Joe Mancuso | Anodyne
Barbara Davis Gallery proudly announces a new solo exhibition by Joe Mancuso entitled Anodyne opening Friday, March 2, 2012, with an artist's reception from 6:30pm - 8:30pm.
Joe Mancuso debuts new paintings, sculpture, and a site-specific installation for his latest solo-exhibition, Anodyne. Improvisation plays an integral role in Mancuso's latest series process-based works. The genesis of his extemporaneous latex and resin paintings start with a layer of dripped and poured latex paint on resin that are followed by subsequent layers of latex and resin that directly relate to the previous layer. Typical of Mancuso's process is the use of non-traditional materials such as resin and polywood, which are used to create lyrical, molded components. In the case of his sculpture, each resin component is layered in such a way to create a luminous sphere while his site-specific wall installation includes dozens of molded polywood components that are contingent upon the preceding strata.
Joe Mancuso: Anodyne is on view Friday, March 2, 2012, through May 5, 2012, with an artist's reception on Friday, March 2, 2012, from 6:30 - 8:30pm.
