Shulamit Nazarian is pleased to present a monumental work by Summer Wheat for The Armory Show: Platform section. Sand Castles is a new tactile painting that merges process and narrative to ponder human experience through various moments in art history. Wheat allows acrylic paint to ooze through fine wire mesh, creating a textile-like effect, rendering women in acts of labor and leisure. Sand Castles is a continuation of her on-going Fisher series, which depicts women catching and releasing fish as a symbol of fertility, creation, and survival.
