Uneasy Sculpture

There is a subtly disturbing quality to Lindsay Pichaske's sculpture Ghost of Snow. The piece is an almost-lifelike version of a primate with an eerie white coat of fine hair; it's uncertain if it's the unnatural color or the small size (nineteen inches tall) that marks it as not right. But look into those eyes, and it seems as if the creature either just moved or is about to. That uneasy feeling is the point of Pichaske's work. She's interested in bringing you to the crux of two opposite thoughts: Is it alive or dead? Is it animal or human? A selection Pichaske's work opens with a free reception from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday, May 23, at Duane Reed Gallery (4729 McPherson Avenue; 314-361-4100 or www.duanereedgallery.com). The gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday, and the show remains up through Saturday, June 28.
Tuesdays-Saturdays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Starts: May 24. Continues through June 28, 2014
