DESCRIPTION

Jack Fischer Gallery is pleased to present Spyder Gears + Identity Maps, a solo exhibition by Ward Schumaker. Join us for the opening reception on March 30, from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. at our 311 Potrero location. The show will be up through May 11, 2019.

When asked about this work, Ward Schumaker quoted a favorite author:

"I think that the rationalization of the vision of things rooted in the work of art is like the demasking of actors. It is the end of the game, it is the impoverishment of the question of the work….In the work of art the umbilical cord is not yet cut that joins it to the whole of the problem. The blood of the mystery is still circulating; the ends of the vessels escape into the surrounding night and return full of a dark fluid."

In a letter from Bruno Schulz to his friend Stanislaw Ignacy Witkiewicz, as quoted in Regions of the Great Heresy by Jerzy Ficowski (W. W. Norton 2003)
