Equilibrium is a two-person exhibition featuring photographs by Scott Farrell and ceramics by Lori Rosen that each focus on the interactions and relationships of a contained and constructed environment in dynamic equilibrium. In Farrell’s work, the large glass windows of a greenhouse contain a lush indoor environment. These windows serve as a barrier, containing life and maintaining balances in temperature, humidity, and air quality. Farrell utilizes our separation from this balanced environment as a pre-existing “filter” – one that is whitewashed, streaked with condensation, or reflective – to create impressionist and abstract compositions. Balance is also central to Lori Rosen’s series Stepping Stones. Each reminiscent of actual stones glistening after a rain shower, her sculptures are comprised of delicately stacked harmonious compositions that appear to defy gravity. Rosen’s creative process plays with contrasting textures, luminous shapes, and bold forms, all emerging from her practice of yoga and meditation. Chance encounters unite both artists, as does the serendipity of the creative process. Rosen and Farrell seek these encounters as part of a lifelong search for balance both within themselves and the larger world around us.
Based in Huntington, Scott Farrell began his photography career in 2012 after 22 years in the media industry. Farrell has exhibited across Long Island and throughout the Northeast. Lori Rosen, whose studio is based in Sound Beach, has won multiple awards at Gallery North’s Outdoor Art Show and Music Festival as well as from the Westhampton Beach Chamber of Commerce.
