Introduction by NICOLE PEYRAFITTE
ABOUT Peep/Show #7
Lori Anderson Moseman’s compositions always offer particularized insights into the familiar. In “Orbit Limits” I stare at “Place Mats.” Their points of balance between colors, shapes, words, objects, textures are fluid bodies with moveable barycenters. Induced by elemental thrust I am ushered to watch, read, feel, move with total autonomy. Painted waters, bleeding tides, paper sails, typed paddles, reflected seashells, marble clit: all prompt instructions & their contraries with sacred simplicity &/or simple gravity.
“Cut your own cheese,”
“Stay on your lane”
(from conversations between us)
“She heaves a shovel full
he heaves a shovel full
a slow throw at a time”
from All Steel —Hand tools / Wall street —Flim Forum Press
Chez Lori the center mass is always deeply felt —purposely, playfully, thoughtfully, consciously & unconsciously located outside the expected body.
