303 Gallery is pleased to present its fifth exhibition of ph otographs by Stephen Shore\, whose pioneering use of color photography in t he 1970s and beyond has made him one of art history's most revered and expl oratory practitioners of photographic possibilities.

\n

For this occas ion\, Shore will present two new bodies of work realized in zones of itiner ant conflict. In a series of images made in Israel and the West Bank\, unin habited landscapes meet scenes of modern quotidian life\, and tender portra its become entangled with images of aestheticized propaganda and the charge of architecture in conflicted space. Shore's interest in daily life\, in t he landscape itself as a way to interpret a sociological climate - a baseli ne theme in all his work - here takes on a different type of potency due to the critical nature of the living situation. In an a piece such as \;< em>Sderot\, Israel\, September 14\, 2009\, a photograph of a hand poin ting at a map is another way of considering the contentious nature of terri tories.

\n

The second body of work presented in this exhibition consis ts of images shot in the Ukraine\, in and around the homes and villages of Holocaust survivors. Another subject with an emotional charge perhaps unequ alled in terms of acute sensation\, each image becomes a type of reliquary replete not only with the tragedy of the Holocaust\, but with the tragic hi story of the Ukraine itself. Shore's compositions in these images are tight er and more controlled\; colors and objects bristle with intimation of past events. In directly confronting these charged subjects\, Shore subtly impo ses his own order and logic on the landscape\, continuing a tradition he cr eated and has practiced for close to 50 years.

\n

Stephen Shore: F rom Galilee to the Negev\, a compendium of images shot in Israel and t he West Bank\, was published earlier this year by Phaidon Press. His most r ecent photographic series shot in Winslow\, AZ in 2013 was recently publish ed by IMA Concept Store in Tokyo in a new book titled \;Stephen Sho re Winslow Arizona.

\n

Stephen Shore's upcoming exhibitions will include Fundació\;n MAPFRE\, Madrid (2014)\, Barbican Centre\, London (2014)\, Tate Modern (2014). Past exhibitions include The Museum of Modern Art\, New York (2013-14)\, The Metropolitan Museum of Art\, New York (2013 )\, The Art Institute of Chicago (2011)\, Centre Pompidou\, Paris (2011)\, Aspen Art Museum\, Aspen (2011).

JACK LEVINE an d HYMAN BLOOM: \;AGAINST THE GRAIN

\n

Sep tember 18 through October 25\, 2014

\n

ACA Galleries is pleas ed to announce the upcoming exhibition Jack Levine and Hyman Bl oom: AGAINST THE GRAINon view September 18 through October 25 \, 2014. The exhibition will feature a survey of paintings and works on pap er from the 1930s to 1990s from both the artists&rsquo\; estates and privat e collections.

\n

Jack Levine (1915-2010) and Hyman Bloom (1913-2009) were close friends who each became a master of a new American realism that blended abstraction and realism.  \;As Jewish immigrants \;from Eas tern Europe\, of a similar age and background \;they arrived at their s ocially conscious art through shared \;experiences but through differen t routes of development.

\n

The Great Depression brought the aesthetic controversy of abstraction versus realism into an uneasy resolution. \ ; American Social Realists\, many of whom had been modernist painters\, bel ieved that the hardships of unemployment\, hunger and homelessness were too profound to be depicted through obscure abstractions. \; For such arti sts\, a return to realism was the only honest means to portray the struggle s of the citizenry.

\n

But &ldquo\;realism&rdquo\; did not mean &ldquo \;traditional&rdquo\;.  \;The genie of modernism could not be put back into the bottle. Instead\, these socially conscious artists created a new r ealist language\; an edgy aesthetic that brought realism and modernist abst ract elements into a restless but electrifying visual alliance.

\n

&nb sp\;Jack Levine\, though deeply influenced by the grandeur of Titian and Ve lazquez\, also admired the harsh drama of the German Expressionists.  \ ;In the 1930s\, Levine united these influences into grand but scathing port rayals of America&rsquo\;s corrupt political and economic power brokers.

\n

Though the Social Realism Levine practiced in the &rsquo\;30s remaine d the foundation of his oeuvre throughout his career\, he expanded his visi on into more spiritual realms.  \;In these late works\, Levine returns to his Jewish roots\, using biblical themes as the basis for his  \;pen etrating observations of the human condition.

