About Russell Tyler:

\n

Born 1981 in Summertown\, Tennessee. Lives and works in Brookly n\, New York.  \;Tyler received his MFA \;from Pratt Institute in B rooklyn and BFA from Concordia University in Montreal.  \;

T yler&rsquo\;s practice consists of \;two complementary qualities: the g estural and the hard edge\, or geometric. The geometric \;paintings are redolent of both the history of abstract painting as well as the contempor ary image space of the computer screen. While sensuous and tactile\, with e xpressively applied oil paint and rich impasto\, the work is also highly st ructured and unfolds with deliberate shifts in color schemes and forms. The work invites a playful dialogue with several dueling movements from the hi story of abstraction\, including Minimalism\, Concrete Art\, and Expression ism. While Tyler&rsquo\;s work shows the strong influence of artists from t hese movements such as Josef Albers\, the work is also distinctly of its ti me\, related to digital technologies both outmoded and new. The unfolding b locks of color refer to the computer&rsquo\;s organization of virtual dimen sional space on a flat surface. \;

Tyler has had solo exhibi tions at Denny Gallery in New York\, B15 Gallery in Copenhagen and EbersMoo re Gallery in Chicago.  \;He has received press coverage in \;A rtforum\, \;The New York Times\, \;NY Arts Magazi ne\, and \;La Monde.

About Matt Mignanelli:  \;

\n

Born in 1983 in Providence\, Rhode Island.  \;Lives and works in New York City. \;Mignanelli received his BFA from Rhode Island School of D esign\, Rhode Island\, in 2005 and was an Artist in Residence at Vermont St udio Center\, Johnson\, Vermont\, in 2001.

This exhibition will present six new paintings and marks a return to color after more than four years of working strictly monochromatically.

In these new works\ , Mignanelli&rsquo\;s approach to painting has evolved from subtle monochro mes to a stark black / white\, deep blue / white\, and deep blue / black pa lette. While continuing to explore relationships between structure and natu re\, which are relayed through the use of harsh light and shadow against ar chitectural elements\, Mignanelli has been reexamining the evolving interac tions amongst light and surface in these works.

The hard edge is applied over gestural strokes and drips of the background. Mignanelli allo ws for the hand to come through again on his surface through the use of han d-painted shapes and the \;imperfections the human hand creates \;a mongst them. Chance enters into these \;paintings through the mode of e xecution\; the works are all painted flat on a table. As Mignanelli moves a round the work\, painting in sections\, \;the viscous enamel splashes a nd drips into the negative spaces. This spontaneity that emerges makes the paintings feel alive\, and have allowed the works to become much more about painting itself.

The subtle variation of shapes in each paintin g creates areas of &ldquo\;disruption&rdquo\; within these environments. Th e visual breaks within the repetition of shape create a movement that force s the eye to dance.

The return to color in Mignanelli&rsquo\;s w orks has been marked by another significant change in his life\, the birth of his daughter this past summer. The many sleepless nights that followed c hanged his work. The midnight blues of the night sky\, and the early mornin g light inspired the deep blue palette for these new works. There is a cert ain serenity in the palette\, representing those peaceful moments when the world is still asleep.

Mignanelli has had recent solo exhibition s at \;Grattan Street\, LUCE Gallery in \;Torino\, Italy\, and  \;Marianne Friis Gallery in \;Copenhagen\, Denmark.

About Brian Rochefort:

\n

Born and raised in Rhode Island. Lives and works in Los Angeles \, California. Rochefort \;received his BFA in Ceramics at the Rhode Is land School of Design in 2007.  \;

Rochefort is a mixed medi a sculptor working in ceramics\, glaze (on vessels) and automotive paint (o n sculpture).  \;He was awarded the Lillian Fellowship from the Archie Bray Foundation for the Ceramic Arts in Helena\, Montana 2007-2008.
Rochefort's vessels\, ceramic &ldquo\;paintings&rdquo\; and sculptures flaunt the anxious and risky mindset of disorder and chaos in the face of t he viewer\, reminding us that the \;Horror Vacui exists. His works are homages to both AbEx and contemporary \;painting\, he builds layers slo wly and uses multiple firings in his quest for texture.

The sedu ctive messes and goo that spread out in our lives\, regardless of our \ ;attempts to contain them\, are the insistent presence at the forefront of the work. Freezing untidy\, mucky moments\, the works scream at us to pay a ttention to their nauseous ornament\, throwing up our most \;base fun-h ouse selves\, celebrating the pleasure\, beauty and horror of the \;ent irety of what is worldly and human.

Rochefort has had recent exh ibitions at \;Sorry We're Closed\, Brussels\, Retrospective Gallery\, H udson\, New York\, and Vault Exhibition\, American Museum of Ceramic Art\, AMOCA\, Pomona\, California.
