BRION NUDA ROSCH
November 21st, 2009 - January 2nd, 2010

Deconstructing or rearranging the commonplace, making new, jarring the viewer out of an object or photograph's sense of embedded context, Brion Nuda Rosch's sculptural works and collages make us better aware of what is the immediacy in our environments. Often simplifying the analogical process we bring to a work to understand it, by forcing the viewer into the very beginning nodal points of comparison via juxtaposition of disjunct objects in sculpture or found photographs in collage, the process reveals the more complex meanings inherent in these objects or environments.

"In many ways Rosch's approach to art is almost classical - navigating the tensions (that aren't easily swept under the carpet) between figures and landscapes, form and content. The room to maneuver in the tight spot where theory, and history of art collide with image making grows smaller and smaller every day, and so making compelling images that aren't weighed down by their own cleverness becomes more and more difficult." - Adam Mendelsohn
