Pushing the Body – DUMBO First Thursday Gallery Walk

The New York Studio School Dumbo Sculpture Studio and Gallery is proud to present Pushing the Body a group show featuring a broad range of approaches to the sculpture in the regard to the figure by NYSS alumni. To a great extent the works originated from their experience working amidst the perspectives and guidance there of the sculpture faculty: Garth Evans, Bruce Gagnier, Jock Ireland, Leonid Lerman, Lee Tribe, and (myself) Jilaine Jones. I believe the artists in this exhibit have forwarded with maturity and passion the inclusive investigation at the New York Studio School of working from live models for, a new body (of materials), an image, a presence, a structural idea, an icon, an internal kinesthetic manifestation, a spatial interaction.

Featuring works by six NYSS alumni: Jan Abt, Maud Bryt, Darrel Hostvedt, Avner Levinson, Emily Nam and Lisa Sanders.
