Chris Cosnowski

Might and Main
August 30 — September 29, 2018
Opening Reception: Thursday, August 30, 5:30-7:30 PM

Dolby Chadwick Gallery is delighted to present Chris Cosnowski’s Might and Main. Cosnowski continues his exploration of the conflicted soul of our pop culture. His toys, trophies, models and other Americana transport us into a world that’s both playful and haunting, sacred and silly, minimal and complex. In Might and Main, a phrase from the 12th century meaning with as much effort or strength as one can muster, many of Cosnowski’s figures are raising their fists in a gesture that speaks equally of assertion and desperation. A gesture that perfectly encapsulates our current situation.… read more

Elizabeth Fox

My Darling Clouds
August 30 — September 29, 2018
Opening Reception: Thursday, August 30, 5:30-7:30 PM

Dolby Chadwick Gallery is delighted to present Elizabeth Fox’s My Darling Clouds. Fox’s paintings are siren songs that live in a sphere somewhere between the subconscious and the magical. Her figures are often pale, ghostly, smoke & mirror, more shape than body. The world they move through is one that’s at once mundane—an office, a bus stop, a street with trash cans—and surreal: it’s as if Fox is squeezing the real out of reality, and what’s left is an etherealized version of strange, dream-like beauty.… read more

Derivations in Color
October 4 — 27, 2018
Opening Reception: Thursday, October 4, 5:30-7:30 PM

Dolby Chadwick Gallery is proud to present Matt Gonzalez’s new show Derivations in Color. Gonzalez’s collages are meditations on the nature of equilibrium. They create a balance between the ‘feeling and the syntax of things’ (to quote E.E.Cummings), between our sensuous, emotive experience of the world and the rational interpretation of it. Geometrical lines and figures form highly structured compositions that are so complex and self-contained that they look like living systems. But each of them is also suffused with a sumptuous color that exudes a nearly religious depth and simplicity. Balancing the two, Gonzalez creates an aesthetic equilibrium from which a subtle glow seems to emanate—like bioluminescence from a still, silent sea.… read more

Alex Kanevsky

Fin de Siècle
November 3 — December 1, 2018
Opening Reception: Saturday, November 3, 3:00-5:00 PM

Dolby Chadwick Gallery is pleased to announce Alex Kanevsky’s new show Fin de Siécle. Kanevsky is adamant that paintings can never be described by words because their language is fundamentally visual and not verbal. To him, paintings are not expressions of pre-conceived notions, ideas, or even thought processes; in fact, he believes that they resist any conceptualization—but what then is Kanevsky’s work about? If it is neither representational nor narrative nor symbolic, what is it that drives his vision?… read more
