In the lobby of the Conventus Building on the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus, a crumpled ribbon of multicolored fabric stretches across the walls of the airy space. The ribbon, meticulously painted by Buffalo artist Terri Katz Kasimov on 300 feet of canvas, is meant to evoke the construction process and its fusion of disparate parts into a cohesive whole.
Those intrigued by Kasimov's installation can learn more her work in an exhibition running through Oct. 28 in Eleven Twenty Projects, John Fatta's pristine, white-walled space in a former Main Street auto showroom.
Kasimov's new work is a series of collages constructed from her old drawings, saved papers and other abandoned bits of detritus she has arranged in new ways.
"These new works imbue a controlled randomness, arbitrary or ambitious to the casual eye, but are in fact pre-planned and allegorical," a release from the gallery reads. "Each fragment of paper represents a point in time, and the marks and compositional flow of each piece carries an immediate, organic energy."
Kasimov will give an artist talk in the gallery on Oct. 15.
