In her exhibition Pieces of Me Pieces of You Dominique Rey fashions two-dimensional collage compositions from photographic sources that blend different spaces and times into new, near-coherent formats that are rich with spatial and bodily suggestion. Things are almost recognizable, almost happening, almost resolving—as if they were the graphic equivalent of phrases on the tip of the tongue. That eventually they do resolve—as sculptures, no less—is a materialization of ambiguity as a perpetual solid state. This is the irreality reality that we know and recognize as our current interface with the world. In Rey’s work it is unreliable and unsteady but it is also honest, and most especially, alluring. There is a future in fragmentation.
