NYSS Projects @ Dumbo: Orderly Chaos Exhibition
December 21, 2022 · Exhibitions, NYSS in DUMBO
January 5 – February 11, 2023
Curated by Yiting Zhao
NYSS Projects@ DUMBO is pleased to present Orderly Chaos, a group exhibition curated by Artist-in-Residence Yiting Zhao feauring the work of sixteen painters. The works selected are painted from observation in a practice of painting that, as one artist observes, is “like putting in order the chaos in front of the painter.” The works in Orderly Chaos emphasize color, form, texture, surface, and other formal elements that indicate the experience of working from life. The visual languages specific to each artist’s own experience of connecting and interacting with the world evidence the painters’ constant search of their surroundings. Working from observation is a direct language shuttling between the real and the painted world, the three-dimensional and two-dimensional. The infinite possibilities of the painted world deeply resonate with both the painter and viewer recasting our surroundings anew. Orderly Chaos features works by Jack Albrittain, Kayla Edmonston, Tristen Demmett, Keith Pfeiffer, Stephanie Pierce, Abigail Dudley, Sarah D’Ambrosia, Silas Borsos, Ying Li, Nora Cohen, Diana Horowitz, Edmond Praybe, Peter Foster, Hong Yang, Sam Levy, Jemeelah Thompson.
