Rosalux Gallery is pleased to announce Time/Keep, an exhibition of new work by Rebecca Krinke and David Malcolm Scott featuring a large-scale sculptural work by Rebecca and a suite of paintings and drawings by David. The exhibition brings together the artists’ shared interest in time and memory, with a particular interest in what can be remembered or recorded and what can only be sensed or imagined.
Rebecca Krinke presents a large installation, The Keep, which creates a domestic, psychological space of wonder and terror. The Keep continues her series of bed sculptures, although here a charred 4-poster bed hangs from the ceiling, upside down, bound by black-feathered walls - becoming a more abstract container/portal of space. Stacks of her dozens of black bound notebooks are visible but inaccessible on the burned wood floor below.
“Keep” as a noun originated in the Middle Ages, and was a place used as a refuge of last resort should the castle fall to an adversary. Rebecca’s installation evokes questions about what we keep, where we keep, and the costs of keeping: memories, secrets, notebooks, relationships, possessions, houses…This work and her larger practice is both highly personal and collective – in its explorations of private, public, and liminal space.
David Malcolm Scott presents a new series of works exploring time and place - featuring a 30’ long watercolor scroll that starts with the formation of galaxies and moves forward through terrestrial epochs. David then uses this piece with its timeline format to add small scroll paintings above and below to reveal memories and dreams of one person’s life, in this case, the artist himself.
Time and place are highlighted in different ways in David’s two other series on view: in “Weekly Commute”, vivid slices of the sky are seen framed by dramatic building silhouettes, and in the stylized “Landscapes”, the deep time of geological formations are juxtaposed with the more fleeting forms of forests, grasses, cities, and skies.
