Daniel Faria Gallery is pleased to be participating in
The Armory Show 2018
March 8 – 11, 2018
Jennifer Rose Scriarrino
Daniel Faria Gallery is pleased to present a thematic presentation that interweaves works by Douglas Coupland, Kristine Moran, Jennifer Rose Sciarrino and Allyson Vieira for The Armory Show 2018. Each artist quotes and salvages everyday materials that drift, wash-up and gather. Once assembled into sculpture, or referred to through painting, these objects offer signs of a changing, turbulent world.
Douglas Coupland has often gone beach combing and assisted in efforts to relieve sites in Canada affected by Tsunamis and oil spills. Coupland collects items that have washed up along the shore as a result of extreme weather to compose hutches, chests and totems – containers that hold a myriad of histories: natural disasters, class division and radical politics.
Since the 2016 U.S. elections, Kristine Moran has turned her brushes and mindset towards escapism and survival: how will one jump ship? Abandon the island? Endure? Moran has recently taken up swimming as a form of meditation and preparation. Like repeating swim strokes, Moran’s new paintings picture swimmers moving through and away into the unknown.
Underlying Jennifer Rose Sciarrino’s recent work is an awareness connected to the experimentation being performed on living organisms. Sciarrino has created hand blown glass ellipsoid shapes, based on microscopic views of pollen grains and has reimagined them to possess the potential to flower into hybrid plants.
Allyson Vieira is sensitive to the dualities that complicate large contemporary cities: demolition and construction, waste and newness, gentrification and displacement. Vieira’s Blocks series are composed of concrete and urban construction debris. Strangely, these objects appear as relics of the future— promises already un-kept.
