LANE : Installations, Paintings and Works on Paper: Vol. 64-200
Opening Reception: Friday, May 17, 6-9 PM
LANE’S art explores duality of forms and meanings through a combination of paint, canvas, books, political writings and anonymous diaries. In their totality, they present a survey of subtle corridors between representation and abstraction, image and text, as well as individual and collective identities in the East and the West. LANE accumulates elements for his installations from studio locations in New York and Beijing. The artist collects the discarded diaries of workers from the era of the Chinese Cultural Revolution and juxtaposes excerpts from his own writings on these historic and yet forgotten texts.

NOT PAST: Old Toys and Lost Friends
Solo Exhibition by Brian Fernandes-Halloran
Opening Reception: Friday, June 7, 2013, 6-9 PM
Brian Fernandes-Halloran assembles and sculpts his memories from discarded objects and wax. He searches for materials, often passively, allowing them to catch his attention. In his studio they are transformed into objects carrying the markings and wear of expired purposes. The assemblages harness the collective memories and material qualities of these objects, diminishing the distinction between individuality and collectivity, happenstance and narrative, past and present.
