01/24/13 - One of New York's most passionate and insane art curators, Yoab Vera, is having a show, Ulterior Intersections, from January 25, 2013 to February 15, 2013. Opening reception is Friday January, 25th from 6 to 9pm (by appointment after).

Vera & Melchor de Arcenegui is pleased to present Ulterior Intersections,  a group exhibition featuring artworks by Valentina González-Wohlers, Donna Huanca, Timothy Hutchings, Paul Loughney, Iliana Ortega, Andrés Ramírez Gaviria, Alan Ruiz, and Ramón Vera.

Ulterior Intersections analyzes continuity and extension of space in minimalist aesthetics. In so doing, the show addresses questions such as, where is the boundary between limits? How to transcend those intervals? Each work on view ponders its own physicality, recognizing similarities among contrasts and suggesting connections between opposing poles. Ultimately, Ulterior Intersections explores how human-imposed limitations inform our understanding of a continuous area; boundaries allow us to explore the essence of space itself. 

Alan Ruiz investigates qualities of space among private and public fields by intervening peripheral structures with inverted visual patterns. Paul Loughney's collages consist of re-imagined magazine advertisements. Working primarily from commercial images of interiors, Loughney reassembles and strips these culled ads of all decorative and recognizable forms. The end results are newly imagined spaces, defined by void figures and mysterious new narratives. Iliana Ortega unravels riddles of light over an obscure path by investigating the transversality of materials at play. Ortega considers the surface as a possible source of illumination. Ramírez Gaviria questions semantic limits of structures within spatial and temporal realms. Through a confrontation of stillness with motion, a static quadrilateral transforms into an imploded prism. Ramón Vera depicts dimensions beyond perception. He epitomizes spatial awareness as he warps extra-dimensional universes in a 2-dimensional sheet. By bisecting contact structures with tangent planes, he suggests a neighboring field within contemporary aesthetics and topological precepts.  Moreover, Timothy Hutchings provokes a subtle translation of bodies within a contingent stance. He intersects optics with parallel planes, suggesting continuity as a mental construction. González-Wohlers envisions extended phases of space through materiality, manifesting overtly as a symptom of an empty living space. Huanca juxtaposes subject with object, pondering upon functionality while reconfiguring shapes.

11/08/12 - A friend of mine told me that I had to check out Aaron Kizer and his Abe Lincoln painting that he created in under 6 minutes. I was impressed, mostly because I can barely draw a smily face. Thus, I told him I would do a post about it. Click here to watch a video of him painting it.
