The Invariant SetLe Gallery October 9 - November 1 The Invariant Set Postulate is a proposed new physical law describing the universe through a geometrical framework that, in its simplest form, is timeless and fractilian. The Invariant Set uses this framework to describe and differentiate between the reality and the unreality of our universe and squarely defines both as rigid and unchanging. It is through the fields of theoretical physics and its applications that a whole new universe of knowledge has opened up which coincides with contemporary emergences of geometric abstract figurations in art. Anna Pantchev and James Gauvreau have developed a process-heavy body of work exploring these and other concepts of cosmology such as lambda and spirituality, reflecting on our ever shifting perception of the universe and it’s origins. Independently, Gauvreau, a street and installation artist and Pantchev, a painter, have been developing separate yet overlapping artistic practices, finding common ground in both the conceptual and aesthetic realms. Together, they have taken on The Invariant Set as both the name of this show and as their collective name for any future collaborations.

Emily Barletta's Horizon 
felt, thread, and glue 74 x 24 x 4 inchesArtists Statement:
"My art began as a way to filter pain out of my body through my hands. The tedious and meditative processes of crochet and embroidery helped me to be mindful and present while carrying on. Since then each day has become a project in counting the hours and my artwork has become a record for the passage of time and events that occurred therein.
The repetitive gestures, marks, and shape building techniques accumulated and combined in mass create larger works. However I try to focus on the individual movement as it is happening and not plan what a piece will look like in the end. The materials have a way they want to naturally move and grow. It is futile to try and work against them by planning. I view each object I make as a physical container instilled with the memories and experiences that occurred while it was being made. Through my art I create imaginary machines that organically grow and pattern to reference flesh, blood, muscles, cells, plants, topography, molds, and diseases.
These artworks attempt to evoke emotions relating to pain, love, loneliness, and endurance. They attempt to dislodge and find comfort in the things you cannot recover from; the things that are waiting in the dark when the quiet nighttime comes rushing in.”

"Designer Kristen Wicklund is showing a beautiful collection of crocheted cotton lace dipped in liquid porcelain. After Kristen dips the lace in porcelain she fires it in a mold; during the firing the fiber burns out completely and leaves a (gorgeous) hollow porcelain shell of lace.The show is taking place at greenwich house pottery until december 20th, so if you’re in town for the holidays, be sure to check it out!” via Design Sponge
