Opening Reception: Friday, June 13th, 2008

 

Poets of the Paste unites four figurative artists known for their striking images that comment on nature, contemporary society and the everyday lives we live. These artists transform public spaces to moments of private reflection with an emphasis on careful craftsmanship. ELBOW-TOE, Armsrock, Gaia, and Imminent Disaster have left their marks on the urban landscapes, generously giving their talent to the public, to time and to the elements. Now they bring their skills together at Ad Hoc Art; through drawings, stencils, paintings and block prints incorporated onto various media.

Chalice Begonia (In Progress)

2.5 x 4 feet

 

I am going to start posting process images for my upcoming show with Armsrock at Thinkspace Gallery in December. The show is titled Mostly Memory.

 

My current body of work is an allegory about memory's power to hold us back or move us forward. The central character in this parable is a 6 x 10 foot linocut of an Everyman, who has lost it all and wanders the plains with all his belongings strapped to his back. He navigates a world in crisis by learning from his past. The remainder of the characters that he encounters are individuals lost in regret.

 

I have developed these paintings and prints during the American housing and credit crisis of the past year. In contemplating where we are and where we might be, I have found myself looking back at history, remembering the Great Depression, and considering what effects it had on the American psyche. The uncertainty that existed then is present now, and I am addressing the kind of escapism through nostalgia that can occur in the midst of calamity. Every character that the Everyman sees is gripped by this need to escape their present circumstance. They are people lost in a memory at the very point when they should be paying attention to what lies ahead.

 

Many different artists have inspired the flavor of this world including the photography of Walker Evans, the films of the Cohen brothers, the music of Tom Waits and the theatre of Robert Wilson.

TOTE / BAG

April 12th - May 3rd

 

www.openspacebeacon.com/index2.html

 

The average family brings home 1,000 plastic bags every year. It is time for us to switch from a disposable society to one which reduces, reuses and recycles. This show will help spread the message that we care about our planet and do not want to just consume until there is nothing left. We are certain that we will all make a difference. The proceeds from the sales of the show will go to the Hudson River Sloop Clearwater, a New York based organization committed to enviromental advocacy and education.
