Rosalux Gallery is pleased to announce Time/Keep, an exhibition of new work
by David Malcolm Scott and Rebecca Krinke featuring a large-scale sculptural
work by Rebecca and a suite of paintings and drawings by David. The
exhibition brings together the artists’ shared interest in time and memory,
with a particular interest in what can be remembered or recorded and what
can only be sensed or imagined.
Rebecca Krinke presents a large installation, The Keep, which creates a
domestic, psychological space of wonder and terror. The Keep continues her
series of bed sculptures, although here a charred 4-poster bed hangs from
the ceiling, upside down, bound by black-feathered walls – becoming a more
abstract container/portal of space. Stacks of her dozens of black bound
notebooks are visible but inaccessible on the burned wood floor below.
“Keep” as a noun originated in the Middles Ages, and was a place used as a
refuge of last resort should the castle fall to an adversary. Rebecca’s
installation evokes questions about what we keep, where we keep, and the
costs of keeping: memories, secrets, notebooks, relationships, possessions,
houses…This work and her larger practice is both highly personal and
collective – in its explorations of private, public, and liminal space.
David Malcolm Scott presents a new series of works exploring time and place
– featuring a 30’ long watercolor scroll that literally starts with the
formation of galaxies and moves forward through terrestrial epochs. David
then uses this piece with its timeline format to add small scroll paintings
above and below to reveal memories and dreams of one person’s life, in this
case, the artist himself.
Time and place are highlighted in different ways in David’s two other series
on view: in Weekly Commute, vivid slices of the sky are seen framed by
dramatic building silhouettes, and in the stylized Landscapes, the deep time
of geological formations are juxtaposed with the more fleeting forms of
forests, grasses, cities, and skies.
Thanks again for your interest and support of my work and my Rosalux
all best, Rebecca
