PILLS AND MOONS AND THINGS
BACK GALLERY EXHIBIT BY RACHEL GROBSTEIN
OCTOBER 5 - NOVEMBER 4
Next to Nothing is pleased to present pills and moons and things by Rachel Grobstein, who will fill the back room with her newest collection of wall pieces and bedside
tables. Her pieces are both and neither painting or sculpture - her "paintings" are actually highly intricate collages consisting of tiny painted images pinned into the wall.
Each pin casts its own tiny shadow and the painting floats off the wall in a fantasy whirl of tiny objects. Grobstein uses her wall paintings to reflect her concern over the
growing atmosphere of junk that is accumulating in outer space.
The bedside tables are catalogues of the daily world, where routine meets personal identity. Using pictures of real-life bedside tables and nightstands from strangers and
people she knows, Grobstein meticulously recreates the objects that remain closest to her subjects as they drift off into dreamland.
