Stephen Paul Day

The Queen of Mirth represents the mother of all things creative, bearing an interdisciplinary exhibition based on the new romantic notion that art should be entertaining and challenging, and that which is amusing has as much potential to effect change as that which is political. From the viewpoint of two young children - a twin boy and girl - the gallery transforms into a kind of ‘Alice in Wonderland’ surrealism. Read More

Stephanie Patton

Themes of mental and physical health, healing, comfort, and self-preservation are maintained in Sensitivity Training, which includes medium- to large-scale sculptural text constructions, padded vinyl wall pieces, and video. Stephanie Patton continues to employ humor as a device to solicit attention to critical issues. Her works explore various emotional states and address the desire to develop an understanding of oneself and one’s relationship to others. Read More

Ralph Bourque

Ralph Bourque’s meticulous landscape chronicles represent the passing of a day – loosely referencing dawn, noon, dusk and midnight, which the artist likens to the cycle of artistic creation. The medium of black ink on white paper allows Bourque to explore the interplay of darkness and light, and he often adjusts the value of the foreground, middle ground, and background of his works resulting in the interchangeability of positive and negative spaces, and thus, unexpected visual outcomes.

Brian Guidry

Reoccurring themes of technology and the manipulation of nature can be found in Brian Guidry’s paintings, which range visually from compressed lines of color to abstract eruptions. The artist synthesizes color, sound and texture to create “digitized” or “dissolved landscapes,” using a specific color palette sampled from a variety of natural sources. The injection of these "natural" colors into geometric planes and constructions creates shapes and voids suggestive of portals or slips in time, leading the viewer over the precipice of the normal, into the magical realism of the uncanny, peculiar and quantum.

John Scott

John T. Scott: His Legacy features work spanning the artist’s career, with many from his most prolific period between 1992 and 2004. This is the artist’s seventh solo exhibition with the gallery, in anticipation and celebration of his inclusion in Prospect.4 (opening November 18, 2017). Read More

Christopher Saucedo

In the realm of confections, Neapolitan signifies three side-by-side flavors of ice cream in the same container. This exhibition, Christopher Saucedo’s first with the gallery, is also a rich tripartite of distinct bodies of work: Comic Book Diplomacy, Go Cups and Water Bottle Buoys. The artwork, made concurrently, is unified by the artist’s preoccupation with water or fire as the imagery and technical processes reveal. Handmade paper, chain-stitched embroidery, delicately balanced mobiles and carved polystyrene are all in play as they activate the popular imagery of comic books and drinking containers with global maps both real and imagined.

Luis Cruz Azaceta

ON THE BRINK is Luis Cruz Azaceta’s ninth exhibition with the gallery. The recent works on canvas, which range from kaleidoscopic to austere, present an enigmatic state of affairs, a series of journeys on the edge of order and chaos. Themes of disbalance, dystopia, conflict and passage are boldly rendered in the artist’s distinctive, abstractive style. The paintings reveal Azaceta’s staunch dedication to addressing contemporary issues with his work. Read More
