Edwynn Houk Gallery is pleased to participate in EXPO CHICAGO Online and will present new work by Elinor Carucci (Israeli-American, b. 1971) and Jessica Wynne (American, b. 1972). Both artists delve into intense studies of objects as symbols in these latest series.
Carucci’s “The Collars of Ruth Bader Ginsburg” documents the collection of collars that became a celebrated and distinguishing feature of the late Supreme Court Justice over the course of her remarkable career. These collars allowed Ginsburg to “encode meaning into her dress — a sartorial strategy practiced by powerful women throughout history.”
Wynne’s “Do Not Erase” captures the chalkboards of mathematicians all over the world, highlighting the visual poetry and formal qualities of the complex formulas scribbled and erased on them. Mathematicians "see images first, not words. They see pictures before meaning," Wynne observes. This relationship between image and thought is one of the primary areas of investigation for her work.
