Kaeley creates small-scale impasto paintings that allude to the idea of painting mediated through digital technologies. Whilst his work is clearly adopting the conventions of painting, their process of being made draws attention to the relationship between sculpture and painting. Kaeley chooses not to title the works but simply to refer to the media itself as a label, drawing attention to the materiality and process of the works in a way that revisits Modernism’s media-specific concerns, whilst disrupting this value by asserting the aesthetics of digital production.
RARE Gallery is pleased to present On Entry, Christine Gray‘s second solo exhibition at the gallery. Comprised of new paintings and works on paper, the show runs from January 3 through February 7, with an opening night reception on Thursday, January 10.
While traversing the hinterlands of France, Iceland, Scotland, and Spain, Gray drew inspiration from the recumbent stone circles and ancient architecture of early civilizations that punctuate the countryside. Contemplating whether these sites possess a resonance of spiritual significance or are merely historic ruins, she explores the slow histories and quasi-permanence of rune stones, etched bark, meteorites, stone walls and circles, and other archaic artifacts and monuments.
