THIS I KNOW + PAPER THIN + BLOCK PARTY
July 22 – September 3rd, 2016: JEREMY BROWN: This I Know + PATRICK HEAGNEY: Paper Thin + BLOCKHEAD: Block Party | ‘This I Know’ is Atlanta based artist Jeremy Brown’s follow up show to his debut solo exhibit last summer ‘LOVE MARKS THE SPOT’. With this new body of work, Brown strives to showcase his unconventional techniques, abstract use of materials and collection of thoughts by combining an urban aesthetic with solid bright colors, clean horizon-like stripes, layers, depth, abstract marking and the use of text.
‘Paper Thin’ is a solo exhibition in our Grey Gallery of Patrick Heagney’s photographic works on archival pigment print. Each of us actively creates our own reality based on data from our observations and experiences. These characters in the pictures have come up against versions of reality different from their own and must reevaluate their whole world view.
‘Block Party’ by Blockhead is inspired by artist Chris Skeene’s collection of Pez dispensers and blind box art toys such as KidRobot. Chris hand-carves and paints Blockhead sculptures and creates a variety of characters through the repetition of a singular form. He invites collaborators to bring their own styles to the blank canvas of a carved Blockhead and finds infinite possibilities when using these forms as his canvas and the possibilities in the imagination of others.
