New to the East Hampton Gallery scene is Halsey McKay, a lovely space that has presented an excellent exhibition program in the last 6 months. Last month, the gallery had Glen Baldridge and Bryan Graf come in and do their thing.The two promising emerging artists displayed a selection of prints, photographs, and installation work. Images after the jump!
Interdisciplinary artist Pamela Saturday has a body of work that toys with layering both in painting and installation. Her game of hide and reveal creates a fantastic energy. From her statement she says “any truth is partial, and that the actual includes potential” which I think perfectly describes her work.
Matt Irie is an extremely promising and unfairly slept-on artist from Chicago. In the past five years, I’ve seen Irie produce thoughtful and rewarding works in every medium imaginable and the pace isn’t slowing one bit. After the jump you’ll find a glimpse into Irie’s body of work and some information provided by the man himself.
Dane Lovett mixes retro and modern electronics with the tried and true classic, floral still life, to create a completely modern take on the idea of “still life”. His work looks into modern relationships with technology and pulls at the strings of technology of days past. Each piece is serene and intriguing, feeling both familiar and new all at once.
Dan Gluibizzi’s work combines voyeurism with soft wash watercolor, creating pieces that feel like you’re looking in on strangers lives from a distance. He uses images from the internet, sometimes amateur porn photos but recreates his pieces in a completely refreshing manner. Viewing his work is nothing like viewing the photos they came from, he adds a sense of curiosity and innocence in his figures that comes through beautifully in his medium.
Recently stumbled across the work of Patrick Brennan by way of his most recent solo show @ HalseyMcKay. He provides a really fresh take on painting. Lots of interesting material decisions, color usage, and compositional arrangements. I dig it…more after the jump.
