Summer Group Exhibition
Derek Eller Gallery is pleased to present our summer group exhibition:
Comprised of wood, styrofoam, plaster, fiberglass, wire and crusted over in pastel-hued acrylic, Bercowetz's sculpture resembles a fallen ornate chandelier which has been disinterred from the depths of the sea. Bercowetz received grants from the Jerome Foundation and NYFA in 2009.
Exploring minimalism and the loneliness of the office environment, Breckenridge hermetically seals a houseplant in a plexiglass cube fitted with industrial carpeting and fluorescent lights. Breckenridge's work is currently on view in The Public Art Fund's Trapdoor at Metrotech Center.
Gordon uses inkjet printouts of found internet images to construct three-dimensional tableaux, which he then photographs. Included in this exhibition is a recent image of a landscape with hairy legs and a rainbow. Gordon will be featured in the upcoming New Photography exhibition at MoMA this Fall.
Walking the line between comedy and horror, Greenfield contributes a carved foam wall relief containing a life-size skeleton with an arrow through its head and clutching a cheeseburger in its hand. Greenfield's work was recently featured in No Soul For Sale at X-Initiative.
Jessica Jackson Hutchins
Investigating ceramics through the lens of motherhood and the body, Hutchins presents a glazed vessel jauntily balanced atop a sculpted torso and legs. Hutchins work is currently on view in the exhibition Dirt on Delight at The Walker Art Center.
David Kennedy Cutler
Kennedy Cutler's photo-based sculpture containing plexiglass, ashes, and ground and grated compact discs evokes a geological artifact from the not-so-distant past. Kennedy Cutler will have his New York solo debut at Derek Eller Gallery this Fall.
Liz Magic Laser
In this video, Laser directs a surgeon via the DaVinci robotic surgical system to rifle through the contents of her purse and transform it into a rudimentary abstract expressionist assemblage. Laser just graduated from the Whitney Independent Study Program and her work is on view at Heist Gallery in New York.
Tennis' assembles painted bits of corrugated cardboard to form anthropomorphic architectural collages which evoke Constructivism and the vernacular of the American landscape.
