George Spica – Exhibition

GEORGE SPICA – Tue 26 July, 19.00-21.00 in the Freezer

TuesShowIMG

My name is George Spica, an American artist working in sculpture, installation, and performance. My work is concerned with the performative potential of the body, as well as, more recently, synthetic projections of that potential through geographical space. I find industry to be an incredibly beautiful and straightforward way of looking at the physical expressions, and desires, of the human body. By this notion, my practice aims to elucidate the romance present in mechanics and functional aesthetics by creating distilled, protracted experiences thereof.

Tuesday night’s show in the Nes Freezer (7-9pm) will be an installation comprising various sculptures and digital video projections, all works made during my time at the Nes Residency. Each work was made in relation to the next; the products of an ongoing practice exploring the romantic qualities of industrial materials. The pieces on display are, in a broad sense, material compositions belonging to many industrial and mechanical lineages brought into the context of a gallery for the sake of examining physical desire through objective analysis.

Current Artist in Residence – Leah Pantea

While here at NES, Leah Pantea has been enamored with paradoxes and has been exploring that concept in her work. She layers on thin wash-like layers of oil paint onto paper-creating a dynamic abstract landscape of geometric structures and organic forms, only to paint over everything with layers of white paint. This process allows shadows and hints of what was to peek through, causing the viewer to both imagine it full of marks and also entirely empty. Leah will be creating at NES through September, then continue home to San Diego, California. See more of her work at http://llpfineart.com/

Current Artist in Residence – Addoley Dzegede

ADDOLEY DZEGEDE is a Ghanaian-American interdisciplinary artist currently based in St Louis, Missouri. Her practice is idea-driven and mixed media, investigating notions of belonging, home, location and identity. Most recently, she has been interested in textile processes and is creating natural dyes from plant materials found in and around Skagaströnd.

 … Merete Røstad is an interdisciplinary artist, and has worked with farms in the area for particular photographs, her work is coming to a close at Nes, as she leaves this month. http://www.mereterostad.com/
