Daniel Crews-Chubb

July 10 - August 14

Free
Two faces, crudely sketched and superimposed over each other, stare blankly. Splashes of color, ink, charcoal, sprayed paint all converge to create a chaotic backdrop, which is also seems to swallow the faces.

Daniel Crews-Chubb makes compelling works that employ a traditional expressionistic, painterly language amid a conceptual framework investigating the potency of the iconic image and the dramatic dynamism of historic and contemporary visual repetition. Contending with his primary influences of ethnographic art, ancient rituals, social media and Modernism’s artistic legacies, he creates organically progressive quasi-figurative paintings in series which rely on a group of constructed historic or mythic characters for the work’s narrative, but are primarily conduits for abstract mark making, in what Matthew Collings has called “a musical abstraction of textures and contrasting positive and negative space.”
