PRESS RELEASE: Grace Weaver at S.P.A.C.E. Gallery in Burlington


April 1st - 30th
First Friday Opening, April 1st 5-9pm

Thin-Skinned is a solo exhibition of new paintings, drawings, and objects by Grace Weaver. The work examines the surfaces that separate the body from the external world—a straw, binoculars, a sock. Figures are isolated in tense predicaments—straining to smell, taste, or touch the undefined realm beyond their bodies. The works range from delicate line drawings to larger works, in which Weaver stains paper and stretches thick "skins" of paint, creating images which are at once goofily physical and mysterious.
