Carter Burden Gallery presents On the Wall featuring Cari Rosmarin. The reception will be held June 30, 2016 from 6 - 8 p.m. The exhibition runs from June 30th through July 21st at 548 West 28th Street in New York City. The Gallery hours are Tuesday - Friday, 11 a.m. - 5 p.m., Saturday 11 a.m. - 6 p.m.
Cari Rosmarin’s large-scale installation, featured in the gallery space On the Wall, will consist of two large horizontal collages with two collages on fabric depicting animals that are affected by climate change. Using image transfers and vibrant colors, Rosmarin’s collages first seem to be positive celebrations of many different species of life. However, upon closer inspection of seeing certain bugs and animals as black silhouettes, with others painted over, it is clear that the artist is drawing our attention to something deeper. The rough torn edges suggest a hasty violent act of destruction. The artist intends to draw our attention to how global climate change threatens the vitality of all life on earth.
