Barbed Wire, Ink, Rocks, Wood, Wax, Wire and String, featuring work by Gabriel Kulka and Jennifer Pulchinski, explores the minutely detailed and the enormously abstract. Sculptor Gabriel Kulka creates tiny sculptural assemblages with found objects, exquisitely crafted frames, and cast figures with out of proportion limbs. These little worlds are perfectly tattered and exquisitely odd. Jennifer Pulchinski crafts large panels of wood with abstracted prints of barbed wire rendered in layers of ink and paper, as well as woodblock prints of faces done in her trademark slightly off kilter way. Together, the two artists present a body of work both prickly and compelling.
Opening reception on Friday, July 10th 5-8p.m, in tart, room #107C of the Emerson Center, 111 S. Grand Ave., call 582-0416 for more information. The show will be on display from July 10th through August 12th.
