"Spaced Out / On Time" Exhibition


poster for "Spaced Out / On Time" Exhibition

This event has ended.

Be mine! Get physical. Get spaced out. Dismantled this place. Lost in thought and color, and stain, and mess, in construction, in color, in time, ON TIME. Lets get lost! These artist are not afraid to go way over there. Their art is the tether that allows for the trip. The artist can to lose it, to forget it, get beyond and through and away and follow objects back down to the ground, like a bread crumb trail. The art is the evidence, the result and the fact of these explorations. No matter how far they go, these things are back here on time. We are lucky to have them all together, now in one place.

These artists make us bigger and braver people. Some of this work we know intimately. As students and colleagues of Dona Nelson, we have been intimately influenced (startled, intrigued, entranced) by her painting for over a decade. For ten years we have commuted past Otis Houston's studio and stage under the Triborough Bridge. His daily practice teaches us what art is suppose to be. FIve years ago, Agathe brought potatoes in a spare tire nest to CANADA. To this day she continues to make free sculpture for the next Pepsi generation. Come meet me in the belly of your Whale! Ms. Lily Ludlow introduced us to Sadie Laska who is a drummer and a painter. Her intensely physical paintings in sand and goo are made with brush, stick and sponge. They are from the streets: tar and gum. Cave with the lights off, drip drop. Katherine Bernhardt (who introduced us to Chris Martin) can't be stopped still. Her strong and vulnerable paintings keep the faith (an now keep the time too). Make it! Make it YEs YEs! Joe Bradley asked us to look at the paintings of Joan Brown: where pattern meets painting and spirit is clearly in gear. We haven't been the same since. Her insistence is on her own way, which reminds us of Chris Martin who paints whatever he likes better than most. His works are funk driven and lost and full of painting explored. Close your eyes and let's go, keep digging, deep earth mining. Dig deeper, fry higher. Be Brave!
