PRESS RELEASE: Anne Sherwood Pundyk's "Rapunzel in the Library" Installation


Hair as symbol of self-assertion

FLUSHING, NY, February 7, 2012 -- Queens College Art Center presents, “Rapunzel in the Library,” a site-specific, retrospective installation by New York painter, Anne Sherwood Pundyk.

The show includes a selective, interconnected placement of her paintings, My Atlas artist’s books and painting-based video artworks from 1983 to 2012. Core to Pundyk’s work is an explicit revelation of process. “Untangling the connections between my materials and sources suggests a model for escape from one’s own received ideas,” Pundyk says.

Pundyk has recently shown her work at Fordham University; Susan Eley Fine Art; The Philoctetes Center; Sideshow Gallery, Ruth Bachofner Gallery, Santa Monica, CA; Art Miami; University of Virginia, Charlottesville, VA; Washington and Lee University, Lexington, VA; and she writes regularly for The Brooklyn Rail. In April 2011, her painting-based video, “My Atlas: Lindsay/A Report to An Academy,” was given the Bronze Award at Artillery Magazine’s National Open Call Screening at The Standard Hotel, Hollywood, CA.

This solo installation will introduce a collaborative group residency, also on the theme of Rapunzel, with its own exhibition and performance on April 4th.  “Rapunzel’s hair is her means of self assertion and becomes a vehicle for deeper understanding,” Pundyk says.  A preview of the group show can be seen here
