Bridgette Mayer Gallery is pleased to announce its ninth solo exhibition with contemporary artist Rebecca Rutstein. Nexus will be on view from Tuesday, February 1 to Saturday, March 19, 2022, with extended hours and an artist reception on Friday, February 4 from 5:00 to 7:30pm. The exhibition features 22 new paintings by Rutstein, as well as a special sculpture installation in the gallery’s Vault Space. This new series comes shortly after several major public art projects for Rutstein, including a residency with the biotech company Integral Molecular, a commissioned mural Convergence on the AT&T Building in Philadelphia, and a large-scale outdoor sculpture commissioned for The Bower in Pennsylvania.

Rutstein describes her exhibition as follows:

Worlds are happening alongside ours that are invisible to us. And yet there is an interconnectedness of all things in the natural world. My experiences with scientists at sea and in laboratories have changed the way I see. I’m fascinated by these complex yet hidden networks… within our bodies, where cells form microsocieties, and in the deep sea, where microscopic life create webs of interactivity that mediate processes on our planet. These paintings are a portal into those worlds.
