Michelle Cooke: White Light

Opening reception June 12, 1-5 pm
Bareiss Gallery

The current exhibition at Bareiss Gallery offers a mini-overview of Michelle Cooke’s restless pursuit to exploit the potential of light. Her “relief” sculptures composed of glass slides transform this humble staple of science labs everywhere into magical, ethereal compositions in which cast shadows account for much of the impact. Using nothing more than ink or graphite pencils—and though rigorously abstract—her drawings nonetheless conjure with the play of light and shadow in the natural world.

Michelle Cooke belongs to both older and newer traditions of working with light as a medium. She has worked with glass, aluminum, feathers, brass, gemstones, and barbed wire, as well as the traditional mediums of graphite and oil paint. And in the course of a forty-year career, she has made exquisite drawings of pears, radically minimalist paintings, impossible-to-wear “armored clothing,” and installations comprising hundreds of glass slides.

On view June 12-13, 17-18, 24-25, 1-5 pm and by appointment.
