Ryan Jennings Clark

The sculptural works of New york artist Ryan Jennings Clark, like Timeframe 1 (Compact), combine LCD screens, mirrors, light, and video, in this case, footage of the artist continuously painting a line—a meditation on depicting the infinite.

This is a repurposed compact with an LCD video player re-fitted into the top half of the hinged case. The case is propped open like a clamshell and the viewer watches the video as it is reflected into the mirror. The video shows the continuous painting of a horizontal line with vertical hashmarks. The mirror has the symbol of a line with endpoints and hashmarks etched into the surface. The mirror is framed by white plastic that is illuminated with filament bulbs. The sculpture rests on a piece of gloss black acrylic.


VIDEO: Matthew Ritchie’s 10 Possible Links

Matthew Ritchie’s Ten Possible Links” at Andrea Rosen Gallery in Chelsea features paintings, a wall drawing, a sculpture, and a film. Ritchie works with diagrams inspired by the work of philosopher Graham Harman, who he worked with for the past year and a half. 


“David Bowie Is” Documentary Scratches the Surface of Rock’s Cracked Actor

“You can see, here, how closely he controls every visual aspect of what he’s producing,” Broackes explains, pointing to Bowie’s hand-drawn concept art for the back of “Space Oddity” and noting how much it resembles the final product.


Highlights From EXPO Chicago

The third edition of EXPO Chicago brought a well-rounded and impressive roster of international galleries to the city’s Navy Pier, many of whom weren’t afraid to showcase difficult work. The booths were complemented by Independent Curators International executive director Renaud Proch’s companion program, In/Situ, which brought generally massive sculpture and installations into the space, including a looming tornado of colorful plastic cast-offs by Jessica Stockholder, and a reproduction of Iraq’s Ishtar Gate (using newspaper and commercial packaging) by Michael Rakowitz, who also had a large-scale installation with Chicago-based Rhona Hoffman.

5 Must-See Gallery Shows:

Kristen Schiele at Lu Magnus Gallery, through October 12 (55 Hester Street)

“It feels as modular and free as I can make it — lots of details, color, and textures,” says Kristen Schiele of the paintings, collages, and wall sculptures in her latest exhibition, “Spirit Girls.” Schiele — who recently gave birth to a baby girl — has created these works as a thought experiment, projecting the sort of environments her daughter might inhabit and encounter as she becomes a young adult. Overall, it’s a massive development of what the artist terms her “lo-fi punk vernacular,” with layered elements (silkscreen, airbrush, acrylic, oil, stamped pigment) combining to create vibrantly intricate vignettes.

Rebecca Warren at Matthew Marks Gallery, through October 25 (523 West 24th Street)

These painted-bronze sculptures elicit a strange mix of emotions, their phallic, distended Giacometti forms plumped with unexpected breasts and ornamented with pompoms. They’re both silly and noble, as are the hulking bronze rocks — lumpy and pattern-adorned — sitting on wheeled dollies. Warren mixes things up with a few more Minimalist pieces, like “You Are Quiet, I Will Be Too,” a steel, paper, and pompom wall sculpture that’s like an indecipherable sentence spelled out as a shelf.

Jason Rhoades at Zwirner Gallery, through October 18 (537 West 20th Street)

It seems like just yesterday that the Zwirner mini-empire invited a certain 20-something market darling to build a factory in one of their galleries, cranking out sugary candies along with a pervasive bad attitude. READ ON….

Fred Wilson at Pace Gallery, through October 18 (534 West 25th Street)

This array of conceptual work from 2004 through 2014 is punchy and pared-down, juggling a limited visual iconography (the design elements of African nations’ flags; bulbous blown-glass tear drops that appear to rain down the wall) and an almost entirely black-and-white tonal palette. “The Mete of the Muse,” 2006, pairs an “African” statue with a “European” one, mixing two very different visions of femininity, sexuality, and grace. 

Philippe Weisbecker at Zieher Smith & Horton, through October 4 (516 West 20th Street)

This show of intimate drawings, paintings, and sculptures at the newly rebranded gallery is full of tiny revelations. Scott Zieher, who met the French artist about a decade ago, describes Weisbecher’s complex appeal: He’s “deeply aware of Minimalism,” yet the work also has “the naivete of the opposite end of the emotional and conceptual spectrum in its vernacular, outsider feel.”
