Susan Bricker, “Dirty Balloons,” 2012, acrylic on wood panel, 16 X 20 inches
16 Wilson Avenue, 917-714-3813
July 6 - August 5, 2012
Reception: Friday, July 6, 6 - 9 PM
“Cut Up” presents 11 artists who shred, chop, clip, paste, and otherwise reconfigure a variety of materials to make collages, sculptures, and paintings. Their practice is protean and energetic, and the results are surprising, humorous, and poignant. The show aims to showcase a broad range of “attacks” on the art object, its surface, and its content. The fractured nature of identity is a subtext. Things are not what they seem.
Brooklyn-based painter Julie Torres is featured in the project space with a solo show entitled “Ghost in the Machine.”
