Review by Camille LeFevre Together again, in their third joint exhibition at Rosalux Gallery, Laura Stack and Valerie Jenkins further their examinations into abstraction as a means to greater understanding of circumstance and existence. Stack studies experience on a cellular level, exploring the effects science (whether physics, medical practices, or chemical imbalances) has on the body, which she renders in forms and colors bordering on psychedelic. Jenkins, meanwhile, uses shape and line economically to distill the quotidian into expressions at once recognizable, mysterious, and profound.
