Out Side, Michele Araujo, Lisa Sigal and Elana Herzog, at Studio 10.
Sigal’s sculptures incorporating screens and other objects of a differently structural, less porous sort appeared nearly stoic alongside Herzog’s wooden concatenations, which appeared simultaneously sound and precariously collapse-bound. Surrounding all these sculptures, then—and intermittently visible through them, too, in their resonant vibrancy—were Araujo’s color-splashed paintings, whose chromatics radiated out as their subtractive textures lured eyes back in.
