Juxtapoz Magazine - Gregory Rick Highlights SFMOMA's 2022 SECA Art Award Exhibition

There is a vantage position on the mezzanine cafe at MoMA in NYC the place the bordering Midtown skyscrapers engulf you. There are levels and levels of grey concrete and glass windows that generate a form of blurring of your depth notion as to what is in the foreground and track record of your eye. When I past observed this illusion, I assumed of the operates of Daniel Abundant, who in his intricate method of layering and stripping absent on canvas effects in an incredible flat image of architectural complexity. He is flattening what is so rigidly substantive and heavy and thick. That is what will make his new clearly show, Flat Earth, so spectacular. 

And this is where by Wealthy starts his solo clearly show at Miles McEnery, among the modernist properties in Midtown Manhattan, nonetheless with a blazing sunset of a palette positioned on them. They are hypnotic and surreal, considerably extra abstract than his earlier function that made a sort of mimic of a skyline. This would seem extra akin to highlighting the attractiveness of the composition of modernism, how impenetrable it feels, how regular and long lasting the buildings are. As the gallery notes, “In this special contemporary instant, when just about anything could come about up coming, everyday road views and properties toe a tense line between banal and considerable. In his most recent physique of perform, Loaded expands on his a long time-long investigation into the techniques architecture bears witness to, reflects, and indicates fundamental political narratives.”

I go back to that expression and what it means to us now, how significantly it has evolved more than the past couple of many years: permanence. Prosperous paints as if the buildings we have established will previous permanently, only switching by way of our ability to alter all-around them. —Evan Pricco
