212GALLERY is pleased to present the video projections of Michael Lipkin entitled, Sublimation. Lipkins’ 4 video panel suite throws reality into abeyance. His works highlight the ephemerality of  subjective vision.

Two video screens display minimal, black forms on white textured backgrounds; the other two panels pulse with smooth kaleidoscopic vibrancy. Abstraction. Time suspended. The glass objects that provided Lipkin with the luminous “still life” draw the viewer into continually-moving fuchsia, red, yellow and green explosions and shards. Transitions unfold. Smooth gold pans across the screen reminiscent of hard, smooth sand after a tidal retreat.

The physical space Lipkin conjures transcends objectivity; the calligraphic forms move with a meditational cadence akin to visual chanting. “I want materials and media to be the opposite of what they’re supposed to be,” says Lipkin. “I want sculpture to move – to change. I want to create still life’s that aren’t still. I want objects to articulate light. I want to see time…and capture change.”

This collection brings together Lipkins ongoing fascination with composition, light, choreography; time and movement. The rhythm and pacing of his videos are long enough to intrigue but gone before you have been sated. For Lipkin, art is, as in life, a balance between control, experimentation, and discovery. Sublimation captures the transformative moment between them all.
