EXHIBITION IMAGES                 

In their art, Mari Rantanen and Bonnie Rychlak share little in terms of visual imperatives, execution, means of material, but they do share a studio in Long Island City and an abiding friendship that crosses some two decades. Where Rychlak's sculpture hovers between memory and allusion, Rantanen is resolutely buoyant; the incandescence in Rantanen's painting counters the elusive nature of Rychlak's sculpture. It's not surprising that within their practices there is little common ground, yet their differences fuel this exhibition with compelling counterpoints that are lush and generative.
