This event has ended.

Amos Eno Gallery presents an exhibition of recent works by Stephen March. This, his first solo exhibition presented by Amos Eno Gallery, features paintings from his recent Surveillance series, an extension of his Almost Forgotten News works. Also included are a number of individual works connected to other continuing series in his oeuvre.

Spanning more than four decades, March’s work is known for addressing contemporary political, social, and spiritual issues and events, especially in the context of crisis. March has been, and continues to be, interested in creating visual art that can transcend the physicality of the material surface and be a vehicle for emotional and intellectual contemplation, as well as a metaphor for the fragility of human existence during his lifetime.

The Surveillance series of paintings are “appropriations” of the pixilated surface of a television monitor, which has recorded fleeting images directly or indirectly related to criminal activity that has temporarily made national headline news. The paintings consist of multiple layers of translucent paint applied with either a brush or drywall knives and emphasizes the ambiguity and sense of mystery inherent in the source images, now clouded by memory; like a garbled or muffled announcement heard over a public address system. As with the cases connected to the appropriated images, much information remains unknown or unresolved in these paintings.
