AROUND TOWN: Roxanne Jackson – Death Valley

Roxanne Jackson – Death Valley

October 11, 2013 – November 16, 2013
Opening Reception: October 11, 2013 from 7:00pm to 10:00pm

“AIRPLANE is proud to open our 2013 Fall season with a sculptural installation of recent work by sculptor and ceramic artist Roxanne Jackson.

Jackson makes objects, talismans, mutated creatures; each one rooted in and realized by it’s own inherent craft. Her work combines references to popular horror culture with themes of metamorphosis and transmogrification, using such disparate materials as paper-mache’ and refined glazed ceramics to convey a dichotomy, a vibration, between culturally accepted tropes of the beautiful and the beastly, the banal and sublime.

Her process often involves a literal anchoring of her varied subjects to a base, and by addressing the base as a sculptural element, it presents the work with a supporting root , a sub-ethos, a body; for Death Valley, a large multi-layered plinth installed in the gallery will act as a sort of psycho-fungal mycelium tying the tableau of works together collectively into a discordant harmony, presenting a critique of the growth/mythos of our ever-morphing and redundant popular culture.”

“What is an intention? What does it mean to ‘have’ or ‘not have’ one? How are intentions subverted, misinterpreted, appropriated, and invented? To what extent does an artist get to decide what their work is ‘about’ and/or how it operates for a live audience in a live situation? To what extent are intentions ’embedded in’ or visible in artwork?”

“front line” Opening Reception TONIGHT @ Lorimoto

(Below: Text Source)

Opening Reception TONIGHT

“front line”

Saturday, September 28, 2013
from 6:00pm to 9:00pm

at Lorimoto, 1623 Hancock St. Ridgewood , NY 11385

“The wave of gentrification starts quietly and moves constantly, affecting people, landscape and everything else that compose a neighborhood.

Good and bad, it is inevitable and nostalgia lingers with a melancholic after taste for the passing of time.  Artists have always been pioneers and the driving force in exploring new neighborhoods. The Bushwick / Ridgewood border is currently the very front lines of the Artist Migration.

To represent our presence in a rapidly changing neighborhood, Lorimoto has curated a show titled “front line”  featuring 3 artists.

Artists:

Jonathan Auch –Auch captures images on the street. His large monochrome prints are portraits of random people who he found in the Bushwick / Ridgewood neighborhood. His high contrast photos capture every pore and crease of the human face, suggesting a deep and detailed life story of each individual.

Armas Carino – An architect / painter duo has been collaborating and constructing scaled miniature fragments of brick townhouses. The imagery of destruction prevalent in their work reminds that all things, including humans, eventually  crumble.

Yasuyuki  Takagi – Takagi has been documenting the changing scenery of various Brooklyn neighborhoods for over 12 years. His focus was photographing empty lots in the community. These lots do not exist anymore. Most have been transformed into residential dwellings for the ever-inflating population.”
