Black & White Gallery/Project Space presents five artists working with diverse concepts and themes in a variety of media, all translating the language, symbols and articles of everyday life into the language of art in a broader sense. The featured artists successfully individualize mass culture by appropriating and altering utilitarian objects, book covers, newpaper headlines and internet images, in order to make them their own.



Isidro Blasco


 





ISIDRO BLASCO

Selected works from a new body of work on view at the gallery from February 25 to April 3, 2011 - This Is What I Remember - a series of small-scale wall and large-scale floor sculptures, photo collages with aerial views of mega metropolises where facts, memories, images, and forms are woven into a complex mesh of fragmentation, superimposition and mosaic patterns. Each object, each material catches the attention of the viewer enticing it into a web that is rich in associative and imaginative spaces.


AJ Bocchino


 


A.J. BOCCHINO

collects headlines and photographs from different media sources including the New York Times, Washington Post, and Newsweek and uses this information as data for systems that generate complex drawings and sculptures. Projects are driven by an analysis of the mass media as well as the processes of accumulation, archiving, and record keeping.
Julian Montague


 





JULIAN MONTAGUE

invents a library collectively titled Volumes from an Imagined Intellectual History of Animals, Architecture and Man. They suggest an alternate version of the mid-20th century in which a great deal of thought was given to the scientific, social, economic, and psychological issues raised by the presence of animals (particularly invertebrates) in architectural spaces.

The first set of faux books is currently on view at the Norton Museum of Art, Now WHAT? exhibition.

Shimon Okshteyn


 





SHIMON OKSHTEYN

focuses on the items of everyday life, some already on their way into the annals of history.

Most recent works are currently on view at Triumph Gallery.

Alicia Ross  





ALICIA ROSS
looks into the mechanism of the consensual production of symbolic values. The works’ often provocative appearances highlight the artist's ongoing exploration of ideas surrounding conflicting views of feminine identity in the contemporary society and the ubiquitous virtuous/voracious societal impulses towards the female form

Selected works from the recent solo show at Black & White Gallery are currently on view at Flanders Gallery.
