Andrea Schwartz Gallery is pleased to announce a two-person exhibition by Seamus Conley and Albert Dicruttalo. This exhibition will be on view from November 14 - December 21, 2018.
Paradise Syndrome is in keeping with Seamus Conley's traditionally fantastical style. Conley's artwork explores the intersection of fantasy and reality; he is interested in portraying the experience of daydreaming while simultaneously existing in the external world. In this body of work, Conley also examines artificial intelligence through portraiture.
For his newest body of work, Albert Dicruttalo has drawn inspiration from the rich tradition of modernist sculpture. He points to the purely formal elements of his sculptures in Telltale Signs and notes how they explore and emphasize spatial relationships that are both familiar and mysterious. This body of work continues to play with his ongoing interest in the interplay of contradictions: mysterious but familiar, interior and exterior, concave and complex, emotional but impassive.
