I love when I have the opportunity to promote my friends. Last night Sam Adelman, editor and co-producer with Daryl Sledge, had their debut at the African Diaspora International Film Festival at Teacher's College, Columbia University in NY—
The artist’s site-specific installation, Loop Holes, a conflagration of wool tubes and tape, felt and stringy bits, is true knit-bliss. A gleeful miasma of lines and twists and knots of color, the structure mounts the stairs and balcony, loosely knitting a helter-skelter scaffolding that seems to emanate from an oversize yet unassuming yarn ball nearby. Prismatic and sumptuously haywire, the net result is this side of euphoria."
SILAS MARDER GALLERY is pleased to announce Jason Middlebrook: Every Tree is a Map, a solo exhibition of recent painting and sculpture, opening August 16 and on view through September 14, 2014. A reception for the artist will be held on Saturday, August 16, from 5-8pm.
Every Tree is a Map consists of the artist’s recent “plank” paintings. Hand-selected, rough-hewn slices of various hardwoods are adorned with brightly hued patterns that mimic the trees’ natural growth rings in a language and materials that are manufactured by contemporary culture.
