Exhibition:
"On View: Judy Fiskin, Janet Pihlblad, Lance Rutledge"
Date
February 12 - March 27 1985
Description

"This current selection is not united by style or theme, but rather presents a range of interests and concerns. Sculptor Janet Pihlblad marbleizes found fragments of wood, which she then arranges, to suggest poses that recall classical sculptures. This juxtaposition sets up a dialogue between nature and art, and classical and modern sensibilities. Lance Rutledge, in his paintings, also suggests the human form by way of masklike shapes that appear to hover in barren, lunar landscapes. In the small, intimate black-and white photographs of California artist Judy Fiskin, the people are present only by implication. In Some Aesthetic Decisions, Fiskin has photographed flower and plant arrangements and other setups at floral shows or private residences, all of which reveal personal choices about how people display things."
