'After Icarus'

When: Jan. 22-Feb. 27 2016

John Douglas, Elliott Katz and Mark Lorah occupy the Vermont Metro Gallery at Burlington’s BCA Center, and each has a propensity for the otherworldly. In Greek mythology, Icarus was the son of master craftsman Daedalus, known for flying too close to the sun while wearing wings constructed of wax and feathers. Katz’s sculpture, in particular, brings to mind the human mimicry of animals — neon straws sprout like quills or patches of fur, curved metal makes scales in the wall-mounted “Fish.” Lorah’s abstract collaged works in “petri dish colors” claim an entire wall, and video by Douglas disorients through sight and sound.
