Brooklyn, NY September 2010 Causey Contemporary is pleased to announce their November exhibitions: Freshly Minted Triggers featuring the steel sculptures of Arthur Medick and Homer Yost: Drawings of Maria Gracia y Navit Yolainne. These two exhibitions will be the second solo show for Arthur Medick and the fourth solo show for Homer Yost with the gallery. Both exhibitions will run from November 19 - December 12, 2010 with an opening reception on November 19 from 6 - 9 p.m. Followed by an artists talk with both artists on December 10 at 7:30 p.m..
Drawings: Maria Gracia y Navit Yolainne marks the first time artist Homer Yost has exclusively exhibited his drawings. Ordinarily he exhibits his sculptures with the occasional drawing included in the show. He says that when Causey Contemporary director, Tracy Causey-Jeffery first asked him to do a drawing exhibition, he felt like he had been asked to take a long vacation on a remote island and do nothing but snorkeling. His drawings come from a highly collaborative process of working with models in this case Maria-Gracia Pendreanez and Navit Yolainne Mean.
The drawings included in the exhibition are the direct result of imagery created through movement, silence and sometimes dialogue. Homer has been drawing and sculpting for thirty years. In 1993 he was one of the sculptors who restored the Freedom Statue on the Capital Building in D.C. In 2006, he documented in bas relief the destruction and survivors post hurricane Katrina in Biloxi Mississippi. Homer’s sculptures and drawings have appeared in solo and group exhibitions throughout the USA, England and Italy.
