Opening: Tumble, Ingrid Tremblay & Allison Wade

Ingrid Tremblay & Allison Wade
March 4-April 1, 2017

Allison Wade ( pays attention to the material profile as much as Ingrid, but there is even less story. Many of Allison’s objects stretch in this direction or that, often on the verge of toppling over. They waffle in the wind. Allison translates her objects into drawings. Or perhaps she draws to direct herself in the production of objects. The swoops and stains of ink are not nearly so tortured as that word study would have it seem. Nor do I get any sense that she is producing many sketch moments to shop for the good ones. More like seeing the architecture clearly by seeing the entire block where the building resides. The one we see first dwarfs the bit next door and shares an embellishment motif with the one near the corner. Of course they aren’t really like architecture, and maybe the rendered objects aren’t terribly like objects. She draws as a method for observing separate from sculpture as much as she does in setting herself up to make objects. The drawings visualize space. In wandering through and around the possible perspectives we begin to locate a point of view.