\n

Hyman Bloom&rsquo\;s work evolved into socially aware realism. Originally influenced by America& rsquo\;s early twentieth century avant-garde\, Bloom became one of New York &rsquo\;s mid-century abstract painters and was even credited by Jackson Po llock and Willem deKooning as the first genuine Abstract Expressionist. &nb sp\;His work moved away from pure abstraction into a mystical realism.  \;

\n

Unlike his former Abstract Expressionist compatriots who were se eking the secrets of the subconscious\, Bloom\, through the strength of agg ressive line and color\, was after &ldquo\;the nature of being\,&rdquo\; th e mystical essence of life.  \;It was through his spirituality that Blo om found his kinship with humanity and its struggles. \;

\n

ACA Galleries is the exclus ive agent for the estates of Hyman Bloom and Jack Levine.

Alexander Gray Associates presents its first exhibition of w ork by Siah Armajani\, featuring large sculptures\, models\, and drawings f rom the &ldquo\;Tomb Series&rdquo\; (1972&ndash\;2014). The Series pays tri bute to twenty-five philosophers\, activists\, poets\, and critical writers who have been foundational voices to Armajani&rsquo\;s art and ideology\, among them Theodor Adorno\, Walter Benjamin\, Dietrich Bonhoeffer\, John De wey\, Ralph Waldo Emerson\, and Walt Whitman. \;The Series embodies the humanist\, democratic\, and populist ideals that have defined Armajani&rsq uo\;s multi-faceted vision for over forty years\, culminating with the crea tion of his own tomb.

As a student in Tehran\, and later a gradu ate of philosophy from Macalester College\, Armajani was drawn to Western p hilosophers\, writers and Persian poetry. Throughout his career\, Armajani has built public sculptures dedicated to cultural figures\, at times embedd ing quotes of writers and poets into his work. \;With the &ldquo\;Tomb Series\,&rdquo\; as the artist explains\, &ldquo\;there is no semiology\, n o quotations\, no study of history nor biography.&rdquo\; The series of scu lptures\, drawings\, and models represents a self-reflexive moment in Armaj ani&rsquo\;s practice. Paradoxically\, the tombs invite\, yet inhibit the v iewer from entering each sculpture. Contrary to previous series that emphas ized public and communal activities\, the &ldquo\;Tomb Series&rdquo\; holds a more introspective nature while maintaining Armajani&rsquo\;s desire to distance his biography from the meaning behind his work.

Large-s cale sculptures\, such as Tomb for Neema (2012)\, references Nima Yushij th e Iranian poet\, considered to be the predecessor of modern Persian poetry\ ; \;Tomb for John Berryman \;(1972&ndash\;2012)\, American poet\; and \;Tomb for Walt Whitman \;(2014)\, American po et and writer\, incorporate elements of vernacular American architecture. T he design of each tomb is symbolic recognition of the influence each figure had on the artist. In \;Tomb for Walt Whitman\, Armajani pays homage to Whitman\, while in \;Tomb for Neema\, he honors Yus hij&rsquo\;s radical poetic form that combines free verse and Farsi vernacu lar with standardized Farsi\, creating poetry in a new way. \;In \; Tomb for Sacco Vanzetti \;(2009)\, Armajani pays tribute to Sa cco and Vanzetti&rsquo\;s writings and activities as two innocent anarchist s who were executed.

Along with large sculptures\, the exhibitio n showcases Armajani&rsquo\;s drawings and models of the tombs\, integral t o the artist&rsquo\;s process\, and in some cases serving as the tombs&rsqu o\; final conceptualized forms. One such drawing is \;Tomb for Hafe z \;(2014)\, a Persian poet whose verses Armajani memorized as par t of his early education in Iran. Armajani&rsquo\;s most recent tomb\, his own Written Minneapolis (The Last Tomb) (2014)\, an 18-foot drawing depicts the surrounding neighborhood where his studio is located in Minneapolis.

