Month of Photography exhibit @ RULE Gallery

RULE Gallery
(inside Hinterland)
3254 Walnut St
Denver, CO 80216

Exhibition: Confected
Opening 27 March

As part of Month of Photography Denver 2015, RULE Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition of work by Jason DeMarte entitled Confected. The show will open with a public reception on Friday, March 27, 2014 from 6-9pm and will be on view March 27 – May 9, 2015.

Confected examines our cultural tendency to idealize the natural world while continually trying to improve upon it. DeMarte explores the veneer of material desire and constructed natural beauty by composing fictional tableaus that speak to our obsession with beauty, perfection and excess. Meanwhile, underneath the bright colors is an oppressive sense of disenchantment. By “improving” on the natural elements with lighting and post processing, nature becomes just another commercial good, victim to our materials desires. Carefully arranged, and then “sweetened” with sugary items and bright primary colors, DeMarte’s confections are indulgent treats that play with the boundary between the contrived and the natural. In the end the pieces mimic a consumer economy screaming for our attention and demanding that we desire more.

Currently on View:

RULE Gallery will be open for First Friday March 7, on view will be String Theory, a two person show featuring new work by RMCAD Graduate and New York artist Matthew Larson alongside respected Colorado artist Clark Richert.
String Theory will be on view until March 21, 2015.

Plinth Gallery begins 2015 with Peter Pincus

Plinth Gallery
3520 Brighton Blvd
Denver, CO 80216

Plinth Gallery is pleased to inaugurate our 2015 exhibition schedule with the colorful ceramic work of Peter Pincus. His highly decorative ceramic vessels are studies in both color and form. The pieces in this exhibition are all made in a relationship to the color or composition of what he refers to as a “partner piece.” Using colored clays and mold making techniques, Pincus deftly crafts highly decorative wares that are “three dimensional paintings out of pots.” He combines hard edge color combinations that effortlessly float on the surfaces of his ceramic forms. He uses the vessel form as a canvas: pattern and symmetry occupy the surface and articulate the structure of his forms. His ceramics are opulent, full of color and either richly presented with a covering of clear glaze, or left unglazed, with those sections lush and soft to the touch, deeply saturated with ceramic pigment that permeates through the entire piece. 

Peter Pincus’ exhibition “Accomplice” will continue with a second opening on First Friday, March 6th from 6pm-9pm. The work will be on display through March 28th.
