Installation views of Frederick J. Brown’s March 2015 Exhibition at Arthur Roger Gallery
This exhibition of new kinetic sculptures by Lin Emery features large-scale and pedestal works, as well as two suspended works. The elements in the sculptures continue to be derived from nature and adopt natural elements such as wind to set them in motion. The two suspended works – one ceiling- and the other wall-mounted – are motorized. This is the artist’s tenth exhibition with the gallery.

Austrian-born artist Erwin Redl works in both two and three dimensions, redefining interior and exterior spaces with his installations. Random Precision in the Metric of Time is his first exhibition with the gallery and presents a new body of work that reveals unexpected variances through time-based media and processes. Manifestations of rhythmic arrangements are explored using various media, either through movement or layers of materials accumulated over time. The works in the exhibition are divided into four groups: kinetic sculptures made up of arrangements of vertically suspended glass pipes equipped with Ping-Pong balls, fans and LED lighting; suspended sculptures which utilize different variations of intricately shaped planes; large-scale CNC palimpsest prints and reliefs carved out of laminated layers of thin Masonite.
Dawn DeDeaux describes the works in this exhibition, her seventh with the gallery, as post-apocalyptic constructs. Large metal panels present vistas of lost landscapes, both charred and barren and submerged in water. Lone, nostalgic guardians, first responders and galactic explorers materialize stimulating joyous memories in their highly decorative protective suits – the fashion of the future for hostile new frontiers.
Circulation of Light is Courtney Egan’s third exhibition with the gallery. The installation features three distinct projection-based works, which meld technology with nature. Crystal Gazers features groupings of cast glass medallions infused with light from a single channel projection cascading from forged metal branches. Fountain is a wall-mounted collection of cast glass “bottles” with projected water spilling from one to the next. In both works, the surface and depth of the glass break up the images and add dimension to the otherwise flat projection. Finally, Sleepwalker is a motion-activated video projection offering the viewer the experience of witnessing the budding and then contraction of a single bloom.
