Jerry Birchfield’s practice revolves around the question of how images emulate or subvert the sources from which they came. Through complex photographic and sculptural processes, his works go through various stages of transformation, from surrogate to self-reference. The making of meaning is synonymous with the search for the beginning and the end.
Scott Olson’s abstract paintings conceal the deliberate decisions and elaborate processes used in their making. By employing a broad range of techniques and materials, Olson traces the history of painting back to the early Renaissance. At the same time, through subtle shifts and the gradual introduction of new methods and concepts, his small-scale works re-examine many of the medium’s long-established boundaries.
In addition to the two exhibitions, on Sat, 9/9, see a performance, installation and audio piece at the Transformer Station from artists Liz Roberts and Henry Ross titled Death Knell. Death Knell frames the codependency of process and product by showing a vehicle’s remains with documentation of its dismantling recorded on hundreds of contact microphones.
