Cynthia Karasek “Women Living in Her Kitchen Floor” at A.I.R. Gallery
Women Living in Her Kitchen Floor, is about the psychology of space and the emotions and memories that can be evoked, activated, and distilled by the unique poetry of visual relationships. In a series of mural-sized pastel drawings we encounter female figures inexplicably inhabiting a grid of floor tiles. Some grasp for help while others dive for safety or perform mundane chores in various states of anxiety and distress. The cause of the disquiet may be found in the strangely beautiful sculptures that accompany the drawings. Structures made from galvanized buckets, wood, oil and mixed media allow us to gaze through the surface of murky pools into submerged worlds conjuring associations with images from a deep, and perhaps shared, past.
