MAT TONELLI   JAMES JOHN SMALL

JULY 10-31, 2015

OPENING RECEPTION
JULY 10, 2015
7PM-10PM

Mat Tonelli and James John Small, both dealing in constructs of moments and the sublime, find new ways to push paint in directions that follow the footsteps of Abstract Expressionists, as well as drawing elements from those considered New European.  The two have many dissimilarities in their process and inspiration, but their work somehow intersects at a point, which led them to collaborate not only in a joint show, but in the execution of works of art as well.  If you wanted to label these works, you could call it landscape painting; a spontaneous, organic and fitting subject matter they showcase in X CROSS.

The plane we see into on the surface is a moment of tranquility and chaos, a meditation of the awe of man in the natural world. The beauty of landscape, a base for subject matter is the reflection of what is relative to a certain individual.

While Tonelli uses form, color and shape to influence the creation of a scene, Small uses images, whether it be his own or a historical documentation, to direct the flow of his work. Often starting using washes and drips of paint, Tonelli allows the medium to dictate action from the beginning and mechanically fills space with patterns, a perfect counterpart for the tedious carving that Small employs.  The two intersect at a point where they are bound to nothing but the aesthetic.

Monday night at Space 1026! Bill Daniel “Tri-X-Noise” – One night photo show with live music performed by the Baltimore String Felons!

poster for web

Hobo filmmaker, phototramp Bill Daniel is back on the road with a pop-up photo show comprised of 30 years of 35mm photographs beginning with the early 80s punk scene in Texas, featuring all of your favorite old school punk bands. Daniel has continued to document various sub cultures using the same camera/lens/flash and Kodak Tri-X film for over 30 years. This exhibit, all non-digital darkroom prints, charts a path starting with punk shows in Austin and crawls through various subcultures, from the 90s graffiti scene in San Francisco, freight hopping scenarios, art openings in Los Angeles, house shows in Louisiana, generator shows on the Monongahela River, etc… all seen through Daniel’s signature spelunker style flash-lit vision.

Please Pardon Our Appearance

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.
