  • Borrowed

    Borrowed

    September 15 - October 1, 2017
    Opening Reception: September 15, 6-9pm


    Borrowed is a collection of works inspired by textile techniques and traditions. There has been a longstanding debate about the value of the fine or “high arts” verses craft or the “applied arts.” As a part of the later, weaving, sewing, embroidery, etc. have historically been relegated to a lower status than the more celebrated arts of painting, drawing and sculpture. The tastemakers and writers of art history, themselves predominantly Eurocentric and male, viewed textiles as too utilitarian, too feminine, and too steeped in tradition to be a valid mode of expression.

    However, many of today's artists are unconcerned with this distinction. Rather than embracing limiting philosophies and labels, these makers intersperse textile techniques, traditions and concepts into their art. With one foot in each world, these artists see the infinite potential of textiles to push their art in new and innovative ways.

    Borrowed includes collage, painting and sculpture by Jean Alexander Frater, Tegan M. Brozyna, Delphine Hennelly, Taylor McMahon and Rose Nestler.

    Borrowed is part of New York Textile Month. The exhibition and the opening reception are free and open to the public. Gallery hours are Saturday and Sunday from 12 - 3pm or by appointment. For press inquires and additional information please contact borrowedexhibition@gmail.com or visit here.

    This past year, Vito Acconci has been our Master advisor in the Brooklyn College MFA program. His words have guided us to perceive with new eyes and ears, open thoughts and minds.

    Big SMALL Works is a sampling of our most recent work.

    “Start thinking-about/dreaming-of/designing/making a light (or lighting): start by thinking of light as a point of light, a dot of light...But, as long as the light remains a dot, a point, a mark, then the light can’t go anywhere, it’s only a point-in-itself, it’s enclosed in itself, it’s stopped by itself...In order for the light to light, to be lighting, to be light itself, to make illumination, to give out light, it has to go out of itself, it has to throw light, like throwing one’s voice...So make a light that refuses to stay stuck in itself, make a point of light that becomes a line of light -- a point of light that stretches from here to there, that spreads from here to elsewhere -- a point of light that produces, that results in, a ray of light, a channel of light, a beam of light, a volume of light...Don’t stop now, don’t stop where you are: bring your eyelids down, start to close your eyes, your eyelids are quivering, your vision blurs -- in your mind’s eye, or maybe from under your eyelids, the point of light has deformed into a blur of light, a haze of light, an ooze of light, a fog of light...”
    — Vito Acconci

    LG Tripp Gallery
    47 N. 2nd St.
    Philadelphia, PA 19106


    LGTripp Gallery continues its tradition of a summer invitational. This exhibition is the intersection of the variegated histories of thirteen artists. The disparity of the rich and expansive career of the mature artist to the enthusiastic, tenuous beginning of the recent art school graduate, the educated and the self taught artists, expressing their creativity and experiences through a myriad of styles, mediums and techniques, each with their own individual approaches to abstraction. It is at this juncture of abstraction that their paths converge.

    This year RSVP 3 is showcasing thirteen artists, twelve exhibiting here for the first time. The exhibition will feature paintings by Ryan Cobourn, Paul Davis Jones, Michele Kishita, Yvonne Love, Mircea Popescu and Michael Yoder, drawings by John Dickerson, Robert Dodge, Joseph Iacona and Colleen McCubbin Stepanic, video by Victoria Pepe, sculpture by James Perry and installation by Tegan M. Brozyna. These artists are based in Philadelphia and the surrounding region.

    "Looking at topography (the “lay of the land”) or cartography (maps) should then resonate with our guts – our instincts, so to speak – and visually remind us that extremes are often incorrect: the truth is often somewhere nearer the middle. The meandering lines found in Tegan Brozyna’s paintings and works on paper are a fine synthesis of the linear and the circular versions of journey. In a real sense, rather than life being a journey, life is journeying: the passive becomes active. In Brozyna’s works, we visually walk with her over hill and dale; through the streets and avenues of America, all the while enjoying the view afforded by Brozyna’s joyful re-working of the landscape, and its realignment into a more ambiguous space. Painted on “bird’s-eye view” maps, the lines we actually traipse on morph into a more horizon-based experience: our progression is pleasant, but somewhat mysterious, because of this ambiguity. As the French post-Impressionist painter Paul Gauguin asks in his famous painting title, Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going?"

    -Timothy Gierschick, Curator
