Zoya Tommy Contemporary opening reception: Scott Rosenberg: Snail Trail
Scott Rosenberg's ceramic and mixed-media sculptures border on the fantastic. While deceptively crude and sometimes messy, he sculpts with purpose and sophistication, creating works that are enigmatically fun and playful but with hints of a lurking moodiness underneath.
This exhibition presents aspects of the average middle class garden intermixed with ancient pottery designs and seemingly banal everyday found objects mingled together, suggesting greater concepts such as male and female, and life and death. Rosenberg rarely overthinks his work; he creates pieces that lack pretension and avoid complex metaphors.
On view through Aug. 9.
