April 24 – May 17, 2015 [Extended!]
Curated by Wilson Duggan
ArtHelix is thrilled to present A.O., an exhibition of paintings by Christopher Stout—the artist’s second project with ArtHelix and his first solo at the gallery.
Best known for working with cement and shredded writing, this series marks somewhat of a material departure as many of the works are fashioned from fused plaster cylinders on museum panel.
Stout has said of this work: “A.O. is about the discovery of telling a visual story while not using the entirety of the painting’s surface. To accomplish this, I built structural environments within the works that would allow the dynamic to be carried by the internal lines and negative space. A.O. is about an edifice to prominence.”
Christopher Stout is the Founder of Bushwick Art Crit Group (BACG), Brooklyn NYC’s nonprofit art think tank. BACG is obsessed with understanding Contemporary Art through the lens of the art & artists in Bushwick.
A.O. is on view at ArtHelix April 24th – May 17th. ArtHelix will be open Friday April 24th from 12-6PM, after which gallery hours are 12-6PM on Saturdays and Sundays, and by appointment.
The Artist reception for A.O. is Friday, May 1 from 6-9PM.
For more information and images of A.O. please contact Wilson Duggan, Gallery Manager, or visit http://www.arthelix.com.
