Show statement:
An island represents a detached form surrounded by space, an oasis is a pleasant area in the midst of a difficult space, and a mirage is an optical illusion; the work of Krueger, Weissberger and McShane occupies a place that is simultaneously all three.


Krueger, McShane and Weissberger explore images and objects in ways that challenge notions of representation, often employing the languages of sculpture, drawing, painting, photography at once.

The three artists live and work in the very different environments of Western Pennsylvania, Southeast Texas, and Prairie state Kansas, yet continue to cross paths; McShane and Weissberger met while at MacDowell Colony residencies in New Hampshire and Krueger and McShane got to know one another at the Frans Masereel Residency in Belgium. Among many exhibitions, all three artists have exhibited at the Drawing Center in NY, Krueger is represented by the Steven Zevitas Gallery in LA, McShane by Paul Kotula Projects in Detroit, and Weissberger is a Guggenheim recipient.
