One Strategy For Loving the World
November 15, 2013 to January 11, 2014
Critic Cate McQuaid describes Cole as " a painter with a sharp visual curiosity and a perfectionist’s dedication to technique."
October 11, 2013 to November 12, 2013
Bound together in a visually spectral narrative merging cross-referential complexities à la Borges with metaphorical vividness and chess references à la Nabokov, Tim Kent's new body of oil paintings tell an enigmatic tale of objects and interiors that subtly shimmer with time-tarnished illustriousness; of an heir who is at best indirectly apparent; of a steed that has long since shed its bridling; of a MacGuffin-like heirloom that sparkles and looms; of an anonymous knight whose portrait, pendent in the back dropped midst of the series' keystone work, is the lone human visage throughout so many rooms.
Walking A Porous Border
September 06, 2013 to October 10, 2013
Painting atop large prints of color, black and white or ambered photographs of people in either definitively urban or patently rural settings, Gorzo deploys bold colors and energetically sure, candid brushstrokes to create stratified picture planes in which figures portrayed photographically are partially obscured or reconfigured by abstractly painted interlopers, and in which mixed personal nostalgias—at times geographically immediate, at times temporally distant, at times allowing the personal to give way to the societal—feed into and off of one another’s images in uncompromisingly vivacious, profoundly revivified compositions.
Dionicio Hector Mendoza
July 09, 2013 to August 30, 2013
Bound to arrayed geographical localities as a result of incorporating found objects into the mix, Mendoza’s sculptures tend ultimately toward the geological. Like the readily legible chapters of time and terrestrial torque in metamorphic rock, the visual divisibilities and material morphings in Mendoza’s creations speak to change over time, environmental and technological alike, and to how one’s sense of self, substance and place might evolve and alter therewith.

What Is Left
February 22, 2013 to March 20, 2013
nes of charcoal heaped heavy upon fine woven papers might lend themselves rather readily to dark imagery and gravitas, but it takes the touch of a master to bring medium-breaching rhyme to so much grit and grime.
