Boston Sculptors Gallery is pleased to present two concurrent solo shows, As Above, So Below by artist Johnathan Derry & Greater Than by artist Laura Evans

Laura Evans: Greater Than, a solo exhibition featuring the artist’s newest work. An expansive mixed media installation, Greater Than rambles across two walls and creeps out along the floor, energizing the gallery space. Largely composed of various types, colors and shapes of fabric, Evans’ wall “drawing,” also includes ribbon, wire,
rubber, bubble wrap, plastic, metal, wood, sticks and clips. As the title suggests, the complex whole of these parts represents more than just simple addition. Similar to many of her previous
installations and sculptural work, Greater Than utilizes humble materials and simple hand-built methods to create unexpected dynamic work that activates the whole gallery space. Related
small sculptures will also be on view.

Johnathan Derry’s sculptural structures embody dualism in their search to reconcile polarities within the self, and within society. The oppositional play of material and form creates tension, manifesting
in visual motifs such as black and white, heavy and light, over and under, wherein two disparate ideas must co-exist. Remnants of excavated topographical surfaces are evidence of what was
formerly above becoming artifacts resting below, implying erosion and temporality, as well as creation and regeneration. As Above, So Below represents the artist’s aspiration to alleviate the anxiety of human disconnect, and to find a deeper notion of self and connection to his world.
