Lesley Heller presents a special one-week exhibition in honor of the inaugural Lower East Side Art Week. Drew Shiflett: Sculptural Works 1984-2006 is a solo show presenting the early works of sculptor Drew Shiflett. The visual interest embedded in Shiflett’s work is derived from her intense focus on process– she has developed a unique way of building up her sculptures, layering materials as diverse as plaster, styrofoam, and handmade paper to create architecturally complex structures.

Whispers of Shiflett’s current practice can be seen in these early works, enriching the viewer’s understanding of the sculptor’s contemporary practice, as attention paid to the properties of material is a hallmark of both.
