'Soft Structures' at Johnson & Johnson

For Women’s History Month, Uprise Art curates a collection of paintings on linen by Gail Tarantino and Carla Weeks. Both artists individually operate within a graphic geometric vocabulary of shapes that encode references to historic women and places. Carla Weeks investigates the regional architecture of New Mexico, while Gail Tarantino creates imagined correspondence between historically forgotten women of science. Through translations and transpositions, both Weeks and Tarantino redefine historically masculine industries and offer a spotlight to elements and figures that typically occupy the periphery.

“Inspired by female American astronomers Maria Mitchell and Henrietta Leavitt, Tarantino began by writing letters to Maria Mitchell and Henrietta Leavitt, which she then translated, letter by letter, into circles of color.”

“Carla Weeks’ paintings and prints on linen focus on architectural elements from small New Mexican towns she visited in the winter of 2017.”
