Opening: Jason Yates Exhibition
Barbara Davis Gallery proudly announces the inaugural solo-exhibition for Jason Yates, All We Ever Wanted Was Everything, opening Saturday, May 12, 2012, with an artist's reception from 6:30pm - 8:30pm.
Yates marks his first solo-exhibition in Houston with a new series of paintings, sculptures, and site-specific works. Yates' meticulous and nuanced work traffics in the vocabulary of control and our preoccupation with time; in the marking of the beginning and the projecting of the end. Yates is interested in the space that exists between these moments. His meticulous paintings use repetition to explore the abstract space where our concept of linear time breaks down, is resurrected, and breaks down once more. The constant repetition of line and pattern act as a way to mark the passage of time, to meditate the ebb and flow of action and inaction. Reinforcing this idea, areYates' "Monk Box" sculptures. His series of simply constructed boxes work in concert with the paintings. Where the paintings meditate the passage of time, the boxes become the place of meditation. Yates' site-specific installations become three-dimensional manifestations of his paintings with each element acting as a sculptural tick marking a continuous, irregular cycle.
Opening: Joe Mancuso Exhibition
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.
