Carol Peligian Sosomuch… at DEAN PROJECT Gallery NYC Opening Reception: Thursday January 6th 2011
January 6 – February 12, 2011
DEAN PROJECT gallery is thrilled to announce “Sosomuch”, a solo exhibition of new paintings and sculptures by Carol Peligian. The exhibition continues Peligian’s alchemical seduction of material possibility: aluminum, oil, enamel, latex are equally employed to generate an altered state existing somewhere between atmosphere and stratosphere.
These works alternately confront and quietly elicit questions related to the idea of infinity and existence. The work’s delicate construction and implacable physicality provide the viewers with a space where the surrounding and the self become one in spirit. The understanding of material/form is evident in each of the works. Moreover, the integrity with which Peligian has approached her subjects, results in a paradoxical visual experience of reality/reassurance and the mystery of the purity of time/space. The juxtaposition of the organic and manufactured as they trade boundaries, make more permeable the borders between the work and the viewer.
The latest exhibition at Mariane Ibrahim Gallery in Chicago touches on the exploration of not only experience but also Blackness. For the Mexico-City based artist, Clotilde Jiménez, his series of collages serve as a way to unwrap his personal narrative.
There are very few artists that could claim to be truly original and even fewer that could prove it, but no truer a word could be said than when referring to Rammellzee.
Paris Photo takes the photo book very seriously. All the top photographers are there, signing their latest. I returned with ‘42nd and Vanderbilt’ by Peter Funch (TBW Books 2017).
In addition to Warhol’s highly anticipated retrospective at New York’s Whitney Museum of American Art, the Dia Art Foundation is planning an ambitious reunion of Warhol’s monumental Shadows. Up to 50 of the series’ brightly coloured canvases, will take over the Calvin Klein headquarters in Manhattan this October.
