Ochi Projects Presents 'Soft Pretzel' Group Show @ Vacation Gallery In New York

Soft Pretzel features works that investigate sculptural forms and perceived tactility. Evaluating our ability to anticipate sensory experiences as they are conveyed through visual cues, each work explores implied softness, rigidity, dimension, weight and movement. The exhibition includes works by Tanya Brodsky, Rives Granade, Nasim Hantehzadeh, Lilian Martinez, Daniel McKee, Erin Morrison, Claudia Parducci, Ben Sanders and James Seward. Soft Pretzel is on view through October 28 @ Vacation Gallery, 24A Orchard Street, New York, NY 10002. images courtesy of Ochi Projects

"Bright Resolutions" Group Show @ CES Gallery In Los Angeles

CES Gallery presents Bright Resolutions, a group exhibition featuring works by Tanya Brodsky, Jonathan Chapline, and Megan Stroech. Our senses are saturated, near collapse, overloaded. Endless media consumption is more exhausting than liberating, but if you lower your screen brightness your battery can last longer. Resolution is the act of breaking down complexity into constitutive parts, as in infinite Rs, Gs, and Bs, but to have resolve is to be determined and resolving is diplomatic. We like hi-res, which we associate with the professional, the incorporated, authenticity, truth, but we feed on and stream with lower resolutions, the type that clogged digital arteries can handle, fuzzy copies of copies. Through down-rezzed re-production new entities are formed, abstracted from originals; new contexts created, meanings recoded, resolutions shifted. "Bright Resolutions" will be on view until January 22, 2017 at CES Gallery in Los Angeles. photographs by CES Gallery
