Rife with paradox, the finely-detailed metal sculptures by Cal Lane (Wheel Barrel, 2005 pictured) and Elissa Levy's military-themed felt pieces, mix delicate filigree with more substantial materials and topics. Their complimentary work is the subject of a show called "Purfle" that opens at Foley Gallery in NYC tomorrow, 2 November 2006 and runs through 6 January 2007. Lane will show a series of plasma-cut objects that includes an I-beam, steel car parts and a dumpster. The industrial themes are a thread in Lane's work; older pieces include shovels, tires and dirt.
Opening Reception: 2 November 2006, 6-8pm
