This catalogue was produced for the exhibition On the Surface, presented at Typology Projects May 7-June 12, 2016.
In her surprisingly painterly photographs of industrial wood finishing rooms, Reisman makes visible, through the material’s apparent absence, the many layers, and intensive labour, that must be applied to re-surface wood products for commercial purposes. Conversely, her exquisitely tactile sculptures, left in various states of fabrication and finish, evince the vivid and varied marks of her experimental method of “drawing” into their surfaces with a table saw.
This exhibition catalogue includes a director's forward by Shani K Parsons, an essay by Daniella Sanader, artworks checklist, an interview with the artist, and more.
