Catskill Art Space Presents a Group Exhibition of Judith Henry, Samuelle Green and Lizzie Wright

February 4 - March 18, 2023 Artist Talks and Reception: February 4, 3-5 PM First Floor, Main Street Galleries

Catskill Art Space is pleased to announce its first exhibitions of 2023 featuring the sculptural work of Judith HenrySamuelle Green and Lizzie Wright. The exhibition will be on view on the ground floor galleries of Catskill Art Space, 48 Main Street, Livingston Manor, NY on February 4 through March 18, 2023. Exhibition hours are Friday and Saturday, 11am – 5pm, and Sunday 11am – 3pm. The artists’ works explore the intersection and divergence of contemporary sculptural practices utilizing found objects. Through playful and sardonic humanoid shapes, Henry employs detritus to examine the myriad identities of the self. Green, meanwhile, invites contemplation on our ontological relationship to her architectural forms rendered in found paper. Wright carries viewers up, her apparitions taking shape through discarded materials, illuminated with glowing light. Together, the presentation reflects disparate perspectives on what it is to be human, from human forms and experiences to visions of an afterlife.

Judith Henry’s Casting Call is a series of almost 300 small abstract sculptures of reclaimed materials, utilizing adhesive tape, paint tubes, cotton balls sponges, etc. These figures create anthropomorphic forms that represent complex personas and the diversity of shapes. The work examines the friction between interior life and the public self. The series explores personal identity with surrogates which take the form of masks, drawings and papier-mâché sculptures.

Samuelle Green will install an immersive installation of paper forms, utilizing discarded books to create an encompassing architectural environment in the gallery. Each square foot of work uses nearly 140 individual pieces of paper to construct a transformative space for audiences. Green’s organic and geometric work explores the interaction of the human-made and non-human visual world languages.

Lizzie Wright’s Frankenstein-like constructions are brought to life by flowing electricity. Her use of glowing and reflective light is an effective conduit for mood, tone, and emotion. Wright’s innovative use of light is paired with scrap or found materials, challenging audience’s concept of what is damaged. The often transparent forms take on a sense of spirituality, evoking an other-worldly presence.
