SOLO 2017 Winners

Rudolf Lingens: "All that is solid melts into air."
Denise Driscoll: "Geometries of Inner Space"


Rudolf Lingens: "All that is solid melts into air."

This exhibition presents an immersive installation of recent and new works by Rudolf Lingens in his first solo show in a commercial gallery.

The gallery space is segmented into different areas. A boutique clothing store, displaying objects with pins expressing contradictory and paranoid messages, is opposite a gallery space exhibiting photographs depicting philosophical and scientific thought experiments.

In a library, a librarian digitizes books, or illegally pirates them. In an office, a whistleblower covertly collects shredded documents, or a businessperson shreds evidence of criminality.

A domestic space is being remodeled; the owners consider paint samples inspired by the deteriorating relationship between Los Angeles Lakers’ Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O’Neal during the 2004 NBA finals.

Each space evokes different private and public environments, presenting an ambiguous tableau, fraught with a tension between desire and possession.  The spaces and works are imbued with an ominous precarity, as environments and boundaries collapse into one another, and institutional decline coincides with privileged indulgence and psychological trauma.



Denise Driscoll: "Geometries of Inner Space"

In my paintings, colors are layered, and marks gather over repeating shapes. Paint is brushed, stamped, repelled, stenciled, masked, washed, sanded and dotted. My process explores the relationship of part to whole, individual to group, species to biosphere, galaxy to universe, and universe to multiverse as I move between personal, microscopic and macroscopic perspectives.

Physical experience intermingles with intangible ideas, world events, literature, memory, and dreams. Narratives spin, metaphors collide, emotions shift, and all is connected, each little piece to the other. Hopefully, these accumulations become thresholds for departure and return.
