Peter Lipsitt: New Dimensions: Sculpture and Prints
February 7 – March 10, 2007
Boston, MA: Having recently reintroduced himself to printmaking, Peter Lipsitt is offering both new prints and sculpture developed concurrently. This exhibition highlights the visual relationships between the two chosen artistic arenas. Human scale and architectonic parts unify to create a visual music of lights and darks, interaction of solids and voids, subtle coloration, and lyrical lines. There is an evident dialogue with process between the two disciplines--spontaneity and immediacy of the inked monotypes on the one hand, and the manipulation of material objects in space on the other. Subject matter is affected by heightened sensitivity to political and cultural calamity. The smell of ink and oil are in the air.
One sculpture, a commanding assemblage of found lumber, plywood and new steel, soars almost to the ceiling, incorporating discoveries made in the print studio. Other works in bronze and mixed media, while intimate as maquettes, imply outdoor sculpture. Meanwhile, the various prints draw the viewer into mysterious, though light-filled passageways and cul-de-sacs, an illusionistic world limited only by the picture frame.
Lipsitt has public work sited in Hyde Park, MA, Cambridge, MA, and Key West, Florida. His work is in several collections including the Fogg Art Museum, and has been exhibited at the Rose Art Museum, among others.
Lipsitt’s work will be showing concurrently with the sculptures of Michelle Lougee.
