'Second Nature' at Albany Aiport Gallery


On exhibit: 'Second Nature' at Albany Aiport Gallery
Exhibit explores responses to a world modified by impact of human activity

Words like ''natural'' and ''organic'' imply goodness by association. But the more they've become marketing buzzwords, the murkier their definitions have become. The exhibition statement for "Second Nature," now on display at the Albany International Airport Gallery, identifies the problem with such terms: they once signified things we humans "haven't manufactured or meddled with." Now, humans affect almost every aspect of nature through such things as global warming and genetic modification. The show's artists deal with nature, and the loaded terms we use to talk about it, in a multitude of ways.
Whimsy is the province of Roberly Bell, as well. Her brightly colored fiberglass forms resemble something out of a Dr. Seuss book. Bulging and bulbous, these figures sprout fake flowers or found objects in mutated still life vignettes. The objects she chooses — a china bird, a ceramic dog — underscore our fascination with manufactured representations of nature.

Dave Bown Award


PRESS RELEASE
15 July 2012

Dave Bown Projects is pleased to announce the results of the 4th Semiannual Competition, which was curated by Diane Mullin,  Senior Curator at the Weisman Art Museum; Ron Platt, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Birmingham Museum of Art; and Mónica Ramírez-Montagut, Curator at The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum from submissions that were received from artists from over 30 countries.

"It was an honor to be asked to jury this project. The variety of submissions was impressive, ranging from intimate figurative drawings to large-scale abstract paintings and from sculptural constructions to gallery-sized installation work. The creative impulse evident across the works was inspiring. I hope this important program will continue to grow and reach more artists in the future. It is a rare, generous, and much needed support for artists."
— Diane Mullin, Senior Curator at the Weisman Art Museum

Dave Bown Projects was founded in 2005. The initiatives of the privately held U.S. company focus on advancing the field of contemporary art by engaging in scholarly research, buying works of art, and providing unrestricted monetary awards to visual artists.
