The Slim-Waisted Gate

February 4 - March 18, 2017 at C. Grimaldis Projects

In my undertaking I have chosen words carefully. Not as a surgeon who arrays his instrument to dissect a cadaver under unblinking light, but as a thief who works in the dark… I have knelt at the threshold of this slim-waisted Judas gate, this hourglass filled with night, and found a way through the void between evening and morning star.
Peter Grey, Apocalyptic Witchcraft

C. Grimaldis Projects is pleased to present The Slim-Waisted Gate, a group show of works in the dark. The exhibition features recent paintings and sculpture by Dan Herschlein, Ann Greene Kelly, Chris Lux, Nick Mayer, Vanessa Gully Santiago and Flannery Silva which explore themes of twilight, half-consciousness, and the liminal threshold between logic and the sublime.

Some works in this exhibition require darkness as a condition of their presentation; others deal thematically with dim light. The Slim-Waisted Gate fosters organisms which grow in an obscure corner, creating a zone in between times in which one’s identity casts a different shadow.
