Roxanne Faber Savage
How often is it that you feel as if the simplest rules of geometry have been reinvented? These red boxes shift around space with the twisted perspectives of a 15th century Giovanni di Paolo landscape. They are concise essays on the shape that time takes in our perception of the world. Blotted, irregular, colliding forms emerge in a monoprint format that emphasizes the transient moment, each sheet an anthology of freeze frames.
Against a chameleon blue, an electrical tower vibrates in a lattice that could be woven of string rather than metal, and the ascent of lines zoom in some vertigo effect out of Alfred Hitchcock, leaving us grounded, but dizzy. This is illusion at its best, with the roller coaster thrill of surprise at seeing the mechanical landscape dance.
