The Christopher Henry Gallery in New York is showing a cool exhibit currently by Boston based artist Heidi Whitman. Entitled “Shadowland,” Whitman’s technique involves painstakingly hand-cutting elaborate shapes out of painted paper. The artist’s intricate creations chart out a matrix of roads resembling modern city grids, which are evocative of spaces both seen and unseen. These multi-dimensional, delicate structures juxtapose flat well-defined surfaces with breaks in the sheets of paper, directing us into the intangible and otherworldly landscape of shadows, which the floating shapes cast.
“Shadowland” by Heidi Whitman is showing at the Christopher Henry Gallery in New York until April 23, 2011. While you are inside the gallery, don’t forget to visit the second floor and see Olek’s “Knitting Is For Pussies” exhibit which will be on display until the end of May, 2011. The Christopher Henry Gallery is located at 127 Elizabeth Street in Manhattan.
