Art In America

Rachel Beach

at Blackston,
29C Ludlow St

 

Though they're more or less human-scale (most are about 6 feet tall), Rachel Beach's new totemlike sculptures feel monumental in Blackston's compact space. Each piece in "Long Standing" is made up of painted plywood modules, some of which are left over from earlier sculptures. The works in the gallery's front room are more sturdy-looking and angular, relying on stacked chevron and X shapes with geometric cutouts, while the three pieces in the smaller back room are rounded and thus appear to be more precariously balanced.
