This week’s artists examine the nature of duality with their work.
* * *
1. In the sensitive, finely balanced, and often transparent application of delicate colors arises the impression of an exciting connection between the constructed and the freem between chance and control, calculation and spontaneity – a dialogue between fizex order and dynamism at 333 Montezuma Arts
2. Paul Fägerskiöld’s work assumes painting as a language and then works within it to develop meaning, to explore form and to provide poetics. For his first solo exhibition in the United States, Paul will articulate two clear faculties of painting, its semiotic voice and its aesthetic voice, via two distinct series at PRISM
3. Julie Cockburn transforms second-hand objects and vintage photographs into meticulously constructed, psychologically charged artworks, by using a mix of embroidery and collage techniques at Yossi Milo Gallery
4. Christopher Astley and Saira McLaren’s work is more than meets the eye at Sargent’s Daughters
5.Constructing entire worlds of colorful, larger than life, composite creatures and hybrids, Nosego and Curiot explore the symbolic possibilities of juxtaposition; working with the known of the every day and transforming it constantly through free association at thinkspace gallery
6. AJ. Fosik explores the idea that humanity faces an inherent struggle between its dualistic nature—a physical self and a symbolic self. Works in the show are greatly inspired by The Denial of Death, a 1973 Pulitzer Prize-winning work of psychology and philosophy by Ernest Becker at Jonathan LeVine Gallery
