Join us at LivingRoom Realty on Saturday, September 29th from 6 to 9 pm for the opening of Marianne Fairbank’s solo exhibition, “More Air-Like Than Water.”
The work presented in More Air-like than Water explores the deep meaning in geometry and abstraction as they relate to textile and graphic design vocabularies. Fairbanks approaches weaving, painting, photography and sculpture with a playfulness of process that destabilizes conventional value systems of hard and soft form-making while digging into more philosophical understandings of material vs. immaterial.
The viewer is asked to consider object as photo, photo as pattern, pattern as dimensional. Confronted simultaneously with macro and micro, foreground and background, the view is disoriented as they search for a focus. While the work fights for perceptual attention, it also encourages a deep engagement with our material world in the construction of philosophical belief systems and physical realities.

Closing Tea: Saturday, October 27th from 1 to 4 pm at LivingRoom Realty.
