DRUNKEN GEOMETRY

Collaboration with Leslie Baum
devening projects + editions
Chicago, IL
January 31 - March 7, 2015

Drunken Geometry is a collaboration between Leslie Baum and Allison Wade that engages with the still life genre and its rich history. The table, the ceramic object, the textile - all are foundational elements of still life paintings and materials that figure prominently in Baum’s and Wade’s individual practices. Through these materials, the artists explore their affinities for particular forms and arrangements. Decisions about placement, proximity, and color guide the conversation, as well as a mutual impulse to uncover the sweet spot between object and image, dimensionality and flatness.
