Inman Gallery, 2011
May 8 – June 19, 2010
For Anatomies, Waterston presented a multi-media installation evoking the empiricism and fantasy of 16th and 17th century wunderkammern. Waterston’s gallery-scale cabinet of curiosity accumulated and arranged found, collected, and artist-constructed objects: biological specimens and book pages, anatomies and artifacts, totems and talismans, as well as a bounty of new, related paintings, works on paper, and the presented the artist’s first foray into sculpture. Together these oddities comprised an idiosyncratic catalogue of organic and man-made forms; representation and abstraction; and material and spirit – all filtered through Waterston’s unique artistic sensibility.
