LIVINGSTON MANOR — Catskill Art Space is pleased to announce three solo exhibitions with work from Carter Hodgkin, Nene Humphrey and Jon Kline. The exhibitions will be on view in the ground floor galleries of Catskill Art Space, 48 Main Street, Livingston Manor, NY from March 25 through May 6, 2023. Exhibition hours are Friday and Saturday, 11am – 5pm, and Sunday 11am – 3pm. The three artists pull from interdisciplinary pursuits grounded in science to explore their respective artistic practices. Hodgkin draws on particle physics and forms in nature, creating code generated particle collisions to inform her painting. Humphrey’s installation, inspired by dreams, goes as far as to offer video of the amygdala filmed through a high-powered microscope at the LeDoux lab at New York University, where she is the artist-in-residence. Kline uses light sensitive paper to capture the sky at different times, closely attuned to place and shifts in light.
Carter Hodgkin, Visual Fields, connects digital technology and painting, utilizing conceptual and chance-based themes to create her mesmerizing work. In this series, the artist modifies code attune to gravity, exploring particulates’ descent and reverberations upwards. Hodgkin extracts a digital file of the collision, transforming the image into a mosaic, applying hand-painted paper squares onto painted canvas. The painting becomes a mediation between defining and dissolving the pictorial plane, evoking microscopic landscapes from outer space or the ocean depths. What emerges are paintings which reflect a tension between technology and handcraft, exploring a relationship between algorithmic data and the pictorial.
Nene Humphrey will present This Like a Dream Keeps Other Time, a series of video, sonic and performative works created in collaboration with jazz musicians Matana Roberts and Staar Busby, along with video designer Simon Harding. Together, the works create a tangible space that mirrors the ephemeral part of the brain where complex emotions are born. These works were inspired by a dream the artist had in which she was learning to sing from “choir ladies” at Plainview Baptist, her late husband’s family church in rural Georgia. The works investigate both the overlooked importance of dreaming to our psychological health and scientific research demonstrating that feelings of well-being and mood elevation are programmed biologically to surface with communal singing.
Jon Kline’s work explores the subtle language of natural light and time, working with both cameras and light sensitive paper. Each piece involves observing, measuring, recording, and comparing the color and intensity of the overhead sky at specific moments in time from one place and from multiple places on the globe. Employing both alternative and digital means, Kline’s photographic and film projects explore the primacy of light and temporality. Kline’s presentation at CAS will include two murals that record the sequential shift in the color and intensity of light at a specific moment in time at this latitude.
