Hersh Fine Art is pleased to announce Fire & Fiber, an exhibition of ceramic sculptures by Susan Kadish and fiber art by Lauren Rosenblum, both of Long Island, NY. This exhibition will run from September 16-October 26, 2017, with a gallery reception on September 16 from 6-8pm.
Rosenblum and Kadish have mastery of an indirect process. They arrive at their work, not through direct visualization of what the outcome will definitely be, but through a skillful manipulation of an uncertain process. In the dyeing of fabric and the fire of the kiln, there is a mysterious alchemy that occurs that cannot be entirely controlled. Kadish and Rosenblum are the directors of processes that are rooted in tradition, but break away into inventive, unchartered territory, with exciting results.
