Opening Reception: Friday, October 3, 2014 / 7-10pm

Exhibition Dates: October 3 – October 29, 2014

 

Space 1026 is pleased to announce our upcoming exhibition, Please Pardon Our  Appearance, by Jacob Lunderby. This exhibition opens Friday, Oct. 3, 2014 with a reception from 7-10 pm.  For this exhibition, Lunderby depicts images of windows that have been digitally modified and layered over enamel paint on wood panel. While the production of work includes the use of digital resources and printing, the artist’s objective is to see the work in a context of painting.

The paintings of windows originate from one of two gestures: blocking out to prevent observation into an interior space, or covering a break to arrest fracturing of the window surface.   As with the vernacular of painting, the images of windows shift between presentation of depth, surface tension and reflectiveness. The marginal materials used as devices to control vision and the sense of precarious formalism found in this meshwork of image and pattern provides a generative model to engage layers of attention, materiality and durations of time, from the context of a restaged image to the life span of a painting.

Through the process of using images that gesture towards methods of concealment, containment and protection, Lunderby uses painting to engage the potential to contain, disrupt or direct vision, and address the image/painting object in its complex relationship to time and context.

Jacob Lunderby is an artist, educator and preparator based in Philadelphia, PA. His recent exhibitions include: Redactor, Pentimenti Gallery, Philadelphia, PA (solo); Cephalopod Interface, Okinawa Prefectural Art Museum, Naha City, Okinawa; Confiscape, Circa Gallery, Minneapolis, MN; The Implication, Emory and Henry College, Emory, VA (solo); Painting Zombies, Regis Center for the Arts, Minneapolis, MN; Heaven on Earth, Little Berlin, Philadelphia, PA; Minnesota Museum of American Art, St. Paul, MN; and more. He received an MFA from the University of Minnesota (2002) and BFA from the Minneapolis College of Art & Design (1998). Lunderby is represented by Pentimenti Gallery, Philadelphia. All work appearing in this exhibition comes courtesy of Pentimenti Gallery.

Zine Of The Month @ Booklyn – Opening 11/2

ZineoftheMonth_Booklyn_bookmark

Zine Of The Month
November 2- December 8, 2013
OPENING RECEPTION SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 2. 7-10PM
Booklyn Artists Alliance, 37 Greenpoint Ave, 4FL. Brooklyn, 11222

Zine Of The Month is a project started in 2009 that releases limited-edition and handmade artist zines, featuring collaborations between printer and publisher Mark Price and a plethora of Philadelphia and New York based artists. Each monthly publication is hand-printed and bound by Price at Space 1026, a long standing artist co-op and exhibition space in the Chinatown neighborhood of Philadelphia. Zine Of The Month has involved many artists who work and who keep studios at Space 1026. The monthly releases are offered through a yearly subscription and feature varying reproduction and binding techniques including screen printing and photocopying to translate the artists’ work to the intimate and tactile medium of ‘zines.

Booklyn will host a retrospective exhibition with a library of past releases on view, coupled with print ephemera from the project, and a gallery of original works by artists who have participated in the project including Beth Brandon, Jason Hsu, Hilary Price, Abbey L Sarver, Max Seckel, Lance Simmons, Miriam Singer, Jason Rusnock, and James Ulmer.

ZINE OF THE MONTH is the nineteenth in a series of group exhibitions dedicated to providing self-publishing artists, who generally share their work through printed matter and other ephemeral media, with a platform for exhibition, experimentation and exploration outside of the printed format. This exhibition is made possible in part by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and additionally in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council.

For more information please contact aimee@booklyn.org

NOTHING IS RATHER DO! Keith Greiman/Marth Rich

Nothing Is Rather Do

keithgreiman.com

martharich.com

Nothing is Rather Do featuring new work from Philadelphia artists Keith Warren Greiman and Martha Rich at Space 1026 on April 5th.

Greiman and Rich met in Philadelphia three years ago through mutual friends in the design and illustration world. After an introductory discussion of the effects of eating too many skittles, they discovered a shared love of the silly and the absurd and have now come together to create a show of mixed media works celebrating this common ground.

Greiman says, “For this new collection of work, I am memorializing objects and scenes that I blindly coast through day after day: a pile of clothes on the floor, a vacant lot down the street, a cardboard toilet paper roll on the bathroom floor.”

All Greiman’s paintings are of objects and things within arms reach and are injected with his humorous and quirky way of observing the everyday world. “I try to approach all subjects, no matter how macabre or heavy, with a good dose of humor. Tears of a clown.”

Since receiving her MFA, Rich has been eavesdropping and collecting words and using them in her paintings. “My art is about what cracks me up and what disturbs me or what is absurd or what is at hand. Social acceptance? No. Self-acceptance? Yes. It’s a lesson in the ridiculous.”

Rich work uses collaged People magazine parts, paints on rejected CMYK screen prints of a rejected painting done years ago, includes silhouettes of friends and strangers and many of the eavesdropped conversations she has collected over the years to create an absurd narrative of life in the modern city.

Keith Greiman Bio:

Keith Warren Greiman lives and works in Philadelphia, PA. His bright and animated images of real and supernatural beings depict life, captured in experience, being ascendant, melancholic and at all times wild. Keith is a graduate of Tyler School of Art.

Keith’s work has been shown in various galleries and publications from all over and everywhere. Some clients include LA Times, Village Voice, Newsweek, the Fader, Ace Hotels, Fantagraphics, the Utne Reader, and Willamete Week. His work has been recognized by American Illustration, the Society of Illustrators and Graphis.

Martha Rich Bio:

Martha Rich lived the typical, suburban life – until she followed her husband to Los Angeles where, just short of a picket fence and 2.5 children her average American life unraveled. To cope with divorce, fate lead her to a class taught by painters Rob and Christian Clayton. They persuaded her to quit the pantyhose, corporate world, leave her human resources job at Universal Studios behind and become an artist full-time. She graduated with honors from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena.

Her commercial clients include Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, Penguin UK, McSweeney’s, Portland Mercury, Y&R, Village Voice, Bon Appetit, San Francisco Chronicle, Henry Holt Publisher, and Country Music TV to name just a few. Her work has been featured in the Beck video “Girl” and on the television show “Girls.” A book, Sketchbook Expressionism, featuring artwork from her sketchbooks was published by Murphy Design and Rich’s artwork has been shown in galleries throughout the U.S. and internationally.

She is currently living in her hometown of Philadelphia and recently received her MFA in Painting from the University of Pennsylvania. Rich also teaches at Tyler School of Art, Drexel University and FIT.
