Cari Rosmarin’s large-scale installation, featured in the gallery space On the Wall,will consist of two large horizontal collages depicting animals that are affected by climate change. Using image transfers and vibrant colors, Rosmarin’s collages first seem to be positive celebrations of many different species of life. However, upon closer inspection of seeing certain bugs and animals as black silhouettes, with others painted over, it is clear that the artist is drawing our attention to something deeper. The rough torn edges suggest a hasty violent act of destruction. The artist intends to draw our attention to how global climate change threatens the vitality of all life on earth.
Carter Burden Gallery presents three new exhibitions: Recent Work in the east gallery featuring Basia Goldsmith, Kate Missett, and Hanna Seiman, Secret Life of Colors in the west gallery featuring Blossom Verlinsky and On the Wall featuring Cari Rosmarin.
