LINDA GOTTESFELD TRAFFIC
OPUS Projects is pleased to present first solo exbhition at OPUS, Traffic.
An opening reception will be held on Thursday, September 5, 6-8pm.
Linda Gottesfeld's series of paintings on scrap metal and paper in Traffic present immersive movements of action, conversations at high speeds and in complicated nets of communication.They address places from the past with current images; media, medium, and memory are warped in reused fragments.
Traffic embodies the sense of past as present, the surface emerges with this confluence of site and time.
The past is never dead. It's not even past” William Faulkner
1. Movement of vehicles
3. Traffic is a state of attempting to move on.
