You Are Not Alone
May 15 – June 12, 2019
Opening reception: Wednesday, May 15, 6 -8 PM
Casimir Effect is pleased to present You Are Not Alone, an abstract painting exhibition curated by Jackie Meier and Lisa Taliano. It is the inaugural show of an artist-run project space/time/mattering on the Upper East Side.
The abstract paintings in this show are a representation of the world from within – matter painted as a dynamic and shifting entanglement of relations. In whatever combination of diffuse or sharply defined areas of color, gestural marks, systematic strokes, biomorphic forms or geometric shapes, the flatness of the surface is always considered. In a diffractively defined net of inscriptions, that creates a lively and indeterminate fluctuation of things that come in and out of being, these paintings compress the space between subject and object in a move that reveals space to be a charged field of energy and potentiality.
This first show includes artists: Kylie Heidenheimer, Pinkney Herbert, Erick Johnson, Jackie Meier, Laura Newman, Pierre Obando, Jennifer Riley, Russell Roberts, Lisa Taliano and Chuck Webster. It is a celebration and recognition of the artists’ indebtedness to each other as friends and painters. Companions in conflict and collaboration, the artists in this show are tied together by the threads of making, thinking and doing, entangled in a painting dialog, bound together in a knotted net of past, present, and yet to come.
Friday: 12 – 6pm
Sat-Sun: 11 am – 6pm
