This event has ended.

Miguel Abreu Gallerypresents Sequence 7: one work, one week, an exhibition wherein over the course of several weeks a single artwork will be on view at our 36 Orchard Street space for the duration of one week. This sequencing of objects by various artists articulated over time constitutes a break from the traditional group show in which works are installed in relation to one another in space rather than time.

This iteration of the exhibition will begin with a Superstar painting by Scott Lyall. The following artist and her or his work will be announced via Instagram on the day preceding its unveiling.

Week 1: Ink-printed onto large canvasses, Lyall’s Superstars are made by layering photographed flashes of color, the result of the viewer’s retinal encounter with the silver surface of his Nanofoil (SLStudio.clone) engravings. The performances of light in each individual Nanofoil are impossible to capture, resulting in a blur of colored patches and flares. These accidents are gathered and preserved as fragmentary information patterns. Then, by assembling them in printed layers, Lyall transfers them to another format in his work – the painting-object functioning as a screen or mask. Painting thus registers a final transformation. What was once sub-visual has been passed onto canvases as mists and clouds. This total movement from latent appearance to atmospheric visual effect is the dialectical passage of what the artist calls Superstar.