American Contemporary is thrilled to announce a two-part ins tallation by renowned sound artist Stephen Vitiello.The exhibition will pai r together a major early work\, Frogs in Feedback (2002)\, and a new sculpt ural sound installation Gain and Lift (2014).
Frogs in Feedback is a k inetic sound sculpture involving a suspended\,working microphone circling a speaker mounted on the floor. The resulting interaction produces a melanch olic and morphing poem of feedback tempered by an analog ring modulator. Vi sually\, the piece references Steve Reich&rsquo\;s iconic composition Pendu lumMusic. Where Reich's piece involves multiple speakers and microphones\, and is intended for performance\, Vitiello's work is more localized and org anic. Despite the fact no frogs were used in this piece and it often disapp ears into complete abstraction\, the sculpture has a mortal presence in the space.
The second work revisits Vitiello's suspended speaker works\, which process low frequencies of sound to create three-dimensional scores. The freed speakers are suspended by wires\, which hold them gently in the a ir allowing them to move. The installation utilizes four channels\, sixteen 6.25" speakers and the flutter of hummingbirds recorded at Mountain Lake B iological Station\, Pembroke in the Appalachian mountains. The playback fea tures only the lowest frequencies\, causing movement to the surfaces of the speakers while remaining below the threshold of human hearing. The score i s created through a process of transformation\, rather than layering the ma terial onto chromatic scale.
The two works function as almost perfect opposites. One creates something wild and organic from seemingly nothing\, and the other condenses the organic to a beautiful\, minimal four-dimension al installation. In Vitiello&rsquo\;s work sound lives a complete existence . It is not about isolated moments\, the honking of a horn\, a piece of mus ic\, but instead a visceralreality in actual space and time. In these works form and sound endure harmoniously and in conflict like two magnets\; four alternate poles attracting and repelling to allow a sonic and physical flo w of change\, resistance and connection.

Ralph Fasanella (1914&ndash\;1997) celebrated the common man and tackled complex issues of postwar America in colorful\, socially minde d paintings. This exhibition celebrates the one hundredth anniversary of th e artist&rsquo\;s birth and brings together key works from a career spannin g fifty-two years. Fasanella was born in the Bronx and grew up in working-c lass neighborhoods of New York\; he became a tireless advocate for laborers &rsquo\; rights\, first as a union organizer and later as a painter.
< br />This major exhibition includes a selection of artworks from the Americ an Folk Art Museum&rsquo\;s collection\, which holds more than one hundred paintings and drawings by the artist. The Estate of Ralph Fasanella gifted many of these objects to the museum over the years\, in addition to the art ist&rsquo\;s notebooks\, sketches\, correspondence\, personal records\, pho tographs\, publications\, and films\, which were donated in 2009 and 2013.< br />

Willem van Genk: Mind Traffic \;is the first mo nographic exhibition of works by the internationally acclaimed Dutch artist Willem van Genk (1927-2005) to be presented in the United States. The exhi bition includes over forty artworks: panoramic paintings\, collages\, drawi ngs\, personal notes\, sculptures of trolleys\, and an installation of rain coats (van Genk collected hundreds of raincoats over the course of his life time). This comprehensive selection provides an overview of the artist&rsqu o\;s oeuvre and insight into his creative processes\, methods\, and themes. Van Genk&rsquo\;s artworks usually depict intricately layered and densely networked urban panoramas and reference interconnectivity. He was a restles s stockpiler of information\, factoids\, and trivia: from this perspective\ , the artworks can be seen as memory palaces&mdash\;visualizations implemen ted to organize and recall information. These imaginary landscapes serve as sophisticated devices and scaffolds to map hidden forces\, since the artis t believed that all things were connected via both visible and invisible ne tworks.

The exhibition is co-organized by Dr. Valé\;rie Ro usseau\, curator\, art of the self-taught and art brut\, American Folk Art Museum\, and Patrick Allegaert and Yoon Hee Lamot\, both curators at Museum Dr. Guislain\, Ghent\, Belgium. All of the works on view are drawn from th e Willem van Genk Foundation\, which retained the largest body of the artis t&rsquo\;s work\, the De Stadshof Collection\, and the Museum Dr. Guislain\ , which manages both of these collections.

Andrea Rosen Galle ry is delighted to present Ten Possible Links\, Matthew Ritchie&rs quo\;s fifth solo-exhibition with the gallery. Weaving together four distin ct projects\, the exhibition embodies a comprehensive visual examination of diagrammatic thinking. Encompassing a wide range of mediums\, Ritchie&rsqu o\;s immersive installation - including painting\, wall drawing\, sculpture \, sound and moving image - demonstrates the complexity and transient natur e of information.

