Gallery Talk with Carmon Colangelo and Thomas Sleet: Saturday, May 3 at 4 pm.

Storms is an exhibition of experimental mixed media prints by Carmon Colangelo created at Flying Horse Editions. Using the processes of relief printmaking and chine-collé, Colangelo has developed a unique vocabulary of architectonic forms and fragments, repurposing discarded laser cut plates from architecture models, calligraphy, and maps to create turbulent spaces. This body of work explores storm patterns and environmental instability, marrying random male and female hurricane names in the title of each work. These prints expand on Colangelo's interest in representing the dynamic shifts of our interconnected world.

In the Project Room, the gallery presents an exhibition Modem: Topology by Thomas Sleet. In this current body of work, Thomas Sleet continues an investigation into the structural dynamics of repeating forms and the interrelationships between resultant internal and external spaces. The evidence provided by these experiments evokes natural structure, synthetic assembly and the possibilities of interface between. This work is inspired by methods of building found in nature; I get inspiration from natural formations of earth, rock, and debris typically found along creeks, streams, and rivers. The materials Sleet employs: cement, wood, ground red brick, carpet and mirror  echo the colors, textures and surfaces of these natural topographies.

In the New Media Room, the gallery presents a video work Woman in the Dunes by Lana Z Caplan. Named after Hiroshi Teshigaharas 1964 film, which was based on the Kobe Abe novel Suna no Onna (1962), Woman in the Dunes is a looping video installation shot on the Amalfi Coast of Italy. In the video, a darkly tanned mother holding her child in her arms walks slowly into the deep azure water. Step by step they are subsumed, the child resting her head on the mamas shoulder, trusting her completely as they are increasingly submerged.
