"Time and Space: New Work by Cheryl Goldsleger, John Spinks and Andrew Topolski"
2001-02-13 until 2001-03-17
Rosenberg and Kaufman Fine Art, Ltd.
New York, NY, USA United States of America

This group exhibition brings together three prominent contemporary artists who are each concerned, in very different and personal ways, with the concepts of time, space and memory. Cheryl Goldsleger uses her signature encaustic painting technique on linen and paper to further explore her fascination with labyrinths and mazes, with all of their visual, psychological and spiritual implications. The intensely worked and layered surfaces, contemplative and poetic, evoke the passage of time and buried memories. Goldsleger consistently exhibits her work throughout the United States and Europe, and is very well represented in major public and private collections including The Brooklyn Museum, North Carolina Museum of Art, The High Museum, Albright Knox Gallery, Rhode Island School of Design and the Israel Museum among many others.

Oceans of text border yellowing pages, reconfigured maps, parts of his father's diary and a cool but evocative palette in the collage on canvas works by John Spinks. Honoring his own Irish tradition of narrative history, Spinks' combination of personal and found documents assert their own sense of historical presence. His self-awareness and appreciation of formalism, and his quiet celebration of undisclosed personal and public histories bring a powerful contemplative stillness to the work. John Spinks has been exhibiting his art in the U.S. and Europe for the past decade, and is included in many distinguished private and corporate collections.

Andrew Topolski, considered by many to be among the most original and inventive artists working today is known for his challenging and elegant mixed media drawings and sculptures, both of which are concerned with exploring a process as it evolves over time. Topolski's work is anchored in his formal music training and a strong interest in architecture. Using text as his armament and structure, much as others might rely on landscape or the figure, Topolski has incorporated such material as the Periodic Table, scientific and political tracts on nuclear energy or space exploration, and most recently, the latitude and longitude of personally and politically significant places. Andrew Topolski has an extensive exhibition history in this country and throughout Europe, and is included in distinguished public and private collections worldwide.
