Laini Nemett: East of Sheridan

Laini Nemett, “Queensboro Seine”, Oil on canvas, 82 x 61 inches

Laini Nemett’s recent paintings and constructions piece together fragments of place to investigate ways of both conceiving and experiencing “home”.

Stairs, hallways, balconies, construction sites—details from interior and exterior spaces I pass through are the raw materials of my studio practice.

Extended time in various architectural cultures has shaped how I understand the idea of home. In São Tomé, Africa, collage-like architecture and organic urban growth allows each building to tell its own current narrative; in Baltimore, Maryland, buildings are bordered up and left as skeletons of a family’s history. In the boroughs of New York, old façades are painted away or torn down as new anonymous condo projects begin almost every day. I piece together fragments of place to investigate ways of both conceiving and experiencing “home”.

Jeffery Cooper, Introspection, 2013, Walnut wood and paint 18 (h) x 16 (w) x 14 (d)

Solo exhibition of recent wood sculptures by Jeffery Cooper.

About the Artists: Jeffery Cooper worked as a mathematician for 40 years before doing sculpture, but he does not attempt to use mathematically generated curves and shapes in his sculpture. Nevertheless the mathematical experience informs his work in an indirect fashion. He works in wood because it is always alive, always changing, through shrinking and expanding, darkening from light, and aging by weather when outdoors. Rather than carving in a single piece of wood, he usually forms a construction from many pieces, combining grains and figures in the wood. His sculptures are made to attract the eye and invite the viewer to look at details. The sculptures have associations beyond those of the physical object, but do not need extensive explanation. His work has been shown in local galleries and juried shows. cooperandhirshart.com
