Mitchell Wright | hard feelings

Mitchell Wright | hard feelings

Sardine is pleased to present "hard feelings" a solo exhibition by Mitchell Wright. The show opens Saturday, May 31 from 1 pm, with a reception that evening from 7-10 pm. It will be up through Sunday, June 29, 2014.

"hard feelings" features a group of Wright’s recent paintings that are not afraid to be read as romantic, beautiful or dark. Comprised of subdued color and repeated marks (both physical and suggested), they favor intimacy over grand gestures, but also imply monumentality, not in scale but in recollection. The artist’s hand is very present, but there’s still a distinct mystery to the way that they are produced and an open ambiguity. Like the work in the show titled, "i’m not here, but i was", they present a place where time and its contradictions are compressed; obsession and absence are both at play.

"When you can't stop thinking about something. When you completely forget the things that would be really good to remember. When you're reminded of these things out of the blue. When the past runs parallel to the present."

Mitchell Wright was born in Mississippi and lives and works in Brooklyn. His work has been exhibited with The University of Mississippi, Santa Barbara Contemporary Art Museum, VCU Fine Arts Gallery, Daily Operation, White Columns and Cinders Gallery.

Gabriel Hurier | DIRECTIONS

Gabriel Hurier | DIRECTIONS

SARDINE is pleased to announce Directions, the second solo exhibit by artist Gabriel Hurier. The show opens on Saturday, April 19 from 6 to 9pm and will be up through May 18, 2014.

Hurier’s first show at Sardine in 2012, DRIFT was a culmination of many years of travel, research, and collection of information- a figurative body of maps, scraps and sketches describing time apart from the familiar. With Directions, the work is still based on Hurier’s extensive travels and is now coupled with reflections related to his recent relocation to the Hudson Valley. The show will be anchored by a large-scale, site-specfic installation.

Gabriel Hurier was born in Cincinnati, Ohio and lives and works in Newburgh, New York. He studied painting and printmaking at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. He has participated in numerous group shows in the New York area including Gallery 128 and ATM Gallery, and has also shown in Chicago, San Diego, Cincinnati, Zagreb, and Singapore.
