This event has ended.

Martos Gallery presents an exhibition of new works by New York based artists Colin Snapp and Daniel Turner.

Continuing his ongoing analysis of pastoral and civic divisions, Colin Snapp will exhibit a new series of enlarged video stills depicting interior and exterior landscapes. Several of these images illuminate conditions that have severe impact on flora and fauna physiology as well as human health. Contrasting images were shot on location in the Hoh rain forest, the focal point at what audio ecologist believe to be the quietest place on earth.

Daniel Turner will exhibit two site-specific sculptures composed of iron oxide stains upon the gallery floor. Widespread in nature, iron oxide (commonly known as rust) plays a critical role in many natural processes. Due to its inherent properties, this material is utilized in ores, pigments, catalysts and thermite, yet is simultaneously responsible for the collapse of significant structures throughout history. Central to Turner’s practice, the works on view are imbued with temporal lineage.

Snapp and Turner have been collaborating under the name Jules Marquis for over a decade. This marks the first time the artists have exhibited together with their independent works present.
