April 26 - June 9, 2012
Reception: Thursday, April 26, 6 - 9pm
Golden Gallery is excited to announce Sense and Sensibility, a two-person exhibition with Jessica Labatte and David Malek that highlights their respective relationships to color, value and opticality.
Jessica Labatte introduces a new series of cross-processed photographs of paper compositions. These photographs are without a naturalist representation of color as the chemical mistreatment of the film brings attention to anticipated, but unexpected, visual results.
Alternately, David Malek presents a series of gray to white hexagonal paintings that, executed with bands of specific tint, generate a general gradient, or modeled form. The colored bands shift at a rate that corresponds to Albert H. Munsell's color system, creating effects simultaneously eerie and equitable.
This exhibition situates both artists between previous solo exhibitions at Golden Gallery, Chicago and Spring 2012 solo exhibitions at Golden Gallery, New York.
