IN THE GALLERY: Three gallery artists present recent work. Marais works with haunting animistic images from folklore of her native South Africa and will show new work in soft sculpture using drawing and sewn paper. Simmons-Jimenez will exhibit a piece created specifically for the project room along with other new works, in various media, that adress man’s paradoxical relationship to nature and technology through the interaction of line, form, and space. Tanemura’s new series of photographic images titled “Melisa at 19” uses nostalgic objects as metaphors in contrast with modern lifestyles as she continues to explore coming of age imagery in young women.
