FOUND IN TRANSLATION

Peter Mallo

 

FRIDAY, APRIL 5TH -TUESDAY, APRIL 30TH 2019

 

GALLERY OPEN HOURS:   2 PM - 6 PM  OR BY APPOINTMENT

 

La Bodega Gallery is pleased to present FOUND IN TRANSLATION, a solo exhibition by Peter Mallo. This is the artist’s first solo exhibition at the gallery.

 

FOUND IN TRANSLATION is a group of works by Mallo that is based on the premise that iconic works of visual art may be translated by breaking the originals into their constituent parts, and treating them as raw material. The resulting works do not resemble the originals, neither do they contain the same trajectory of expression.

 

In describing the process of creating this series, Mallo states, “My works have taken for their starting point a single moment, a particular aspect or gesture, or the imagined passage of time, a place where my language overlaps with the language of the original. From that single point, my works find a new trajectory.” Mallo also considers these works to have been “translated” from the works of Western painting that have had the most influence over his vocabulary. “The works have a dual nature for me,” Mallo says. “On a conceptual level, the works strive to meet the premise of the possibility of translating an image, and the reciprocal nature of all images throughout the history of art. These works also reveal how and why the originals had such an effect on me, and through the process of their making, have become highly personal.”

 

This exhibition will also include a limited-edition book, also titled FOUND IN TRANSLATION. The first section comprises an essay on the possibility of translating an image, and it touches on themes of originality, ownership, and peeling away the layers of meaning of an iconic work. The second section contains cropped images of the paintings paired with iconic or historical text fragments that elucidate some part of how the works were conceived. Full color, 36 pages. Limited edition of 30 books. 

 

Peter Mallo was born in Rochester in 1979. He received his BFA from the College for Creative Studies, Detroit in 2001 and went on to earn an MFA from the School of Visual Arts, NYC in 2005. Since 2005, Mallo has designed and built frames at the Guggenheim Museum as Chief FrameMaker. His artwork has been exhibited extensively throughout the United States and internationally and is held in numerous private collections. Mallo lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.

Light


A Juried Exhibition, Brooklyn, NY,


 

DATE:   JUNE 26 - JULY 26, 2019  

 


440 Gallery, an artist-run space in Brooklyn, NY announces an open call for the 14th Annual Theme Show.

The topic for the 2019 national juried exhibition is LIGHT. We are interested in seeing interpretations of the theme as created by contemporary artists at all levels of professionalism and experience.

Whether we seek light as a physical object or observe it as a metaphysical presence, it is the play of light and shadow that uniquely informs our human vision. In simpler terms, light gives life; under certain circumstances light also facilitates destruction. Capturing light in visual terms has always been a crucial element in traditional painting.

With multi-media, installation, and conceptual-based artwork, light takes on an equally important role for the artist. 

 

SHOW US WHAT THE CONCEPT OF LIGHT MEANS TO YOU.

RONNY QUEVEDO - FIELD OF PLAY Press release

 

 

ON VIEW:     APRIL 12TH - MAY 11, 2019 


ARTIST TALK:  MAY 9TH   TIME: 7-9 PM


Field of play is an evolution of Quevedo’s work on sites  of play as a metaphor for the movement of people  caused by displacement and migration. The transplant   of athletes, boundary lines, team colors, monumental stadiums for spectacle and the competitive role of sport mimics the duality of diasporic experiences.
