Griffin Goodman’s Etch-A-Sketch #7 is part of I’m A Rubber Chicken, Watch Me Fly.

Familiar objects from the heyday of prop comedy such as chattering teeth, rubber chickens, and the iconic glasses made famous by Groucho Marx make regular appearances in the artist’s newest paintings. They are re-contextualized to create a language of their own. Goodman distills and remixes these references in equally humorous and sincere ways, addressing issues of anxiety, isolation, desire, masculinity, and the role of the visual artist today.

Visit our website or Vimeo page to see more of the exhibition and learn about Griffin and his practice, or come by the gallery!

We are open today until 6pm.

We are pleased to announce Daniel Shea’s participation in the U.S. Pavilion at this year’s Venice Architecture Biennial!

The exhibition, American Framing, co-curated by Paul Andersen and Paul Preissner, opens today and runs through November 21, 2021.

From Curator Paul Preissner:

‘Daniel Shea presents a world of construction and the forest, blurring fact and fiction. The trees and bird could have come from anywhere (and do), while layered photographs explore social aspects of work. The series takes the form of a clearly depicted list of things: trees, wood, forest, a bird in a park in a city, a hammer, etc. The pictures combine various wooded scenes in North America with images of construction sites and other human-built environments. They destabilize expectations about American culture through meditations on its myths.’

Robert Burnier’s Kapvestaĵo, now on view at Frieze NY Viewing Room. Follow the link in our bio to sign-up and view our presentation before the fair closes on Friday.

ROBERT BURNIER’s new wall-based works continue his practice of folding, bending and crushing aluminum to reach new plateaus of transformation. For the artist, each form is an expression, but also a history. These uniquely formed objects are altered further by color that revisits and revises his preceding choices. For these newest works, his palette is inspired by ancient ceramics in Africa and Mesopotamia, sourced and interpreted as Burnier reports, ‘not from nostalgia but an appreciation of difference that might be as far removed from now as the distant future is.’ We present a series of his new wall sculptures for Frieze NY 2021.

To learn more about the other artists included in our presentation, visit our website.

We are currently open by-appointment for viewings of Zachary Buchner's solo exhibition Various Agents. If you would like to view the works included in our Frieze presentation in person, please email us to schedule your appointment.
