Boston Sculptors Gallery is pleased to present two concurrent solo shows, “Rebar” by artist Andy Zimmermann and “Night Mind” by artist Rosalyn Driscoll

Rosalyn Driscoll’s solo exhibition Night Mind features three large-scale sculptures evocative of beds and the mind-body states that beds shelter: rest, sleep, dreams, intimacy, sex, birth,
illness, and death.

Port, with its hanging boats of skin and bones, suggests our journey through the life cycle. Night Mind, with its multiple layers of suspended fabrics, becomes a metaphor for the depths of our consciousness. Threshold, a wall relief with a cow hide lying beneath the sheets, considers our primitive nature. When we lie down and become horizontal, our relationship to gravity, reason, imagination, reality–and to each other–is radically different than when we are vertical. Beds provide sanctuaries for these vulnerable states, structures to hold the unstructured, containers for the uncontainable.

Zimmermann’s new installation uses photos of building sites as sculptural elements. The large-scale photo panels describe and encompass spaces through which the viewer navigates. ‘Rebar’
is the textured steel rod which is used to reinforce poured concrete in buildings. In this installation, we see rows of rebar in the photos of construction, and also as the structures which
support the photo panels, work lights, and divider panels in the gallery. The rebar creates continuity between the spaces in the photos and the gallery space.
