Erwin’s Niches

Erwin

Gail Erwin‘s niche sculptures at 6 Bridges Gallery in Maynard explore the hidden, often very private, nature of prejudice. The aggregation of tiny boxes shows us intimate scenes of cruelty or implied violence. Nails, charred wood, chain, and wire are sometimes dusted with glitter or placed against shiny foil, creating an eerie attractiveness. Erwin also shows her signature cyanotypes; this new series of studies of empty windows and doorways often represent scenes of former violence, such as the homes of the ill-fated Cathars, or long-dead Celts.

The cooperative 6 Bridges Gallery presents Niche: Cyanotypes and Constructions through April 15, 2017.  Gallery hours are Tuesday 11-3, Wednesday-Friday 11-6, Saturday, 10-5.
