Susan Benarcik

One other exhibit to check out - Susan Benarcik's Collected Response exhibition at the Maiden Lane Exhibition Space (125 Maiden Lane, New York, NY). The show will be up through September. The artist's statement:
My sight-responsive installations stand as three-dimensional visual metaphors evidencing both societies manipulative properties and mankind's adaptability. The elements utilized in my work are reminiscent of objects found in nature or in environments used to direct or inhibit natural growth ie; greenhouses, laboratories, libraries, gardens. By re/assembling these collections of forms, the installations metaphorically contextualize the way environments, consciously or unconsciously, affect our being. Bent, forced, loved, nurtured, discarded, etc., are forces we constantly battle or embrace. Through material choice and structural manipulation, my installations strive to evidence (our) continuous adaptability.
