Six installations and exhibitions at Gladstone House consider the built environment. Not only do the artists reflect upon what has been built, but the act of building and assembling is part of their processes, through collage, sculpture, digital techniques and editing and altering scenes.
In a two-person exhibition connected by both order and abstraction, Jeremie Warshafsky assembles original photographs into composite images and Cate McGuire combines collage and paint to create new structures.
Adam Chapman’s gestural painting, rooted in a digital image, captures an instant of time on a city street, a fleeting moment of speed.
Asli Alin draws upon her architectural training, assembling basic elements into intricate structures with glowing surfaces.
Alex R.M. Thompson’s prints bring together the structures and infrastructures of the post-industrial city with the human subject, forming hybrid cityscapes that map processes of excavation, planning, construction, and demolition onto personal identity formation.
Jane Forrest’s oil paintings of portions of residential, commercial and industrial buildings are a form of preservation and a love letter to the life around her.
Nicole Beno cuts and collages her photos of architecture into new landscapes, creating fictional worlds that become personal memories and experiences of each location.
Most installations are on view until April 28, 2024.
