Rush Arts Gallery is thrilled to debut new works by Stan Squirewell in a solo exhibition AND GOD SAID Sept. 10th – Sept 19th with an opening reception Thursday, September 10th from 6-8pm. These works focus on creations that balance technology and organic, analytic and emotional, formulaic and humanness.
Squirewell’s works have moved into the third dimension including free-standing installations and mixed media wall sculptures. His background as a painter and photographer is evident through his use of composition, harmony, and balance. With the use of found materials, tubing, foam, geometric grids, wood, industrial paints and varnishes, he creates a new series of abstract works.
Many of these works are breaking the frame of traditional square formats. They engage with the space and invite visitors to interpret through our shared human experience. “All of this work is alive to me,” says Squirewell of these newly born creations.
In the past Squirewell’s paintings and photographs have explored themes of racism, classism, and masculinity as seen in his Carbon series. The new abstract forms venture outside of the artistic norm, they “do not embody the classic –isms of todays problems.” Taking influence from indigenous cultures, sacred geometry combined with binary coding, motherboards and Atari these new sacred objects focus on the spiritual sensibility connecting ancient and modern geometric patterns that have collided with organic forms.
Inspired by the sense of creation the exhibition AND GOD SAID reflects on the creation myth of the cosmos and the divine sense of childbirth and producing life. Squirewell’s seeks to bring together both male and female concepts and symbols, geometric structure and organic shapes. This exhibition is on view Sept. 10th – Sept 19th at Rush Arts Gallery, 526 W26th St #311, New York, NY a second reception and artist Q&A will be Wednesday Sept. 16th 6-8pm. The discussion with Stan Squirewell will be lead by Gallery Director Charlotte Mouquin starting at 6:30pm.
