Winter Windows Joe Nanashe: Color Field Studies I, II and III Exhibition Dates: December 20, 2015 - January 10, 2016
Garis & Hahn is pleased to present Color Field Studies I, II and III
by Joe Nanashe, a three-channel video installation presented on
continuous loop from December 20, 2015 through January 10, 2016. This
exhibition is part of the Winter Windows program, a semi-annual series
of artist- and curator-led projects shown in the gallery's windows
during its seasonal closures. This is Nanashe's third exhibition with
Garis & Hahn and features his never-before-seen Color Field Studies.
Joe Nanashe's Color Field Studies I, II and III uniquely
combine minimalism, performance and video art. Presented on three,
continuously running monitors, Nanashe is seen repeatedly applying
various colors of paint to a wall, darting in and out of the frame as
the color of the surface shifts dramatically from white, yellow, red,
blue, black and back again. Speeding up the video enables the viewer to
witness the subtle color shifts that happen as the paint dries, going
from light to dark, from glossy wet to matte dry. Nanashe’s Color Field Studies are influenced by the performance video works of the 1970s and adapted for the attention span of a 21st Century audience.
Nanashe’s Color Field Studies
blends performance, video, and installation into works that confront
the viewer with issues of perception and the human body. The repetitive,
task-driven nature of Nanashe’s work is influenced by modern society’s
post-industrial landscape and emphasis on manual labor. Using video as
the medium for performance art, these works act as both documentation
and a version of manipulated output that cannot exist in reality. Taking
cues from art history, the work pushes the idea of video-based
performance further by adding a playful twist on “watching paint dry”.
About Winter Windows
Winter Windows extends Garis & Hahn’s program emphasizing
artist- and curator-led projects that further public engagement. This
will be the second edition of Winter Windows. Shown in the
gallery’s windows during its December/January break, past presentations
have proved a popular and unexpected opportunity for art viewing. Summer Windows is a continuation of this series during the gallery’s summer closure.
