"Black & White" at Craven Contemporary

Saturday March 20 - Sunday May 16

4 Fulling Lane Kent Barns Kent, CT

Craven Contemporary is excited to announce the opening of its new show “Black and White” on Saturday, March 20th.

“Black and White” is a group show of works exactly as its title suggests, works in a mix of mediums including video, painting, photography and prints which are either black or black and white.

The mainstay of the show is a video installation by Brian Bress. Bress is a Los Angeles based multi-media artist who describes himself as ‘coming to video with the agenda of a painter’. In this series of works Bress dresses up in costume - here as an astronaut - and films himself drawing on a glass screen in front of him. An interesting point to note is the artist cannot actually see what he is drawing because of the costume. The work is at once both humorous and incredibly captivating.

Another of the major works in the show is Warhol’s ‘Unititled 12, from For Meyer Shapiro’. This predominantly black work is a composition of Warhol’s most iconic subjects such as the Campbell’s Soup, Cow, Flowers, Brillo Box and Mona Lisa - all in one single work. It is quintessentially Warhol and a work that is in many museum collections including MoMA and the Met. To view the show online click HERE

"Observing shifting color and light in nature is an ecstatic experience for me. I find myself simultaneously excited and calm, a dynamic opposition I seek to generate in my work through the interplay of line and subtle gradients of color. In my current paintings, I use the boundaries between broad and narrow bands of adjacent colors to generate visual vibration. I am intrigued by the way the eye and brain process these transitions, informing the viewer’s emotional and physical responses."
