Some Semblance of

JennyCJenny Carpenter and Merill Comeau‘s Some Semblance of  deploys a virtuosic range of work which conveys both the dailiness and disruption of family life. Between the two artists, we see drawing, collaged fabric sculpture, installations, and an evocative display of found/collected objects.

Comeau deconstructs and reconstructs textiles employing traditional sewing techniques to convey reordered narratives. Jenny Carpenter draws on veneer panel, and creates installations like the one above that embody the simultaneous protection and painful constriction of family ties.

At ArtSpace Maynard until May 26. Check website for directions and hours.
