Bert Green Fine Art announces two artists who have their first solo shows at the gallery. Robert Reynolds fashions large-scale sculptures which test the maxim that history repeats itself (as farce). Ancient and antique motifs act as signifiers for current political realities, proving that in human affairs, nothing ever really changes. Mary Woronov is a painter of allegorical emotional states; physicality and immediate sensual presence suffuse these paintings. Woronov has a keen eye for relationships that stand in for archetypes, a talent that she carries over from her other careers as an actress and author.
In the Project Windows, Megan Geckler premieres a project titled "Set a course for wayward schemes,” in which Geckler uses colored vinyl tapes and fluorescent light to optically alter space. The effect is kinetic and illusory, and the artist hopes to affect both pedestrians and motorists in the vicinity of the gallery; the measure of the success of the installation will be determined by any increase in fender-benders on Main Street. Richard Ankrom says of his “Untitled Tripod” “Film, television, and the computer monitor are the new canvases. Therefore red, blue and green, additive color, is the new color wheel. This is a homage to RGB.”
