Art Out: Tanya Marcuse - Woven
Julie Saul Gallery is pleased to present Woven, the fourth solo exhibition of work by Tanya Marcuse. Woven is conceptually linked to Marcuse’s Fallen, shown at the gallery in 2014, but takes that project’s dense arrangements of flora and fauna to a newly immersive scale. These exquisitely detailed photographs, each the product of weeks of collection and composition, are perched between the natural and the fantastic, evoking a Boschian world of allegory and fable.
Although Marcuse composes all her pieces on the same wooden structure, each incorporates a distinct set of conceptual and visual ideas. Some are densely packed with both living and rotting plant and animal life, while others are more open, sprinkled with brightly colored flowers or verdant moss. In these elaborate artificial tableaux, the inexorable movements of nature are shown forth and growth and decay, beauty and terror, life and death are woven together.
