The Hard Problem: Sara Coffin and Dani Levine

June 5 - June 23, 2018

Sara Coffin and Dani Levine both work with distinct methods of reasoning. Things are measured, balanced, weighed, tested. Colors are matched or suspended. Surfaces are scouted and developed. But the work always exceeds its parameters, and they work this way knowing an accumulation will acure. In a kind of single-minded push forward revelation only appears when all pieces align on top of which they were meant.
