Emily Weiskopf: Pixan Paths // Higher Roads Exhibition - Jenn Singer Gallery

Emblematic and emotionally explorative, the work on display at the Jenn Singer Gallery by Emily Weiskopf is informed by a range of different experiences and sources. Her time as a Printmaker is evident in the love of texture, technical ability, and color on display.

Using a device repeated through the work, a marathon track sliced and reassembled, she skillfully employs it to explore ideas across an impressive amount of materials. The device is inspired by the Mayan and Aztec ruins she encountered while in Mexico, and excited by the physical ritualism and connection to the past and the future. She toys with ideas of permanence, timelessness, ritualism, death and the underworld, hope, and the many paths through life.

Her work is strong, yet lighthearted. Layered but simple and accessible. There are a range of ephemeral ideas here held together wonderfully in tangible and solid pieces, given weight which matches their emotion. On display in the Jenn Singer Gallery, it certainly is a worthwhile trip into the Gramercy Park neighborhood.
