Lauren Grossman Ghost Variations

September 5 to October 11, 2014
Artist’s Reception, Friday, September 5,
6 to 8PM


Platform Gallery is pleased to present our second solo exhibition of works by Lauren Grossman. The new work in Ghost Variations explores the materiality of glass in combination with other media. Exploiting the transparency and visual lightness of the material, Grossman considers ideas surrounding ‘giving up the ghost’—including the last breath, final words, the problems of the insubstantiality of the ‘spirit’, the ever-elusive Holy Ghost, as well as the literal breath required to inflate a hot glass bubble.

Lauren Grossman has been exhibiting her work for over thirty years in diverse venues as the Wright Exhibition Space, the Kirkland Art Center, the John Michael Koehler Art Center, Oregon State University, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Cornish College of the Arts, University of Puget Sound, as well as galleries in the Northwest and nationally. Her work can be found in the collections of Microsoft, the John Michael Kohler Art Center, the City of Seattle, Special Collections at the University of Washington, the Matthews Collection at the Arizona State University, as well as several private collections.
