In the Precipice

Foley Gallery is pleased to present “in the precipice”, a solo exhibition featuring new work by New York City based artist Karen Margolis. This will be the artist’s first solo exhibition with the gallery.

“in the precipice” references an approaching transition, nearing a threshold between mindfulness and the yearning to escape into an abyss of fantasy or delusion. Margolis encodes her thoughts and feelings into colored dots as a means of plotting out the changing landscape of her emotions. Translating meaning into pattern, she offers a glimpse into the ephemeral nature of the mind's operations.

After scribbling themes from her writings onto the forms, Margolis refers to a Flow Chart she devised, which assigns every emotion a Pantone reproducible color, and translates her feelings into colored dots directly onto the composition. At this point, her process transitions into choreographing color mergers. The new works in “in the precipice” continue to use Karen’s flow chart of emotions, but have evolved into more interpretive narratives, relying as much on texture and form as on color to convey meaning, albeit, encoded. This work was developed more instinctually and extemporaneously, mostly unmediated by cogitation.
