Although Margaret Noel and Rocco Scary employ very different methods to create their works, the processes they use are inextricably bound to the concept and subject matter of their works. This Two-Person exhibition brings together work that begins in the form of wax, plant fiber, water, pigment, steel, rust, cut-up magazines, old toys, and the tinkling sound of a carousel that no longer exists.

Based in Brooklyn, N.Y., Margaret Noel incorporates imagery from industrial structures and western landscapes in her collaged paintings, while New Jersey artist Rocco Scary – who is known for his works on handmade paper – will show his sculptures, drawings and artist books with a focus on the specificity of place as a reservoir for memory.
