Joe Wardwell’s “If You Got the Money Honey” is currently on view at ‘s “Wordplay”.

“This work presents a view towards downtown Boston from Wardwell’s studio, located in Dorchester’s Uphams Corner.

The next exhibition we will be featuring for our 15 shows for 15 years campaign is…

Big Disgrace - 2012 - Joe Wardwell

In “Big Disgrace,” Wardwell creates paintings sourced from images of the Pacific Northwest and New England and brings attention to how landscape painting and our understanding of landscape has been historically linked to a defining of national identity in the United States. Wardwell inserts text taken from lyrics of rock songs from classic bands such as The Doors, The Damned, and Nirvana which when stripped of their original context, portray an alternative American cultural consciousness. “Wardwell’s text makes demands on us. How dare we be proprietary about the land’s beauty… without being responsible for its care?” - Cate McQuaid, 2012, The Boston Globe

1 - “Big Disgrace” 2012, oil on canvas, 30 x 40 in

Sunny Today - 2011 - Michael Wetzel

In Wetzel’s first solo show in Boston, the artist employs symbols of luxury and privilege in his paintings, referencing 17th century Dutch still life vanitas that remind us of our own mortality and the transience of earthly pleasures. “With this show I’ve continued my interest in the decadence of our culture and our desire to validate our existence through abundance… I am both host and spectator, at once providing the unending flow of champagne while also commenting on social structures that allow for entitlement.” - Michael Wetzel.

The next exhibition we will be featuring for our 15 shows for 15 years campaign is…

Trapped Under Nice - 2011 - Daniel Heidkamp

“Trapped Under Nice” is a menagerie of painted portraits and interiors with an emphasis placed on articulating the personality of the subject, an atmospheric quality of light, as well the type and arrangement of objects within a space. The title, Trapped Under Nice” points to the slippery relationship between the illusion of subject matter and the actuality of the painted surface.
Heidkamp inserts passages of multicolored swirling paint against flat matte planes. “I am celebrating and exploiting the range of the medium and relishing in the simple beauty of the pigments” - David Heidkamp.

1 - “Who’s That Swirl?” 2011, oil on canvas 18 x 14in

2 - “Copycat” 2011, oil on wood panel, 20 x 16in

"Why heroes die at sunrise
Why the birds are arrows of the wise
Why each perfumed flower
Why each moment has its hour
It's you
It's all true
Stranger than that we're alive"
- Jobʼs Tears, Incredible String Band

The next exhibition we will be featuring for our 15 shows for 15 years campaign is…

Jonas Wood - 2010 - Jonas Wood

This exhibition was Wood’s first solo exhibition in Boston, his home town. Jonas Wood’s paintings of contemporary American life blur the boundaries of figuration and abstraction. His immediate surroundings are his subjects, building an ever-expanding documentary of personal memories and interests: family and friends, domestic or studio spaces, tabletop arrangements of ceramic vessels and plants, and landscapes, all painted through the prism of his memory.

1 - “Backyard Barn” 2010, oil on linen, 48 x 60 in

2 - “Oil Can” 2010, oil on canvas, 36 x 24 in

3 - “Bathroom Hallway” 2010, oil on linen, 52 x 57 in

06/29/2022

“The back-and-forth translation from digital to analog has a way of making the familiar and pedestrian feel strange and mysterious. There is an attempt to fall in love with, and get lost in all of the small moments of the paintings while also choreographing the parts into a clunky, overloaded, but unified ‘whole.’ I want to create paintings that give you this sort of simultaneous, multiple awareness of the image, the object, and your own process of perception as you encounter the work.”
- Sean Downey about “Why Each Perfumed Flower,” now on view until July 30!

Journey into Whatever - 2009 - Brad Phillips

Brad Phillips creates a visual diary with “Journey into Whatever.” Brad Phillips takes images from everyday life and uses the familiarity of these circumstances to thread together this seemingly personal narrative. Instead of giving us the whole story on each canvas, Philips maintains a level of obfuscation: revealing perhaps the ‘what’ and the ‘where’ of the story line, but leaving the ‘who’ ‘why’ and ‘what for’ open-ended.

Casual Luxury - 2009 - Alex da Corte

Casual Luxury incorporates found nic nacs, plants and food in sculptures that embody the American middle-class attempt at exoticizing the home. Da Corte eroticizes the everyday objects through his continual use of dripping his material and suggestive sculptural forms. The exhibition “call to mind a familiar mise-en-scène, that taking place in the furnished basements of teenage America, the underworld inhabited by high school slackers from uninspiring suburbs.” - Sam McKinniss, 2009, Big Red & Shiny.

The next exhibition we will be featuring for our 15 shows for 15 years campaign is…

I Make My Own Luck - 2008 - Jacques Louis Vidal

Vidal’s exhibition includes pen drawings, sculptural assemblages, and collages of internet found photographs. The work deals with resiliency of an idea or object, as the most important part of its success. The artist mines the wells of superstition; pulling from a culture of gambling, romance, and entrepreneurship. Vidal illustrates the humorous and heroic attempts to connect to the world around us through sturdy objects and works on paper. “It’s hectic, sloppy, and yet consistently, impressive show full of black humor, hard-hearted obsession, brazen absurdity and occasional outbreaks of virtuosity.” - Sebastian Smee, 2008, The Boston Globe.

Gil Blank - 2008 - Gil Blank

Gil Blank’s self-titled exhibition features digitally scanned photographs that are superimposed on solid backgrounds. Without the conventional idea of a series in mind, the photographs range in subject from fireworks to typographic signs of city names. “The natural proliferation of photographic images, though — their force in numbers — can’t and shouldn’t be simply ignored, so the question remains how we might leverage that multiplicity in a way that affords the creation of new meanings and possibilities.” - Gil Blank, 2016, Lavalette Studio
