Coffee Break: Artist Talks is our monthly event every second Saturday during exhibitions that pairs coffee and bagels with an artist talk.
Artist: Dan Schimmel, Painting/Collage
Hovering between painting, collage, and three-dimensional assemblage, Dan Schimmel’s work puts spatial position and diverse materials into motion. Through a visual oscillation between multiple perspectives and dynamic flecks of contrasting color, the intensely animated surface ricochets into an unstable state of anti-media. Mitochondriac is a constructed word that links the interior of the energy of the body’s living cells to the exterior world of disturbing physical forces. These lush tapestries mediate inside and outside, micro and macro, personal and social, referencing contemporary events (climate change, warfare, technology, cyborgs, ecocide) through the incorporated commercial packaging that provides each work’s title.
This artist is exhibiting in the Solo Series Fall 2017, on view from September 14 – November 11
