JULY 16 – OCTOBER 16, 2018
HELL’S KITCHEN 

Diana Copperwhite, Ian Hughes, Danny Rolph, Gustavo Acosta, Jose Vincench, Rime

In her paintings, Diana Copperwhite plays with rich layers of light and color in a conceptual exploration of memory and abstraction. She creates a new fluid visual quality of dreamlike and transitory images.

Danny Rolph’s compositions construct their grammar of signs through material engagement and unprincipled investigations into the history of the ‘pictorial’.

Gustavo Acosta creates intensely hued portrayals of urban and natural landscapes, with rectilinear overlays of colors that integrate allusions to the ideal planned-city street grid, sharp-edged Bauhaus aesthetic, and small flashes of vitality and inspiration.

Ian Hughes’s canvases engage in a game of illusions and naturalistic forms shape-shifting on top of a flat color-space, searching for a linkage between brain and viscera, forming a kind of connective tissue with the viewer.

Jose Vincench uses the most socially valuable and significant of materials to make expressive assertions, as an abstract artist and autonomous individual in subliminal defiance of a materialistic society.

RIME finds himself engaged in a performative process — his energetic movements comprise traces of the iconographic, cartoon-styled figures, ribbons of color and light filter, flawless brushtrokes.
