Andrea Schwartz Gallery is pleased to announce a solo exhibition featuring new paintings by Philip Buller\, wi th an opening reception held on Wednesday\, October 8th from 5:30 &ndash\; 7:30 pm.

\n

In this new body of work\, Used Paintings\, Phili p Buller questions the use of a painting for both the painter and the viewe r. \; While the viewers can determine the use of a painting for themsel ves\, for Buller the paintings are a vehicle of creative and personal growt h. \; Guided by his subconscious and intuition\, Buller first focuses o n composition\, allowing meaning to evolve from shape and shadow. \;

\n

Philip Buller has exhibited at the Elliott Louis Gallery\, Vancouver\ , BC\, California Museum of Art\, Santa Rosa\, CA\, Susan Street Fine Art\, Solana Beach\, CA\, and Alpha Gallery\, Boston\, MA. \; Buller receive d his MFA from the California College of Arts and Crafts in 1994. \; Th is is his ninth exhibition at Andrea Schwartz Gallery.

\n

This group exhibiti on of contemporary portraiture explores the aesthetic\, psychological\, and emotional implications of the gaze in photography today. Here\, the tradit ional view of a portrait is subverted: instead\, a dynamic and ambiguous re lationship between object and subject develops. The power of the gaze is bl urred the moment the sitter becomes a partner in the art-making process. In cluded in the exhibition are works by Nicholas Albrecht\, Caitlin Atkinson\ , Richard Avedon\, Charles Berger\, Jim Campbell\, Kelli Connell\, Gohar Da shti\, Beth Yarnelle Edwards\, Katy Grannan\, Elizabeth Heyert\, r.r. jones \, Henrik Kerstens\, Miguel Angelo Libarnes\, Lesley Louden\, Jana Marcus\, Shirin Neshat\, Catherine Opie\, Aline Smithson\, and Larry Sultan. \;  \;

\n

Presented as a cou nterpoint to Robert Henri&rsquo\;s California Portraits\, the exhi bition is a critical look at the creative&mdash\;and ever expansive&mdash\; practice of portraiture some 100 years after Henri.

Amber Cowan&rsquo\;s pieces ar e made by re-working discarded\, up-cycled or unwanted pressed glassware pr oduced by some of the best known\, but now-defunct glass factories in Ameri ca. \; Simultaneously subversive and patriotic the objects explore the texture of material seduction and recount the history of US glass manufactu ring\; tracing its rise\, glory\, demise and its influence on society.  \;

\n

Cowan &ldquo\;reincarnates&rdquo\; objects currently relegated to the aesthetic dustbin of history through th e process of assembled and flame worked glass. Porcelain\, wood\, marble an d even human flesh are subtly roused in the material. Seen as animate struc ture the forms become somewhat menacing in scale and texture. Using repetit ion and viral accrual\, the work is viscerally sensual\, teetering between beautiful and sinister. Although the pieces in their original state will no longer be looked at as objects of desire\, their reincarnated life tells a n honest story about their past glory and forlorn future. \;
