Relief: Joyce Robins, Harry Roseman

We are enormously pleased to unite the work of Joyce Robins and Harry Roseman in a two person exhibition devoted to the idea of sculptural relief. The artists, who are friends of long standing, have nonetheless pursued very different aesthetic concerns from one another in their respective careers.   A contrast in sensibility is immediately apparent.  But so too are significant common bonds: Both work fearlessly in fired clay with indifference to the perjorative craft connotations that medium might carry in some circles.  And more crucially, each explores in his or her own way the pictorial condition in sculptural relief, sensing the way in which relief is a tension-filled region on the borders of sculpture and painting.

This exhibition was organized at relatively short notice, so we are especially grateful to the artists for their cooperation and good will.  Special thanks are extended to Thomas Nozkowski and Benjamin Busch for their technical assistance to the artists in installing their works.  From the New York Studio School, thanks are due to Jennifer Junko Cooke, gallery captain, and Ariel Churnin, assistant to the gallery director,  for their hard work.  Thanks are also due to Meg Crane of Ponzi and Weill for her sensitive graphic design of supporting materials.  Unless otherwise indicated, photography is the work of Christian Carone to whom we are grateful.

Joyce and Harry are, by conincidence, co-exhibitors of a partially concurrent exhibition at the Lesley Heller Gallery, New York, with Will Mentor and Gary Stephan, which runs at 30 East 92nd Street through November 18, 2006.  We are delighted to salute that exhibition.
