"Close and Lost" brings together artists Lauren Wilcox (Pittsburgh) and Meg Wolensky (Philadelphia) whose work both explores themes of intimacy and loss.

Wilcox's "Consumptive Passions" series creates a vision of the feminine through the build-up of layered images. By drawing on archived photos of "thinspiration", she explores forces of consumption as applied to the female body - digestion of food and of images of women's bodies. She also meditates on the consumptive nature of intimate relationships when they begin to take over a women's life.

Wolensky has collected her imagery for this series from her personal life, reflecting on a period of high stress and transition. The works in this show describe Wolensky's growing experiences of forming familial relationships with other queer women and reflect on a recent unraveling of a relationship. Working quickly with watercolor and snapshots, Wolensky weaves an intimate personal narrative that is unafraid to deny the audience resolution.
