Lindsay Pichaske’s art resides between states of being: familiar and foreign, human and nonhuman, alive and dead. She uses human hair—itself somewhere between alive and dead—as material for works like an abstract animal skeleton and a web that, when it goes on view at Flashpoint Jan. 17, will consume the gallery’s main space. Pichaske also uses hair as thread to create animal images. The boundaries between what is beautiful and what is grotesque are always fluid, and Pichaske’s work sits somewhere in the middle. The exhibit is on view Wednesdays through Saturdays from noon to 6 p.m. to Feb. 15 at Flashpoint Gallery, 916 G St. NW. Free. (202) 315-1305. culturaldc.org.
