Hosts: Anastasia Komar

September 3 - October 16, 2022
FRAGMENT is thrilled to present Hosts, Anastasia Komar’s first solo show with the gallery. Referencing science, theology, and history, Komar juxtaposes acrylic painting executed in short, vivid, and luminescent brushstrokes with glass polymer sculptures that echo forms at once biomolecular, mythological, and mammalian. Opaque and forgiving substrates rather than unyielding representational planes, the paintings play host to the hybrid, quasi-corporeal sculptures that protrude from the edges and envelop the surface, suggesting a parasitic or symbiotic relationship.
