OHWOW will be exhibiting David Benjamin Sherry’s recent work that studies concepts of geometry, science, color, materiality, and the course of change. This exhibition, titled Form Forming Formation, includes both traditional color prints and photographic collage work. Through the artist’s analog approach to producing images, he examines aspects of arrangement and the visual results of alchemical and light analysis. Opening Reception Saturday, April 30, 2011. All the deets after the jump…
6-9pm Saturday, April 30, 2011

With his photographically based constructions (Solar System In Blood System, 2011), Sherry explores specified geometric formations, based on the mathematical design of our planet and solar system. Also referencing crop circle phenomenon, these rectilinear configurations aim to address the varied changes Earth undergoes. The work also serves to chronicle this moment in history, and to raise awareness of the natural world around us, through a visual combination of minimal form and complex pattern.

Sherry’s series of highly saturated chromogenic prints, depicting expressive rock-like structures, continue the dialogue between object and interpretation. Sculptures painstakingly created over time, then later photographed as in Royal Ruin Ultramarine Umbilical Fiend Fallen Cobalt Core, 2011, provoke an explanation of how and why these seemingly figurative forms evolved into abstracted artifacts, and are now frozen in a moment. The anthropomorphic imagery deals with ideas of evolution and shift – the systematic process of alteration and the aesthetic conclusion of transformation.

These contrasting bodies of work create a tension between each other, while they simultaneously begin to draw parallels between Earth’s properties and human existence. Sherry not only uses photography as a documentation of fact, but also as an expression of an unknown future. Each monochromatic image is then both an examination and a certainty, questioning the genesis of how thoughts become reality and illustrating the result of that action into form.

David Benjamin Sherry is a New York-based artist, with a graduate degree from Yale University. This is his first solo exhibition with OHWOW. His work is shown nationally and abroad, including recent exhibitions at The Fireplace Project, East Hampton, NY; Aspen Art Museum, Aspen, CO; Garage Center for Contemporary Art, Moscow, Russia; and PS1/MOMA Contemporary Art Center, Long Island City, NY.

    If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.
