Darcy Gerbarg – Paintings in Virtual Space – Curated by David S. Rubin: Castelli Art Space, Los Angeles, CA
Whereas the real world is a physically non-existent but sometimes subtly depicted virtually in Gerbarg’s pictures, it holds an equal position with formalist abstraction in Gerbarg’s Inside and Outside Pictures. She merges the ephemeral information created in virtual space with real views of architecture and objects inside and outside a building, resulting in representations of Mixed Reality, merging the virtual and the real. As such, the Inside and Outside Pictures challenge viewers to determine what is real and what is an illusion, a puzzlement that is often confounded by the presence of photographed imagery seen through doors and windows.
