Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present Shaping, a group show curated by Suzanne Laura Kammin. This exhibition features six artists who are "shapers", that is, engaged in the uninterrupted activity of shaping. They embrace the inherent uncertainty of the process, exploring tenuous relations and contrasts of medium, surface, color, and physicality. As individual artists, they share a strong affinity for the metaphoric potency of abstraction, and the power of the charged object. In the diversity of their various investigations, their work conveys a rich range of approaches to this shared poetic impulse. Their constant conviction is to the necessity of giving shape.
