BRONX, NY.- In their innovative Sunroom Project Space installations, Brooklyn-based artists Reade Bryan and Lauren Carly Shaw encourage visitors to Wave Hill’s Glyndor Gallery to contemplate the impact—whether emotional or ecological—of our physical surroundings, considering aspects of human psychology, domestic space and nature as they investigate Wave Hill’s own connection to history and the natural world.

Working from iconic building materials sourced from nature, such as plywood, flooring and sheetrock, Reade Bryan seeks to complicate the traditional binary between industrial and organic materials. His sculptural work mimics the appearance of such processes as erosion, tectonic movement and tree ring growth, lacing organic and manmade processes together to point to the relationship between them. In the Sunroom space, Bryan further investigates the apparent boundary between the natural landscape and the built environment, paying close attention to Wave Hill’s relationship to its natural surroundings. His sculptural installation, Inhabited, comprises a variety of sheet materials laminated, cut and stacked in such a way that they appear to be flowing into the space from the windows, or stretching, as might a canyon, from floor to ceiling. Bryan received a BFA from Parsons The New School for Design. He has had solo exhibitions at Signal Gallery, PACS Gallery and Brooklyn Fire Proof, all in Brooklyn, NY, and he participated in the Bronx Museum of the Arts’ Artist in the Marketplace (AIM) program in 2013.

Lauren Carly Shaw draws inspiration from the human figure and how it relates to its environments, both natural and built, as well as how emotion is made manifest through form. For the Sunroom, she creates a site-specific installation, titled Riven, based on the short story “The Yellow Wall-paper” (1892), by Charlotte Perkins Gilman, which chronicles the effect of forced confinement on a woman’s mental health. Set in the late 19th century, the story describes the central character’s descent into madness. Beginning to imagine women moving within the room’s yellow wallpaper, she ultimately believes herself to be one of them. Shaw transforms the gallery space into the story’s setting, installing two-dimensional elements, three- dimensional sculptures of the woman and the figures she imagines, and an animated component, all combining to create an immersive aesthetic and psychological experience of the protagonist’s confusion between her own body and the domestic space around her. The installation actively blurs the line between interiority and exteriority, inviting viewers to explore the fragmentation of the human form and psyche in a rich, deeply emotional way. Shaw received a BFA in sculpture from the School of Visual Arts. Her first solo exhibition, Twice Removed, was shown at the Active Space in Brooklyn, NY, in 2013. She has participated in residencies at the Vermont Studio Center, Johnson, VT; Starry Night, Truth or Consequences, NM; and Metafora Contemporary International Workshop, Barcelona, Spain.
