Ramon’s Tailor is proud to announce its latest show, Slide Carousel, a large-scale installation by artist Robin Hill. Hill will claim the space and blanket the walls with hundreds of graphite rubbings that she has obsessively taken from a singular slide carousel. Meet the artist during the opening reception and be confronted with the repetition and sheer magnitude of her drawings which will be layered to completely encapsulate our small space.
This latest work represents a new foray into drawing and perhaps a natural segue from her sculptural work. Hill has wrapped, folded and pressed paper around the carousel’s contours before rubbing it with graphite. When the paper is peeled off the carousel and flattened, the image is that of a sun with stylized rays, resolving into an outline of points, numbers and graphite haze. The resulting drawing ultimately maintains some dimension and becomes a casting of this iconic three-dimensional object.
Nicole Czapinski and Hannah Rothstein have teamed up on our latest W.C. installation No. 8, WC: TBD. This project is their first joint creative endeavor and the first time we’ve had two artists working at once in our small W.C. We hope you stop by and delve into the visual richness of the painted illustrations, cut paper collage and mixed-media creations and discover the hidden notes they wrote to each other. There aren’t many places where hanging out in the W.C. is so much fun. Through April 2014.
