(im)permeable
Solo Show
Elizabeth A. Beland Gallery, Essex Art Center
Lawrence, MA
October 26-November 30
Gallery hours: M-F 10-6
Call for additional evening hours
Opening Reception October 26, 5-7 PM

From the press release:
"Laura Fischman’s paintings comprising (im)permeable operate somewhere between landscape and the figure. Fischman approaches “skin as the source material for abstraction,” and hopes to “… portray skin as space, place and topography, using it as metaphor for our own humanity and the beauty in our imperfections.” (Artist’s statement)

Covering and protecting everything inside our body, our skin also operates as a barrier to keep things outside of our body, allowing us to have the sense of touch. The largest organ in the human body, skin heals itself by forming scar tissue. “It shows the marks of a life lived – both from the inside out, and the outside in…(providing) a very thin border between the internal and external worlds.” (Artist’s statement)

Fischman’s investigation of skin is as much a psychological one as a physical and metaphorical one, as evidenced through the works’ titles: Morphology, Attack from Within, So Close to the Surface, Cria cuervos y te sacan los ojos (Spanish proverb, loosely translated to: “Raise crows and they peck out your eyes")."
