Sikkema Jenkins & Co. is pleased to announce the group exhibition "A Word Like Tomorrow Wears Things Out" featuring work by Kelly Barrie, Glen Fogel, Mariah Robertson, and David Benjamin Sherry.
Kelly Barrie will present works from his series entitled “Between the Blinds”. Using photo luminescent pigments manipulated with his feet, Barrie creates a large scale drawings based on found images of subjects that no longer exist in there original place or form. The drawings are then photographed in sections over the period of a number of days and weeks, resulting in over 100 images which are stitched back together with the use of a computer. Each photograph retains a slight color cast which is dependent on the time of day it was taken and the angle or incidence of light. These color shifts, seen in the final piece, represent a temporal register for the duration of the work.
Glen Fogel will be exhibiting two recently completed works, a video installation titled Art from Kansas City, and a sound and light piece titled Glen from Colorado. Conceived of as companion pieces, the two works function as distinct yet related portraits of the artist: one is mapped onto a pre-existing politically charged memoir, and the other from the artist’s personal archive. Both works conflate minimal forms with emotionally, psychologically and politically charged material, and explore the complexities of identity-formation.
Mariah Robertson’s unique photographs are the result of a variety of darkroom techniques and the chance incidences that happen during their processing. The resulting images are a chaotic mix of representation and abstraction.
David Benjamin Sherry will present variously colored monochromatic photographs displayed in an installation format. The works spans most fields of photographic work: landscapes, still lives, portraits, abstractions, camera-less photographs and self-portraits. Sherry’s practice is based in traditional color photography using pre-digital darkroom techniques to create “a world based from my own experiences and transforming [the photographs] into a more fantastical, magical, new and exciting visual atmosphere that transcends reality and challenges thoughts on existence, spirituality and my intimate relationship with nature.”(read less)
