Dean Lent : 1.3 Megapixels – Dec. 16th


DEAN LENT:

1.3 Megapixels

OPENING RECEPTION: WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 16, 6-9PM
Dean Lent


At the November Group Show and Weekend Workshop, photographer Dean Lent won the drawing for a one-night solo show at Rogue Space.   

Dean Lent graduated UCLA film school where he co-directed and shot the punk cult film Border Radio with Allison Anders.  Since then he’s shot nearly 25 indie features including the Sundance darling Gas Food Lodging, the cult horror comedy Jack Frost, and Phat Girlz (starring Mo’Nique).  He’s recently been a segment shooter for the Emmy award winning Tyra Banks Show in New York.

While in New York (LA is still his home base) he started taking pictures of the city with his flip cell phone (1.3 megapixels) simply as a lark between shoots.  He began fiddling with the images in a basic free photo organizer with surprising results, then sharing them on facebook where the response from his friends and colleagues was singular: DO A SHOW!

Jane Gennaro – “Articulate Remains” – Oct 22 – Nov 14

GENNAROCOVER #1.jpg

ARTICULATE REMAINS:

RELIEFS, SCULPTURES, AND

ASSEMBLAGES BY JANE GENNARO

October 22-November 14, 2009

New York–Jane Gennaro will exhibit a survey of reliefs, sculptures and assemblages from the past seven years at Rogue House, from October 22-November 14, 2009. An opening reception will be held on Thursday October 22 from 6-8pm at the gallery, located at 526 W. 26th St., 9F. Gallery hours are 11am-6pm, Tuesday-Saturday. The exhibition will focus on two of Gennaro’s major series, which use insects, eggs and bones, as well as vintage handkerchiefs and illustrations.

Gennaro will be reading her monologue “Shaking the Goose Egg” eight times during the run of the exhibition. The monologue recounts her confrontation with a pair of wild geese which was the impetus for beginning the visual work on display. Reading schedule: Sunday Oct. 25 at 1pm, Friday Oct. 30 at 7pm, Saturday Oct. 31 at 3pm, Thursday Nov. 5 at 7pm, Friday Nov. 6 at 7pm, Saturday Nov. 7 at 3pm, Thursday Nov. 12 at 7pm, Friday Nov. 13 at 7pm.

The show’s title, Articulate Remains, refers to the artist giving voice to the objects that she finds in nature. Gennaro has written that, “The process begins with observation and culminates in storytelling….The impulse is to save these things and transform them into personal yet universal narratives that will seduce and disturb.”

Read show review from the M Mag.

Ellen Brous – “So You Think You Can Dance”, Oct 15th – 18th

IMG_8358.JPG

So You Think You Can Dance, is an installation that comments on art, architecture, high fashion, music and dance; examining the connection between the two worlds of fine art and pop culture.

Three motorized skirt sculptures, each reaching 10 feet high, evoke a graceful image of dancers in motion. The skirts, made from boning material used in dressmaking, create slivers of sensuous lines that appear to be drawn and placed into space. Hanging from mobile armatures at the ceiling each of the skirts nine tiers of boning is individually attached with invisible thread, inviting the viewers to touch and cause the skirts to undulate in an independent swing to the music.

The architecture of the narrow gallery space inspired the skirts in-line placement and led to choosing music representative of Irish Riverdance, a dance performed in a line and genres of music that enhance the fast paced, heart pumping strut of models queued on a fashion runway.

Ellen Brous holds a Bachelor of Arts from Queens College. She has exhibited in numerous museums and galleries in the New York City area and is a former teacher.

Theresa Byrnes, “Revolution Revolve”, March 19-April 1st.

REVOLUTION REVOLVE an exhibition by Theresa Byrnes March 19 – April 1, 2009
rogue space 509 W26th Street, Gallery 9E New York, New York 10001

The coin rolls towards the camera and executes a spinning drop onto the watercolor paper. Another plinks off on the floor. Theresa methodically wheels around her big watercolor paper circle made of circles, tossing and placing pennies, dollars, yen, lira, pesos.

From Byrnes’s two recent performance art pieces, a simulated oil spill (TRACE), then a meditation on what constitutes consciousness (Theresa Tree) to her latest paintings with circles, Byrnes deals in large abstractions, she calls this ‘Abstract Realism’. Circularity relates to boundaries, cells, repetition, life cycle and ‘boobs’ she joyously exclaims, “the first mammalian desire, the thirst for life”. Many of the circle works are paired, and have titles like ‘spooky boobs’, ‘mother monster’, or ‘boob spiral’. ‘It is the form we are first familiar with, from birth, our mother’s breast.’ Byrnes explains.

The ‘wish ponds’, large disks about the scale of DaVinci’s Proportions of Man, address the title of the show, ‘revolution – revolve’, evoking, as her works often do, geologic scenes; seas, rivers, bio-zones, the ice caps. Layers and layers of circle shapes and finally coins of all sizes and countries make up the larger circle, overlapping, just touching, enveloping. Over all, lakes and fractal ink creations are formed, and make patterns around the coins cast over the surface.

Watching a video (private viewing) of the process, I sense a prescient vision of President Obama tossing money onto a troubled world, trying to bring it back into balance, and consider Theresa’s words: “It is our duty…to contemplate and be hyperconscious of our patterns of behavior and belief.” “Life is to revolve, to repeat – but it is also to evolve, breakthrough & explode.” We are headed towards a revolution, a great turning of the world.

“In tossing the paper disks and than coins I became aware of the wish. I contemplate the coin, the planet and the maternal inside the physicality of painting, throwing to the wind, to chance, hoping for change and transcendence. The paradigm is dramatically shifting, to think within the boundaries of ownership and sale is narrow. The great circle is moving toward another way of existing, for what is a coin but a fickle disk.”

Lisa Troyano – May 31st – Solo Show

 

 

RogueSpace hosts the art of Lisa Troyano May 31st – June 1st.

Lisa is an emerging artist from Northern NJ. While she has been painting for most of her life she has just recently decided to sell some of her work. Her underground artwork has an organic and pleasant feel to it which makes it the perfect fit for any home/office décor.

You can find more about Lisa’s work at www.LisaTroyano.com

“You can’t be at the pole and the equator at the same time. You must choose your own line, as I hope to do, and it will probably be color.” – Vincent Van Gogh


“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.” – Pablo Picasso


“My opinion is that the best thing would be to work on till art lovers feel drawn toward it of their own accord, instead of having to praise or to explain it.” – Vincent Van Gogh

 


Travis Mong – May 9th – “Life, Love, Art.”

May 9th – May 10th, 2008


RogueSpace hosted the art of Travis Mong May 9th – May 10th for his exhibition entitled “Life, Love, Art.”

Mong’s current show is inspired by his wife, Tracey Calaghan, who was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2007. His exhibit is a fundraiser for cancer research.

Mong is an artist who seeks to take an active role in changing our environment and perceptions.

“First, I recognize that nothing changes or mutates without meeting resistance. Second, all things in nature are in a constant state of change, therefore meeting resistance. Third, anything that does not adapt fast enough to this change ceases to evolve along its lineage. And finally, nothing is created nor destroyed but only takes on a new form (when I speak of creating, I’m referring to the minds ability to rearrange existing forms into new ones).”

Travis studied under the tutorship of Haim Steinbach, Tim Rollins, Andrew Ginzel, and Joel Perlman at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. He aspires to improve the quality of life through his work by developing in the viewer an awareness of the paradoxical nature of existence.
