Gallery Talk: Painted Space / Architectural Space

April 14 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Painted Space/Architectural Space: A Conversation with Anne Sherwood Pundyk and Architect, Andrew Berman

Anne is joined by architect, Andrew Berman, in a conversation comparing their respective processes for creating meaning through the vehicle of crafted space. As a painter, Anne uses color, form, and texture to bring light into her paintings on stitched, cropped, and sewn unstretched canvas. Andrew designs unique spaces and structures which resolve purpose, place, and materials. His projects come alive in the light and gain character over time through use and weathering. Anne created the work in the exhibition in her Mattituck studio which Andrew designed.

This Gallery Talk is immediately followed by a live gallery performance by Moka Pot Duo!

Doors open at 12:30PM

11 West Gallery [11 W. Main St., Riverhead]

Space is limited. Please reserve ahead.

About Anne – An artist and writer, Anne Sherwood Pundyk brings together the traditions of abstract art, textiles and storytelling. Activated by color, her unstretched paintings are constructed from stained, cropped and sewn sections of drop cloth canvas. Elements of her studio work link directly to her photographs, artist’s books, writing and performance pieces. Based in New York, Pundyk has engaged in her art making, exhibiting and art writing over the last 35 years. She relocated her studio to the North Fork ten years ago. Curator Helen A. Harrison observed, “…[Pundyk’s] work suggests that understanding requires another interpretive tool, or perhaps a personal surrender to a deeper, less accessible, level of cognition.” The move has been the catalyst for a fundamental re-centering of her art around adapting everyday forms with an eye toward questioning convention. annesherwoodpundyk.com @anne.sherwood.pundyk

About Andrew – Andrew Berman Architect is a New York City-based practice focused on the realization of unique and finely executed buildings and public spaces. Since 1995 the practice has worked on a wide range of project types and scales for diverse clients; public, institutional, and private. Each commission is approached on its own unique terms through an intense engagement with user and site, drawing on the practice’s broad range of experiences in design and construction. Andrew Berman and a team of architects have worked collaboratively from conceptual design through construction to ensure the design intent is completely realized through the constructed work on each of our institutional projects.

Andrew Berman Architect’s work is defined by unique spaces and structures designed to resolve complex programs and sites. Each project is inextricably of its place. Each project speaks of its client, their culture, and programmatic needs. The building’s construction is intrinsic to its meaning and presence, as well as its practical resolution. Materials are invested with purpose. They come alive in the light, and gain character over time through use and weathering. andrewbermanarchitect.com
