For July, Sardine is pleased to present a series of events on Saturday nights, beginning with Nothing Less, curated by Matthew F. Fisher.

curated by Matthew F. Fisher
Nothing Less features a collection of artists working in New York City who explore meditation through their process of drawing. From the white noise, all over compositions of Patrick Allen and Carrie Pollack, to the pure perfection of a single form by Denise Kupferschmidt and Michele Hemsoth, to Billy Malone’s active doodling contemplation on mundane detail and patterns, to the never ending, sparsely populated expanses of Matthew Kirk's panels, each artist knows by doing. Through the making of the marks, they harness a force of understanding and clarity particular to themselves.

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.
