In a new show at 111 Minna Gallery, the works of Michael Reedy and Scott Tulay explore concepts under the banner of “Ghosts and Shadows.” The program is a blend of the Michigan-based Reedy’s pieces, blending abstraction and realistic anatomical drawings, and Tulay’s distorted, architectural works.

Scott Tulay is an artist and architect based in Amherst, Mass., crafting ghostly drawings that play with light, shadow, and a distorted version of familiar structures. Tulay’s command of space and design bring an engrossing order to his otherwise otherworldly creations. And whether it’s ink, charcoal, pastel, graphite, or a combination of all, his drawings offer vibrant arrangements that loom like vivid apparitions.

The ghostly skeletons of long limbed homes exist withinplumes of smoke and colored fog in artist Scott Tulay’s ink and pastel drawings.The architectural based compositions examine the ambiguity of space and howlight, or the lack there of, can define a place in time. These spatialrelationships between light and color are juxtaposed by the sharp textures ofthe man-made elements, creating a distinct yet subtle, narrative tension. Whileimbued with a sense of quiet, the works also invoke a delicate terror, as someof the ‘homes’ appear splintered and ruined, presenting a foreboding vision ofplaces once lived in and now abandoned.
