CAROLYN BROWN 
– THE PAINTED TOMBS OF SWIFT

Carolyn Brown has photographed the world but her upcoming exhibition is entirely focused on Fort Worth, Texas. Brown was offered the chance to document the long-abandoned buildings formerly owned by Swift and Company, a meatpacking giant that dwindled and eventually closed in 1971. Following the trend of other unused urban storehouses, these are slated to undergo renovation to provide residences and office space. Brown’s show, entitled “The Painted Tombs of Swift”, is a meditation on the interim between a finished past and an unfurled future. The building shells are laced with graffiti. Broken windows seep with plant life. Water pools on the floor. Carolyn captures the nuance of the place with confidence, relying on the space’s ability to render rather than dramatic camera angles. A professional in a magic environment.

CHRIS MASON – HIGHER STATES

New York born artist Chris Mason is still trying to find peace. His upcoming exhibition, “Higher States”, is concocted of both the old and the new. Known for his wire climbers (wire wound into figures trekking upwards), Mason has opened his work up to include different methods of ascension: meditation. His tightly wound figures are charged with the energy that comes from searching the soul rather than disciplining the body. They sit in repose, finding harmony though the rigid wire they’re composed of is at odds with their lax position. It makes sense when he claims the figures of High Renaissance and comic books as influences. Paradox abounds. The climbers are here as well. Weighed down by gravity’s pull on their material, they are fixed on their way north. We begin to see traces of ourselves in these bodies; against all odds we hang on, intent on moving forward despite the challenges we face.

Anse de Grand Saline No. 3, oil on panel, 60″ x 50″
Peter Burega’s work is a tempest. He delivers large-scale, beautiful oil abstractions in a style that echoes harsh weather over an upset sea. These are not, however, mere renderings of a weather patterns. Burega focuses on building a complex, harmonic palette riddled with spits of contrasts and soft gradations. The end product may resemble a lightning storm but it is at variance with his final marks: a series of scored lines and a monochrome stripe. With all the wildness, there must be a way to rationalize; to step away and consider.

Soundtrack, vintage ephemera, oil and graphite on canvas, 39″ x 59″
Kelsey Irvin builds her mixed media collages from the bottom of a long forgotten drawer in your grandmother’s dresser. Maybe there’s a cracked vinyl, an elementary school primer, a yellowed magazine page. These items are cut and organized into scenes from yesteryear. A past that seems as warm as it is unattainable. An exercise in nostalgia through material and content.
