Ben Charles Weiner
Gel Monochrome Variation 3, 2016
18 × 18 in; 45.7 × 45.7 cm (paper size)
Archival pigment print
Edition of 20 + 2AP

By photographing paint and luxurious ephemera at close range, then using the resulting image as his subject, BEN CHARLES WEINER creates works that pose a confusion of object, subject and medium. Weiner’s paintings harness the idolatrous fetishistic desire of consumer culture, the fashion industry, and the art world. Thus, his paintings self-critically describe the duality of their own identity as both transcendent creation and commercial item. Likewise, all of the themes and references in the paintings reinforce their status as consumer/art objects. Roland Bathes’ application of Freud’s concept of “the uncanny” to landscape photography is the pertinent reference.

Weiner (b. 1980, Burlington, VT) received his BA from Wesleyan University (CT). He also studied under Mexican muralist José Lazcarro at Universidad de las Americas (Mexico) and has worked closely with artists Jeff Koons, Kim Sooja and Amy Yoes as an assistant. He has exhibited his work widely across the United States and in Mexico with solo shows in Los Angeles, New York and Puebla, and group exhibitions in Chicago, New York, Miami, New Haven, Ridgefield, Los Angeles and Riverside. His paintings can be found in the Sammlung/Collection (Germany), the Progressive Collection (OH), and the Frederick R. Weisman Foundation Collection (CA). The artist lives and works in New York City.

In Discussion: An Interview With Sculptor MEGHAN SMYTHE

MMFA has just posted a new “Art Talk” video interview with Meghan Smythe on the Mark Moore Fine Art YouTube Channel for your reference. The video was shot in her studio last month and shows a number of new work and works in progress in addition to those in our current ARTSY exhibition. This short and insightful chat with the artist can be view today at the following link:

In addition, Mark Moore Fine Art is very pleased to present an exclusive ARTSY online exhibition of award-winning sculptor Meghan Smythe titled “Recent Work”, which has been extended through this Sunday, October 21, 2018.

This exhibition can be viewed now at the following link:

https://www.artsy.net/show/mark-moore-fine-art-meghan-smythe-recent-work

Using a traditional sculptural format (the monument), Meghan Smythe captures contradicting extremes within human gesture: intimacy and brutality, beauty and ugliness, or the lewd and tender. In her attempt to achieve an “elegant vulgarity,” she encapsulates moments that define our mortality in unanticipated ways; oftentimes toeing the delicate line between erotic and macabre tendencies that give way to life, and ultimately death. Glass, ceramic, and concrete are woven together in an elaborate, orgy-like web of body parts and organic artifacts, as if suddenly cast with Pompeii-like circumstances. Like excavated antiquities or fossils, Smythe’s ceramic compositions allude to the cyclical nature of civilization – a dramedy in which all of the players are subject to conquest and demise.

Jason Salavon’s “Homage in Between (Chicago Art, 20th Century)” Debuts in Chicago 

Jason Salavon
Homage in Between   2018
Single-channel video, 6K resolution
243′ x 557′. 5m35s. Unique

Jason Salavon’s Homage in Between (Chicago Art, 20th Century) speaks to Chicago’s grand art and design histories as fluid streams of smaller events. This work was debuted Sept 29, 2018 to a live audience of 32,000 people.

Mart_2.720px

Image archives will be used to create poetic complexes of flowing visual history. Dense, organic matrices of images will flow over the surface of theMART. Reproductions of paintings, illustrations, photographs and other visual ephemera will serve as source particulate in an evocative visual symphony of forms.

This experimental projection-mapped video was commissioned by the Terra Foundation for the inauguration of Art on theMART.

The piece presents 5m35s of neural network-driven video exploring image_categories-as-continuous_spaces.  It begins sampling from Chicago art & design history (O’keeffe, Paschke, Marshall, etc) and ends with internet vernacular (cats, cheeseburgers, celebrity faces). The hope is to synthesize incredible work coming out of AI research into an independent, standalone artwork requiring little explanation.

New Limited Edition Works on Paper by Artist JOSHUA DILDINE

Mark Moore Fine Art is pleased to announce our partnership with Davis Editions to release three new limited edition works on paper by artist JOSHUA DILDINE to be released on August 1, 2018 that I currently can offer you in pre-publication as a special offer.

MMFA004-border
Joshua Dildine, Goofy Duck, 2018 / 30 x 24 inches (paper size) / Archival pigment print; Edition of 20 + 2AP

Merging found autobiographical photographs with viciously gestural painting, JOSHUA DILDINE confronts the subject of conventional recollection and familial structure. A fixation shared by society at large, the contemplation of past events and relationships ultimately shapes our psychology moving forward – as a flicker of nostalgia, shame, or glee can be activated by a single sensory cue. With a purposeful cognizance, Dildine mines these memories for the underlying traits that forge our shared humanity: the humor found in the compromising, the endearment found in the aggravating, or the conflict found in the absent. His painterly swaths are as visceral as the family photos they conceal, his vivid palette alluding to the glaring absurdity of our incessant self-analysis and contemplation of the past. In his most recent body of work, Dildine embellishes elements or patterns within the original image in order to create a farcical confrontation with the past – a perspective that is both critical and celebratory. Through this carefully disjointed lens, Dildine creates experiences that are at once present and bygone, and whimsically harnesses nature of our being.
