Ingredients for Humble Magic
Brandon Anschultz and Adam Farcus
May 21st – June 3rd, 2011
Brandon Anschultz’ work is generally founded in the fundamental tenets of formal painting – chromatics, substrate, composition, dimensionality, and presentation. He use these as a starting points to create paintings, objects and installations with various references to art-history, poetic ideas and loosely themed narratives. His practice is heavily based in material improvisation.
In his work, Adam Farcus uses existing cultural systems to construct experiences that question ideas of spirituality, joy, death, poetry, and the construction of self. His pieces in this exhibition utilize the languages of spiritual belief and poetics to transform the everyday into the fantastic. These pieces simultaneously elevate the banal to unexpected heights and place the magical in an accessible, even common, realm. In all of his work, Adam’s goal is to always do the most obvious thing in the most surprising way.
