Halsey McKay Gallery | Sheree Hovsepian: Musing

Halsey McKay is pleased to present here Sheree Hovsepian’s second solo exhibition with the gallery.

About the Exhibition

Through varying processes of additive and subtractive layering, Sheree Hovsepian’s inventive approach to drawing, photography, and collage emphasize the performative and bodily implications of line and shape. In her newest assemblages, Hovsepian combines silver gelatin photographs and photograms married with fragments of ceramic, string, textiles, and wood. The prominent inclusion of clay makes a connection between photography and ceramics, both made by impressions (of light or of the hand) and with the use of chemistry and machine. The string drawings above and below the images evoke new-age craft, as lengths of string resemble rays of celestial light, beaming down on a compositions of earthly bodies.
