternating darkness and light, each piece is transmitted into an unexpected sequence of fleeting impressions, the deletion of a figure, the appearance of another pattern or the evocation of its absence. -thru Mar 17
