Paul D'Agostino: Appearance Adrift in the Garden

Norte Maar is pleased to present Paul D’Agostino: Appearance Adrift in the Garden. This is the first one-person exhibition of the artist’s work and will feature new prints and collages in which color, time, and subject fade into and feed off of one another. New prints by Leslie Kerby and works on paper by Kai Vierstra will be featuring in the project room. The exhibition opens with a reception for the artists on February 3 from 6-9pm and will continue through March 4. The gallery at Norte Maar is open weekends 1-6pm and by appointment. For more information call 646-361-8512.

Paul D’Agostino is an artist who translates, severs, layers, wipes out and remakes images. His semantic abilities and linguistic fluidity are matched only by the variations in materials the artist uses to make work--work that is infused with an adrenaline, an intellectual rigor and a clarity that has made this artist an important one to watch. In this one-person show, the artist’s first, D’Agostino presents, along with new collage work, two recent sets of serialized monoprints in which image and repetition battle for recognition on a surface steadied by one’s ability to source a story and make sense in circumstance.

A new publication of writings by D’Agostino, printed as a literal and metaphorical appendage to the artwork and titled Bodies, Voids and a Tale of Seas, will accompany the exhibit. It features poetry in several languages, with translations provided, as well as a short story, AnchorsREAD MORE =>
