Damon Soule + Chris Mendoza in NYC

The Art Collectors was on hand this past Saturday for the opening of new solo shows (previously reported) by Damon Soule and Chris Mendoza, at Joshua Liner Gallery in New York City. Read on for lots of pics and a bit more about each show. Run until Nov. 15 at Joshua Liner Gallery, 548 W. 28th Street, 3rd Floor, NY, NY 10001.

Damon Soule - Amused Loon: ”…Soule depicts details from fantastic realms or geometrically abstract environments. Like screen “grabs” from a video game, these small views into otherworldly spaces explode with pattern, virtuosic manipulations of perspective, and lively colors. The carefully cropped details hint at larger dimensions and drama beyond the picture plane, heightening the feeling of optical tension. They also suggest a parallel with “virtual space” and the collective sensation in the Internet Age of worlds just beyond our fingertips.” 

Damon Soule and Josh Liner

Chris Mendoza - Daily Habits: “Comprised of twenty ink-on-handmade paper and carving-on-Masonite works, Daily Habits showcases Mendoza’s signature drawing practice, which builds up intricate images from fine mark-making. Evocative of both Mesoamerican hieroglyphs and Middle-Eastern calligraphy, Mendoza’s compositions have two registers—from a distance, they appear as delicate, lace-like landscapes; up close, they are an astonishing tangle of doodled shapes that resemble medical instruments, precision parts, space ships, radio towers, futuristic automobiles, and other assorted odds and ends of machined technology.”
