  3. Artist Matthew Fisher on JD Walsh ROOM TONE

    Reading Daniel Delis Hill’s history of ‘Men’s Underwear and Swimwear’, I was reminded of JD Walsh’s recent wall mounted paintings. In 1960 Du Pont created Lycra. By using synthetic fiber, these new trunks were more lightweight and formfitting than earlier swimwear. Like Lycra, Walsh’s paintings expose their under structure by covering it up. These forms, revealed by Walsh’s tightly stretched fabric, are familiar shapes: triangles, circles, wedges. Airbrushed shadows cast by the forms themselves, mimic, while redefine the shapes below. Creating a familiar, but unknown, overall shape. Like when the mini chocolate covered pretzels melt together at the bottom of a forgotten near empty bag – these works are examples of when the whole is greater then the sum of the parts. A super pretzel, even though you can hold it with one hand, you can’t eat in one bite. JD Walsh’s new work is not to be missed. ‘Room Tone’ at Sardine Brooklyn, 286 Stanhope Street, through 17 November 2013.

  6. Matthew Mahler | Remasters

    Remasters this Friday, October 4 from 7 to 9pm

    Please join us for Matthew Mahler - Remasters, a closing party and re-imagining of Matthew’s current solo show Masters of the Fine Arts. For the closing weekend, we’ll be providing a second take on the show by completing rearranging it and also hanging more work. Hope to see you there!

    The body of work in Masters of the Fine Arts represents a point where Matthew Mahler began making drastic changes and taking chances with the way he made paintings. Moving beyond commonplace abstraction, he explores image making that goes past the one note and into more idea-focused narratives. Overlaying internet and art jargon over lush dyed canvases, the work is in part a commentary on language and being an artist today. At the same time, they are beautiful, tongue and cheek, and fantastical, beyond pushing an agenda. Ultimately, they are reflections of the surprises that can happen when an artist breathe’s in, takes a step back, looks around, then jumps into the unknown.

    Born on Long Island, Matthew currently lives and works in Ridgewood, Queens. He earned a B.S. in art education from Hofstra University and an MFA from CUNY Queens College.
