Rebecca Bennett Duke has been using the space at Shoebox Projects to shift her focus from three-dimensional objects back towards drawing with an emphasis on making a connection between two-dimensional work (large format drawings), and three-dimensional work (the “Toys for Imaginary Children” series) while at the same time exploring the limitations of each.

Three-dimensional work accesses sublimated feelings in the viewer through materials that carry with them a complex history. Two-dimensional work relies on the fabrication of space to tell the same story. Both can lie, both can expand on the truth, I seek to find out how the two processes can inform each other beyond one simply being in service to the other.

Rebecca is building sculptures in the “Toys for Imaginary Children” series while she makes drawings that will both result in new sculpture and be a reaction to existing sculpture. The culmination will be a display of both and a written reflection on her findings on the relationship between the two inevitably intertwined bodies of work.
