“What is that big, crazy thing at GRACE?” Folks on the street wondered what was going on as they watched Jacqueline Levine, in a whirlwind of activity, transform the gallery into a full-blown sculpture studio. Invited by juror Jefferson Pinder to create a site-specific 3-D work with “angst,” Jacqueline invented the wildly colorful and slightly menacing “Hollow.” She showed up with a huge crate of “eyeballs,” several eleven-foot “arms,” two buckets of plaster, pails of paint, and her competent studio assistant, Will. Together they erected the arms to form a loose cage and filled it halfway with eyeballs. Jacqueline spent the rest of her time slathering the form with paint and plaster. Now that it is finished, “Hollow” looks like a cross between the carnivorous plant in “Little Shop of Horrors,” a Dubuffet sculpture, and one of Jacqueline’s own action-packed paintings. To learn about the thinking behind the work, watch the video interview. And, please join us at the reception on Saturday, June 25 from 5 – 7pm to meet all the artists and the juror.
