Sonya Derman "Remainders" at Park Life Gallery

New Paintings by Sonya Derman

Opening Reception Friday January 20th, 7-10 pm
Show runs January 20th – February 19th 2012

Park Life is proud to present Remainders, an exhibition of new paintings by Sonya Derman. Sonya’s recent work is an evolving combination of paintings and texts exploring residual images that accumulate from everyday life. Using left-over, faded associations from daily life, fragmented memories from different places, and imagined narratives, the work shifts between the clear and unreadable; the real and the constructed; the concrete and the abstract. Her paintings can be read as fragments, entered into from various points; non-linear elements of an elusive and on-going narrative. The works allude to a temporary nature of interpersonal communications, forming, breaking apart while exploring the fragile constructions of meaning through images and words.

For this exhibit Sonya will be presenting works of gouache and acrylic on paper as well as an installation of found materials.

Musical Performance by Mason Lindahl @ 8pm. Also a book authored by Sonya Derman and Leigh Gallagher will be released opening night.
