September 22, 2017 - November 11, 2017

Event Navigation

Paradigm​ ​Gallery​ ​+​ ​Studio​ ​is​ ​pleased​ ​to​ ​present​ R​​ ise and​ ​Shine​,​ ​an​ ​exhibition​ ​of​ ​new​ ​works​ ​by​ ​Luke​ ​O’Sullivan,​ ​on​ ​view​ ​from​ ​September​ ​22​ ​- November​ ​11,​ ​2017.​ ​The​ ​show​ ​includes​ ​a​ ​series​ ​of​ ​6​ ​multicolor​ ​silkscreen​ ​prints​ ​and​ ​several new​ ​sculptures.

O’Sullivan​ ​creates​ ​invented​ ​buildings,​ ​places,​ ​and​ ​objects​ ​describing​ ​unexplored​ ​worlds conjuring​ ​a​ ​sense​ ​of​ ​discovery​ ​and​ ​adventure.​ ​​Rise​ ​and​ ​Shine​ ​​represents​ ​a​ ​shift​ ​from​ ​the​ ​artist’s earlier​ ​work​ ​featuring​ ​structures,​ ​facades,​ ​and​ ​panoramic​ ​landscapes​ ​toward​ ​a​ ​more​ ​detailed approach.​ ​These​ ​new​ ​works​ ​depict​ ​encapsulated,​ ​floating​ ​environments​ ​devoid​ ​of​ ​humans.​ ​The sculptural​ ​objects​ ​are​ ​keepsakes​ ​or​ ​relics​ ​from​ ​these​ ​faraway​ ​places.​ ​Each​ ​piece​ ​plays​ ​with​ ​the shifting​ ​relationships​ ​between​ ​two​ ​and​ ​three​ ​dimensions,​ ​surface​ ​and​ ​underworld.​ ​O’Sullivan’s recent​ ​screen​ ​prints​ ​introduce​ ​color,​ ​imbuing​ ​these​ ​works​ ​with​ ​a​ ​certain​ ​levity​ ​and​ ​illustrative quality.
