Lisa Perez, Peter Owen
From our review of Lisa Perez "Still even now" and and Peter Owen "Collected Stories" at Providence's 5 Traverse gallery:
The elegantly simple shapes of Providence artist Lisa Perez’s shallow wooden wall sculptures take on charming, wobbly, bubbly forms with uneven edges, as if they were worn away by rivers.Read the rest here.
"Liken" (2009) is a stack of oval sheets of gray matte board floating above the lower left side of a rectangularish unpainted wood board. The gray ovals suggest a stack of stones. Where a shadow would be between the gray paper ovals and the wood board is a patch of red that flickers out from its hiding place like a flame.
