A sculpture of woven glass melts into a solid block. A carved wooden rifle becomes a screaming goose. A wooden fish seamlessly transforms into an architecturally perfect house. In the Art in Wonderland Flash Gallery Event, each of the 28 featured pieces conceals a moment of transformation.
In Sylvie Rosenthal‘s intricate and detail-oriented pieces, animals transform into houses and a tumble of small chairs strive for balance atop a large pelican head. We are caught in a transformative moment as we watch the plight of the snake that has swallowed a teapot. Rosenthal’s vision is “infused with humor and steeped in the impossible,” and we laugh with her as she strives to find balance in the “ebbs and flows of personal gravity.”
