Gallery > Being in Love, 2014

In Jason Molina's sweet and discordant song Being in Love he croons, “Being in love, you are completely broken, then put back together the one piece that was yours.”

“Being in Love,” my January 2014 solo show borrows it’s title from this song by Songs:Ohia.

The work for this show engages with this lyric by deconstructing the surface of the canvas. Emphasizing materiality of the canvas.

Much of the work for this show began as one giant painting that I cut down to several smaller works, then finished at their new size. The often double-sided work was folded and draped. Some of the work was hidden from view as a B-side to the painting. Other parts came into view when the lights were extinguished as the shapes were illuminated by glow-in-the-dark paint.

The canvas hung over the edge in places, and was stapled to the supports. The work for this show insinuates interiors, bodies, and landscapes producing abstract paintings with layered areas and tight spaces.

The space where this work was show is called The Garage in Charlottesville, Virginia and often acts as both musical venue and art gallery space.
