MANUAL TRANSMISSION’s Fourth Gear show promises an out-of-this-world 3D bonanza! “Searching Space” is an immersive sculptural installation that surrounds you with visceral creatures and abstracted figures in dialogue with industrial objects and raw space. Using latex, neon, cast metal, and industrial materials, artist Samantha Leopold-Sullivan creates eerie and emotional forms that serve as externalizations of our creature-selves. Hand stitching and molding supports an intuitive approach that plays with scale, nuanced color, and uncomfortable formulations. Through these processes, Leopold-Sullivan sees her work as a form of ritual. She brings forth Shadows for confrontation, recognition, and eventual reconciliation. Provoking reflection and questioning in artist and viewer alike, her goal is for us to gain and share an understanding of our internal motivations and psychic strife.
FRIDAY, AUGUST 23
Show runs August 23-September 8
MANUAL TRANSMISSION is Red Garage Studio’s summertime series of monthly exhibitions and participatory events. Curated by Allison Ruby, each show features guest artists showing new work in the garage and gardens. The idea of these shows is not to simply exhibit work, but to use art as a catalyst for conversation and community connection.