The &lsquo\;Ten Possible Links&rsquo\; are a series of subtly vibrant and densely layered paintings that investigate th e abstract imagery of Ritchie&rsquo\;s sculpture and cinematic landscapes t hrough multiple diagrammatic and painterly gestures. Within an organic amas sing of form\, Ritchie creates densely layered eco-systems of information\, retaining multiple styles of presentation. These canvases contain activity of complex natures\, experiences\, states\, but their rich and saturated b eauty also captures moments of stillness where something impossible to gras p is left un-grasped. The images are saturated with light and meaning\, but bruised\, as if the very process of examination is changing the physics of the forms described. Posed against a white ground\, they could be emerging from what Paul Klee called &lsquo\;the interworld&rsquo\;\, the dimensionl ess space of possibility.

The fragmentary diagrams within the paintings are all contained within the immersive wall installation The Temptation of the Diagram\, an immense network of diagrams\, collected \, mapped\, digitized\, stripped of legible signs and reprocessed into esse ntial gestures. Two accompanying source-books offer a guide for viewers thr ough this vast investigation of the complex systems underlying the human cr eative and representational process and represent the origin and foundation of the works shown within its circuit. Confronted with the impossibility o f comprehending the whole &ndash\; what the artist describes as an oceanic feeling &ndash\; Ritchie locates our sense of a vast universe without the a bandonment of meaning. Together\, the installation and the books describe g enerations of systems\, ideas\, interpretations\, and reinforce the idea th at it is the diagrammatic impulse that insistently connects\, links and dra ws ideas together regardless of the possibility of ultimate comprehension. In doing so\, Ritchie emphasizes the double constitution of painting and dr awing as forms of &rsquo\;hypostatic abstraction&rsquo\; &ndash\; a kind of abstraction that carries various levels of meaning.

Nested w ithin this sprawling cerebral web of information is Night Drawing\ , a sculpture comprised of a matrix of interlocking segments designed to pa ssively nest within one-another\, creating a puzzle-like structure. Each se gment employs the artist&rsquo\;s specific vernacular of form\, and is draw n from the universe of diagrams that surround it. Mathematically based on m odeling strange attractors explored in collaboration with architects Aranda \Lasch\, the laser-cut aluminum construction takes two-dimensional form int o a realm of three-dimensional drawing\, forming a double moebius strip.
Expanding the space of drawing and painting into the realm of t he moving image\, Ritchie&rsquo\;s hyper-saturated film\, Monstrance\, traces an abstract and romantic narrative of past\, present and future \, as he mixes live performance footage and animation for the first time in his practice. Cut to a polyphonic choral score composed and performed by R itchie&rsquo\;s long-standing collaborator Bryce Dessner\, the film feature s singer Shara Worden as a masked oracle\, presiding over a mythic\, or pos t-post apocalyptic seascape. Created to be exhibited within a longshoreman& rsquo\;s chapel in Boston as part of his current residency at the ICA Bosto n\, the film contains within its landscapes and choreographed gestures subt le diagrams and information that make visible the greater network of links underlying his practice.

Over the last seven years\, through substantial cross disciplinary collaborations\, Ritchie has consciously ext ended his own projects to explore the possibility of shared systems\, aggre gations and collaborations in contexts as diverse as opera\, contemporary m usic\, architecture\, horticulture\, urban design\, theology and science th rough endeavors\, both collaborative and intimate\, to concretize and reali ze ephemeral and intangible theories of information and time. This exhibiti on proposes a further step\, the re-integration of these diverse practices into a network of connections\, a shared sea of information that retains it s distinct properties in a state of superposition. In &lsquo\;Superposition and Field&rsquo\;\, recently published by MIT press\, Ritchie writes\, &ld quo\;not only are &lsquo\;form&rsquo\; and &lsquo\;contentʼ the same thing\ , namely information\, but they are super-positionable and therefore do not enjoy any inherent oppositions at any scale.&rdquo\; &lsquo\;Ten Possible Links&rsquo\; specifically refers to a navigational diagram by the philosop her Graham Harman that describes this aspect of what he calls &lsquo\;the q uadruple object&rsquo\; and is the subject of an essay by Ritchie in the fo rthcoming &lsquo\;Realism\, Materialism\, Art&rsquo\; published by Sternber g Press and Bard CCS. In the essay Ritchie writes: &ldquo\;Over the last tw o centuries\, the diagram has become the essential mechanism for our collec tive efforts to articulate and negotiate an almost impossible circumstance: reality itself. It embodies our interest in humanity as a directed and lim ited quantity\, one we all have a vested interest in understanding and exte nding to the very limits of our abilities.&rdquo\; For Ritchie\, acknowledg ing our incapability of grasping the totality of the universe is not simply a reason to let go\, but also the vital force that compels investigation.

