Artists_Marilyn Levine

25 May

The sculpture of Marilyn Levine is concerned with conflict: Conflict between visual and tactile, between reality

                               and unreality, between presentation and representation. The material illusion confronts our assumptions and

                               makes us question our perceptions.

                               It asks us to examine a thing beyond it’s perceived usefulness as an object and then invites us to look deeper

                               at the purely sensual aspects of that thing; form, surface, texture, presence. It knocks us off balance and then

                               replaces our footing with a wholly new ground
