CURRENT EXHIBITION

VICTORIA RIDGWAY & KELLY WEBECK: BROADCAST
October 5 – 28, 2018

 

Broadcast is a collaborative body of work exploring the idea of mechanical surveillance. The work illustrates what portraiture would look like if made by a machine.

As consumer culture progresses, the demand for cheap and quick photography continues to evolve. Cameras can be found everywhere, even in mobile phones and laptops. The accessibility to create an image is constant.

What if these camera eyes were looking back ?

To quote Friedrich Nietzsche, “….When you stare long into the abyss, The abyss gazes also into you.”

UPCOMING EXHIBITIONS

JOHN VOSEL – MINING STRATA: INTERVENTIONS ON WASTE

NOVEMBER 3–30, 2018

Mining Strata: Interventions on Waste reevaluates resources deemed “waste” and invites the materials back in to a meticulous, loving atmosphere. The artist is interested in assigning new purpose and life to the curated elements, providing them a unique trajectory. The sculptures represent a manifestation of material as a coping mechanism for the artist’s physical existence, a practice in which he can meander in the delicate balance of beauty and ugliness. In a time of resource inefficiency and mass production, Vosel’s art is a meditative means of communication used to navigate his environment of perpetual waste.

Influenced by artists such as Tom Sachs and Daniel Arsham, the work consists of common items related to industrial mass production. The artist reassigns objects resulting from surplus, inability to recycle, or material destined to a landfill—rejected to potentially gather dust or disintegrate over time. “I digest and repurpose objects in my own fantasy world, assembling and transforming the abandoned in simple, yet energetic forms. Color, shape and surface heavily dominate how I react to material, playing a significant role in my designs. Melting, cutting, bolting—I dissect machinery into its rudimentary parts. I geometrically organize the items in to comprehensible and attractive shapes.