Matthew Ritchie was born in 1964. Ritchie is currently su bject of an 18-month interdisciplinary residency at the Institute of Contem porary Art\, Boston which encompasses several major works and will activate the entire museum through installation\, sound performance and video. A ne w molecular sculpture garden for the Food and Drug Administration\, Silver Spring\, Maryland will open on October 1\, 2014 and a 15\,000 square foot s ite-specific rooftop drawing for a building in Miami designed by Aranda\Las ch\, will open for Design Miami on December 3\, 2014. His work has been sho wn in numerous exhibitions worldwide\, including the Whitney Biennial\, the Sydney Biennial\, the Sã\;o Paulo Biennial\, the Venice Architecture Biennale\, the Seville Biennale\, and the Havana Bienal\, and is in the pe rmanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art\, Institute of Contemporary Art\, Boston\, Guggenheim Museum\, Whitney Museum of American Art\, San Fr ancisco Museum of Modern Art\, and other institutions worldwide\, including a permanent large-scale installation at the Massachusetts Institute of Tec hnology.

Andrea Rosen Gallery is delighted to present new sculpture a nd photographic works by Matt Keegan with \;Landfall\, 1970\, a totemic column by Anne Truitt (1921-2004). Keegan&rsquo\;s body of new wo rks builds upon his ongoing inquiry into the sociability and singularity of industrially produced forms\, and together with Truitt hatches a sensuous investigation of material\, surface and form.

In Keegan&rsquo\;s unique approach to fabrication\, the template is both a scalable model and a uniquely factual form. The artist's untitled steel sculptures begin from rudimentary\, randomly generated paper cutouts\, which are enlarged\, lase r-cut in steel and machine bent to approximate the original prototype. Thes e abstractly legible sculptures together with his framed works make visible the act of translation from template to form.

Previous sculptur e by Keegan has explored the potential of color as sign\, reference and cod e\, particularly as manifest in the urban environment. Within this exhibiti on\, the artist&rsquo\;s steel sculptures are so saturated with spray finis h and powder coating as to achieve a unity of color and form. Truitt&rsquo\ ;s vertical wooden sculpture\, meticulously covered with many coats of pain t\, stands as a profound integration of painting and sculpture. Together th ese works generate a dialogue centered on tactility through focused materia l decisions.

Truitt describes in Daybook (1982) her realization of color &rdquo\;having meaning not only in counterpoint [&hellip\;]\, but also in itself\, as holding meaning all on its own.&rdquo\; In Truitt&rsquo \;s work\, color is not merely a decorative surface\, but rather a bodily l ocus of meaning: &rdquo\;In some mysterious way\, I felt myself to be color .&rdquo\; Through a common treatment of surface\, color and its ability to embody\, the intergenerational pairing emphasizes Truitt&rsquo\;s unique po sition among the minimalists.

Framing the entire exhibition\, an d expanding the recurring lattice template\, Keegan has outfitted Gallery 2 with 21 sheetrock panels\, standardized architectural units that the artis t has hand-etched in vernacular patterning. Previously\, Keegan has used th is material and process to make freestanding sculpture. For this exhibition \, they are shown for the first time as a ground for other works to be inst alled upon\, departing further from their original incarnation as object to function as container for the works within. Sharing a formal affinity with these patterns\, Keegan&rsquo\;s photographs possess a stable figure-groun d relationship akin to that of the panels\, and like the lattice\, contain and collect\, like a city&rsquo\;s sieve.

Matt Keegan is an artist based in Brooklyn\, New York. Next year\, he will have a solo show a t Rogaland Kunstsenter in Stavanger\, Norway. His work has been included in recent notable group exhibitions at The Art Institute of Chicago\; Foam Fo tografiemuseum\, Amsterdam\; and the Deutsche Guggenheim. Keegan&rsquo\;s w ork is included in numerous private and public collections\, including The Whitney Museum of American Art\; the Guggenheim Museum\; and The Metropolit an Museum of Art. Keegan is the co-founder of North Drive Press\, an art pu blication published from 2004-2010. In 2012\, Keegan edited ==\, an art edi tion published by mfc miché\;le didier. ==#2 will be launched in Spri ng\, 2015.

For Tamara Henderson&rsquo\;s first solo exhibition in New Y ork entitled \;Speaking in Scales\, \;she will present a 1 6mm film\, sculpture and painting.

