Opening reception on Saturday, 18 August 2012, 04:00pm - 06:00pm
In this show a photographer — Lucas Blalock; a painter — James Hyde; and sculptor — Fabienne Lasserre will present works, which contain circular forms and/or fragments. Rather than symbol, ideal or icon, these artists employ the circle in practical and practised ways. Within each of the individual works, arcs and/or circles interrupt the regularized formats (of photography, painting and sculpture) to embrace exchanges of meanings much as we all do within a circle of friends.
Lucas Blalock is a photographer who lives and works in Los Angeles. His work has been exhibited widely including a recent solo show at Ramiken Crucible (New York) as well as group shows at On Stellar Rays (New York) and Dan Devening Projects (Chicago). He has also authored two books of photographs: "I Believe You Liar" (2009) and "Towards a Warm Math" (2011).
Fabienne Lasserre grew up in Montreal, Canada, and lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. Recent solo shows include "For the Partner" (2011, Jeff Bailey Gallery, New York) and "What Is Found There" (2010, Gallery Diet, Miami). Her work has been included in group exhibitions such as "The Quebec Triennal 2011" at the Montreal Contemporary Art Museum, "Come Through" at Sikkema Jenkins & Co., New York, "Foreign Object" at Regina Rex, New York, and "Hace Mucho Que No te Veo" at Espacio Matucana 100, Santiago, Chile. She has an upcoming solo show at Gallery Diet this Fall.
