"RENTED WORLD," Anne Sherwood Pundyk's solo exhibition of paintings, video, lighting, site-specific wall painting and blue gravel, The MAve Hotel 62 Madison Avenue (at 27th Street) New York, NY, December 1, 2012 – February 28, 2013, visible from the street 24/7.
Transitional states, temporary structures and a shifting sense of time and space are the properties of a rented world. For Pundyk’s RENTED WORLD, three of her large, gestural paintings create a self-supporting triangular prism. A sky blue triangle is hand painted directly on the back wall of the exposed glass hotel salon. On the floor, blue gravel forms a shallow triangle illuminated by raking light. Above the other elements a video montage loops on the ceiling. This flow of images replicates the free association of a changing state of mind, and, in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, the changing state of our city and of our world.