\n

Tamara Henderson's pr actice begins with the diaristic note-taking of \;her experiences and t houghts under various altered or unconscious states such as sleep or hypnos is. \;These notes are then elaborated upon and translated into differen t media: writing\, 16mm film\, sculpture and painting. Within her \;ver y personal and subjective \;practice\, \;artworks are means\, vesse ls of communication between different states: \;conscious and unconscio us\, dream and awake-ness.

\n

Henderson's short 16mm films are often based on \;storyboards or screenplays - texts translated into scenography\, images and movements. \;In each film the succession of e vents is carefully planned\, captured in single shots \;and edited in-c amera. The main characters are often quotidian objects (bottles\, glasses\, plants\, furniture\, pineapples) that are manipulated and altered\, becomi ng subjects of a narrative that is both uncanny and ordinary\, absurd and f amiliar &ndash\; and in which a human presence\, the artist's or somebody e lse's\, is never explicit but only implied.

\n

Henderson's ongoing series of sculptural/furniture works are also based on drawings and sketches realized after sessions of hypnosis. \;The resulting sculptur es simultaneously retain dreamlike qualities (bright colors\, unconventiona l shapes) but also their identity as functional objects. \;Additionally \, part of her practice are "storyboard" paintings and collages\, realized with different materials\, that function as maquettes for the films\, and i n which symbols and maze-like patterns are recurrent.

\n

Ta mara Henderson (born 1982 in \;Sackville\, Canada)\, lives and works be tween \;Vancouver and Stochkolm. \;Her work has been recently prese nted in solo shows at \;Grazer Kunstverein\, Graz (Austria)\; Walter Ph ilips Gallery\, Banff Alberta (in collaboration with Julia Feyer) and Kunst verein Nü\;rnberg (2013). She was also recently included in group exhib itions at the \;Toronto Kunstverein (2014)\; \;Kunstverein Nü\; rnberg\, \;Magasin 3\, \;Stockholm\, \;(2013) and \;DOCUMEN TA 13\, Kassel (2012). \;Upcoming presentation include Frieze Live with Rodeo Gallery\, London and Kunsthall Stavanger\, Norway (with Santiago Mos tyn) in 2014\; ICA Philadelphia (with Julia Feyer) in 2015. \;

A Shore Thing\, Fredrik Væ\;rslev's second sol o exhibition at the gallery will feature a new body of works captured entir ely in white.

\n

Fredrik Væ\;rslev&rsquo\;s work is distinctly co llaborative in nature. When considering different series of paintings\, alw ays evident are the elements left to another &ndash\; to another artist or person\, or place\, to nature\, to malfunctions\, to temperature. The &ldqu o\;garden&rdquo\; paintings &ndash\; works that are comprised of wood slats are left outside to gather and reveal the index of environmental happening s and forces\; or the &ldquo\;canopy&rdquo\; paintings that are painted on canvas exposed to contingencies of air\, humidity\, and sun that often brid ge different geographies and reference the suburban window shade.

\n

F or this most recent series and for \;A Shore Thing\, the works are created with a mechanism used to make boundaries on football and socce r fields as well as roadway lines. A spray can that is mounted on a set of wheels &ndash\; the trolley easily moves forward and backward (the mechanis m itself manufactured to make only straight lines) and resists any curves o r deviations. These defined and consistent back-and-forth lines &ndash\; al most a gridding or mapping out of the surface of the canvas - are layered u nder and over more chaotic marks made by wheels rolling back and forth thro ugh paint &ndash\; and uneven lines made by a malfunctioning sprayer and ma rks made from drips and differing amounts of paint &ndash\; as the temperat ure rises or drops.

\n

About Fredrik&rsquo\;s work\, Peter Andam write s: &ldquo\;One of the most probing features of Fredrik Væ\;rslevʼs pai nterly non-project is a relentless\, yet palpably and rigorously quiet\, de stabilization of mark-making signatures\, &ldquo\;signatures of the world\, &rdquo\; and different vectors and variations of pure contingency. It is as if the visual and tactile world that is teased out to the fore in his work is always on the verge of collapse on the weight of its own positing inexi stence.&rdquo\;

\n

The works in the show are monochromatically white\, thus highlighting the dynamism inherent in this project of contingency fur ther. The series unfolds like a collection of possibilities of a practice t hat is not wholly defined by the artist&rsquo\;s hand.
