Review: Sze Tsung Leong at Yossi Milo Gallery

Posted By Administration, Thursday, July 17, 2014
Sze Tsung Leong Horizons exhibition in Photograph Magazine

Sze Tsung Leong's Horizon's exhibition marks the Mexican-born, British-American artist's forth show at Yossi Milo Gallery.  Anyone self-described this way must be a child of the world.  Indeed Leong has a way of defining and unifying place.  He sets the horizon line of all views- landscapes and cityscapes- in the lower third of our field of sight.  This plane is kept constant through all the images, and when on exhibition our eye floats from image to image as though there were no frame.  Places don't only touch they begin to overlay and even confuse as we find harmonizing elements like shapes or tones in the works that make our eye's transition even more seamless.  Triangles, for example, form a pattern when Meoto Iwa, Futami; Dashur; and Salar de Uyuni I are seen side by side (follow Yossi Milo Gallery link below to view).  Cityscapes too begin to look alike- a series of rooftops and alleyways blend one into the next.  Even man and nature can stand in for each other- bathing figures in Sangam II, Allahabad begin to look like the buildings in Canale della Giudecca I, Venezia, as both figure and structure can be reduced to dots of color on a neutral horizon.  

While places seem to co-mingle and elude any sense of singularity, we will find that if we do stop to enjoy one frame it is a clean and direct description.  It is rooted and it is precise.  Having experiencing the work as a group of images we can never forget that each belongs in one way to the other, and we begin to feel the work functioning on another level.  It represents interconnectivity and reminds man, as Jordan G. Teicher says, that people ". . . have as much power to shape the landscape as nature itself," but man as an individual is also seen as miniscule.  Another of Leong's images of a man "stooped over the banks of the Ganges," poignantly suggests that man can be easily "lost in the foggy expanse" of nature (Teicher).

Artist's Opening Reception: David Goldes at Yossi Milo Gallery

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, January 29, 2014

Electro-graphs

 

Exhibition Dates:  January 30 - March 8, 2014

 

Artist's Opening Reception:

Friday, January 31

6:00 - 8:00 pm

 

The work of David Goldes melds science and art, technology and history.  In this his forth solo show with the gallery Goldes presents his Electro-graph series of graphite drawings and photographs.  Works are based on scientific electrical experiments.  The series was sparked by a fascination of pioneering experiments done by Humphry Davy and Michael Faraday that were conducted before the invention of photography; Goldes, who has an MFA in Photography from the Visual Studies Workshop at SUNY Buffalo, an MA in Molecular Genetics from Harvard University, and a BA in Biology and chemistry from SUNY Buffalo, was curious to investigate drawings made of Davy and Faraday's experiments.  With the use of household items like notebook paper, water glasses, razor blades, and scotch tape, Goldes attempts to verify and recreate these early experiments.  What results are magical, mystical frames that have a strong sense of geometry and line and speak to human curiosity and innovation.  Goldes makes the electrical current he experiments with visible; he applies charge to graphite drawings, causes the element to travel through water, or shimmer on thread.  Photographs are made of these investigations.  

 

These works speak as much to scientific history as art history.  A particularly special image, Charged Threads Tied at Both Ends, is a lovely arching series of strings confined in a box.  These easily connect to the scientific experiments, but for some may go further to formally reference some of the late work of Jasper Johns that also employ arching thread or twine.

 

Advanced concepts of technology are raised and their conflict with such rudimentary materials is what makes the work exciting and fresh, as if we the viewers are on our own quest for knowledge.  We also experience a collapse of time and consider the distance we have come since these early experiments.
