Jesse Greenberg

January 10 - February 8, 2014

Opening Reception: Friday, January 10, 6-8pm 

 

The biological forms evoked by Greenberg’s wall works and small sculptures are as familiar as

they are discomforting. Composed of urethane resin and colored pigment, the works contain

percolating bubbles and a flowing alchemy, a painterly quality complimented by a palette that is

alternately seductive and repulsive. Greenberg says, “I’m witness to these bizarre fluid

moments, and though I’m making sculpture, my medium is liquids, and the membranes that

contain them.” His work reflects back to the post-minimalism of Eva Hesse and Lynda Benglis

and forward to the post-human future conjured by David Croenenberg and a new generation of

visual artists.
