Truth or Consequences

May 15 – June 7, 2008

Marcy Brafman’s paintings deal with the dark and light of the cultural landscape and the nature of character. They reflect on the demons and deities of the memory as seen on our devices, online, on television, billboards, boxtops, catechisms, illustrated classic comic books, masterpieces in the Frick, old paperback covers, graffiti and signage on moving vehicles and packaging detritus of every shape and kind. Concern with brand identity as a genuine spiritual state plays a strong role in the work, an examination of painting as a mirror to internal and external states, individual and social intentions. Each painting represents a logo poem, a distillation of an array of ideas into a simple painted statement. Each one plays a character in a private cast alphabet.

532 Gallery Thomas Jaeckel and Curator David Gibson are pleased to announce an exhibition featuring two pioneer conceptual artists, David Askevold and Peter Hutchinson, who have established the connections between language, the found photographic moment; and an interaction with nature and the intricacies of the mind between actual and intellectual experience. Though Hutchinson has an ecologic sensibility and Askevold a metaphysical one, both of their oeuvres has added something distinct, useful, and inspired to the practice of Conceptualism.
