Liz Shepherd gives us an installation remembering the “Ungathered” Thanksgiving of last year. Ed Andrews “Transplant” refers to his stem cell treatments in sculptural patterning.
This installation re-envisions the Thanksgiving table, as Shepherd experienced it in November 2020, as a place in disarray with many elements missing or in a state of confusion. The table is missing altogether.To be denied gathering in celebration or commemoration, to worship, observe or rejoice, is to be deprived of an essential part of what makes us human. It was a pandemic not only of disease, but also one of loneliness and isolation.
Andrews’ solo exhibition Transplant features a new series of polychrome wall sculptures constructed from perforated bronze, aluminum, and stainless steel. Andrews begins by cutting metal sheets into intricate geometric and organic shapes and applying hand-painted or acid-etched complex patterning in a bold palette. Transplant is an intimate term for Andrews after his stem cell transplant treatments.
