Groundspace Project is pleased to present a sculpture installation by Sharon Suhovy entitled “Worlds Scoop Their Arcs”. Ms. Suhovy’s large scale sculpture makes large the intimate language of the hand held fan, transforming it into an experiential space and place.
Please join us for the opening reception Saturday, May 31, 6:00 to 9:00 pm.
Worlds Scoop Their Arcs.
Though the arc may have many names, it is ultimately a mathematical curve, an illusive circle.
I have used the fan vault structures as a presidium support to stage the subconscious language of repetitive symbolic images. The radial wooden spokes of the fan reference the radius/time, while the closing and unfolding of the fan refer to the containment and expansion of the spiral/energy. The painted images are recurring hieroglyphics to decipher.
The nature of scale is an important factor in seeing the work as architecture. The viewer is engulfed in the center of the work, as a spoke in a fan vault, sustaining the weight and philosophy of the encoded voice.
Geometry presents formulas of pictorial diagrams which translate the sacred space of proportions. This may be physical measurements, but the radius, the diameter, and the circumference register conceptual measurements of psychological space, calculating the illusive distance from the center, to the edge of the arc.
My work is about what is within that radius, and how it is interpreted by the peripheral circumference or frame.
Groundspace Project is an alternative exhibition space located in downtown Los Angeles.
Gallery hours are Friday and Saturday, 1 to 6 pm.
