MAX DE ESTEBAN: NEW WORK

We are pleased to announce the release of Binary Code by Max de Esteban.

As with his earlier bodies of work, the artist dispenses with the linear perspective inherent in Western art, as a key device in his examination of how technology is a determining factor in artistic expression, in human relationships, and in our mediation of the world. 

"Binary Code, attempts to give visual expression to a world where databases and algorithms determine the ultimate reality, including nature. This is essentially the end of the order of nature as we know it".—Max de Esteban.

HELEN SEAR: NEW WORK RELEASED

We are pleased to announce the release of two new series of photographs by British artist, Helen Sear.

With the View Finder series, Helen Sear presents a group of 12 photographs of hay bales. These photographs continue ideas, explored by the artist in previous work, where formalism meets the unruly in the managed rural landscape. The hay bales themselves are consistent, central objects. They block the viewer's ability to see the rural vista, but this perception of the landscape is further disrupted by Sear’s slight of hand, or intervention, in the making of the artworks. As with Monet's Haystacks, these photographs are all about the shadows, or absence thereof. The photographs are exquisitely rendered as silver gelatin prints.

The Becoming Forest series is an extraordinary body of work that explores the experience of moving through a marked forest landscape, and the altered/heightened perception of surfaces, forms and space.

As with her earlier work, Sear's gesture of the hand is visible, where she has traced the lines of new forest growth, using a digital pen and tablet. The chaos and entanglement of these hand drawn lines that follow the actual forest growth, contrasts with the geometric neon pigment marks spray-painted by the foresters. The artist draws comparison to the lines of the skin of the hand, or the veins of the interior human body.

GALLERY NEWS: REVIEW IN AMERICAN PHOTO

AMERICAN PHOTO reviews the gallery's current exhibtion, CUT/PASTE, which is on view through February 18, 2017.

"Stripped down, collage is essentially the act of cutting and pasting images together. But add tools—a camera, Photoshop and an eye for composition, color and graphics—and you have a vehicle for abstracting memory or forging a unified vision in a fractured society.

In Cut/Paste, at Brooklyn's Klompching Gallery, viewers are asked to get lost in the fantasy of photo collage art through the work of eight artists whose wide range of approaches to the medium are on display".
