BEST OF SHOW:
In Joyce Wilson’s Falling Upward, objective depiction has been replaced by the imagination of a surrealist visionary. Depending on which side of the window the viewer chooses as vantage point he or she becomes either the actor or the voyeuror both. The scene is a dream, and, as dreams go, this is an impossible dreamone cannot fall upward. And the falling woman is not realshe’s a mannikin eternally afloat in a bittersweet void, a relic from the world of Chagall.
