About

Paula Cooper Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of recent sculpture by Justin Matherly, entitled A recrudescence. Ranging from three and a half to seven feet in height, Matherly’s sculptures take inspiration from works of classical antiquity that portray Asclepius, the ancient god of medicine, his son, Telesphoros, the symbol of recovery, and his daughter, Hygeia, the goddess of health.  For Matherly, the figures of Asclepius, Telesphoros and Hygeia symbolize the movement from depression to affirmation, from injury to recovery, from stasis to healthful activity and interminably back to stasis. Their fragile corporeality prompts a meditation on existence and perseverance.
