New Work / Slow Motion / What The Lips Can’t Say

A.I.R. Gallery proudly presents New Work, an exhibition of paintings by artist Ann Schaumburger, Slow Motion, an exhibition of new sculptures by Fellowship Artist Megan Pahmier, and What the Lips Can’t Say, an exhibition of new fiber works by Fellowship Artist Daniela Puliti.

In New Work, Schaumburger explores how color behaves and perpetually changes. Throughout this series, the artist uses a similar composition with varying color combinations. Each work is divided into blocks and every color receives a quantitative as well as chromatic valuation.

In Slow Motion, Pahmier presents a series of works that capture and record intimate gestures: squeezing, rubbing, wrapping, and stitching through everyday materials like newsprint, metal, plastic and window screen. Marking time through touch, her work seeks to reveal the animated properties of matter and activate the awareness required to experience such change.

In What the Lips Can’t Say, Puliti utilizes fabric, yarn, glitter, and other found objects related to craft and domesticity. The works in this show address the ways in which the artist was silenced, from the deeply personal assaults on their voice to the overarching patriarchal nature of their community.

The exhibitions will be on view until March 11.
