Altered States

Fellows Event

Mother Gallery is pleased to present Altered States, a two-person exhibition with new work by Adriana Farmiga and Yuri Masnyj. The show features drawings and paintings by Farmiga and sculpture by Masnyj. Altered States runs from 29 May through 27 June 2021. Mother Gallery is located on the ground floor of 1154 North Avenue in Beacon, New York.

In Altered States, Farmiga and Masnyj use their interdisciplinary sensibilities to create works that reexamine the quotidian and our built environment as spaces for meditation on states of matter and states of being.

Farmiga presents a monumental line of inquiry in a series of intimate still life paintings, collectively titled: MOST OF US. The works, installed like a sentence, run along the gallery walls in gradients of blues, recalling water and horizon lines. The blue expanse is punctuated with forms—tenderly rendered in bright colors—from repurposed carpet underlay. Farmiga explains, “Since 2016, I, like many, felt a disruption in the matrix of our collective psyche, and began a durational project that tried to imagine how identity and site can be reexamined.” The drifting shapes of unbodied states track a personal psychogeography—as a generous and fluid space that is ripe for collective reflection and discovery.
