CURRENT EXHIBITION

Amber Boardman
Regrowth
Now extended through October 21



Amber Boardman, Makeover Magic, 2017, Oil on canvas, 24H x 18W

Sandler Hudson Gallery is pleased to present the first strictly painting exhibition from Amber Boardman in Atlanta in over a decade.

Boardman’s works on canvas and paper contain the frightening and hilarious beauty secrets no women’s magazine will share—the un-sellable secrets: mistakes. Her painting style, inspired in part by the figurative works of Philip Guston, allows her subject matter to be humorous rather than tragic. 

The characters that people Boardman’s colorful canvases are caught in moments certainly shared by most, but usually not publicly. While a religious ritual aims at creating a community of worldly practice around the divine, here we find our secret rituals, those that create invisible, fragmented community, hours of meticulously applying spray-tan or bleaching hair. The invisible becomes apparent as the roots grow out: Regrowth.

Nor is the divine absent from the visual puns that create strong humor in Boardman’s work. Boardman describes the characters in her work as “‘artists’, who use makeup, spray tan, and plastic surgery as their art mediums”. The serious sentiment that is imbued in these characters allows dark humor to transcend both darkness and humor. These paintings celebrate the stumbling ways we attempt to commune with our nature—by dying, tanning, and chemically curling it. Henri Bergson defines the comic as “something mechanical encrusted on the living”. Boardman’s paintings give us the crust, in all its hilarity and grotesqueness. 

Boardman’s exhibition not only dwells in the realm of common practice on a conceptual level. She is also exploring a less strict understanding of the role of the exhibiting painter by inviting artists to meet her for one-on-one workshops during the span of her stay in Atlanta. Regrowth as a gallery show will be accompanied by several events around Atlanta, including an artist’s lecture at Georgia State University. A catalogue for the show will also be available. 

Amber Boardman (b. 1981 Portland, Maine) lives and works in Sydney, Australia where she is a PhD candidate at the University of New South Wales. She completed her MFA at the School of Visual Arts in New York, NY in 2009. Recent solo exhibitions include Chalk Horse, Sydney, Australia, Edwina Corlette Gallery, Brisbane, Australia and Ivy Brown Gallery with Art Pow Wow, New York, NY. Institutional collections include Artbank Australia, City of Sydney, and The Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia. She has been featured in Juxtapoz as well as many other publications.

IMPRESSIONS

Mark Leibert: REFLEX
Washes of color (squints of light), color seen through lids barely open, a view that represents only a portion of the landscape or portrait, but is not false.

Large portraits which seem fully realized in comparison to their abstract counterparts influence our understanding of the washes and dapples of color: surfaces that absorb/exude, that tangle with blankness/depth. Are these canvasses close-ups of some forgotten portrait, or all equal portions of an ill-defined whole?
We have been thrown into the search for completeness.

No cynicism. We should see the whole as it fades and the fragments as they yearn to keep the whole from fading. Here we have the opportunity to ask precisely what it is that we want whole. A return to what we understood/took for granted? Is that really more beautiful than what we might make out of the fragments of now? The stakes are high. The fragments are already fading. To see anew is our only chance.
- Sophie Whittemore

Reflex
a thing that is determined by and reproduces the essential features or qualities of something else

“He felt a dull pain in his chest—not exactly pain, but more like the difference in air pressure at the point where the material and the immaterial meet.”

Haruki Murakami, 1Q84

These paintings and works on paper explore the liminal space between the material and immaterial. Examining surface and interior, figuration and abstraction, the images present spaces both immersed with and emptied of subjects. Some of the figures seem almost ghostly, as though poised to appear or disappear, with the tain, or lusterless backing of the mirror, revealing them as little more than apparitions. These images simultaneously reflect the surfaces of the contemporary subject, public perception, self-projection, and yet by their nature are a document, something relegated to memory. 

My paintings and works on paper are inspired by the “snow” of empty television channels on CRT screens, “ruined” rolls of film, the process colors of imperfect Polaroids, glitchy VHS tapes, and the irregular application of photo emulsion. These partial or imperfect images, whether unrealized or deteriorating, have always captivated me. But above all else, they are inspired by my love of paint, and its unparalleled ability to reflect and playfully distort contemporary and historical visual culture. 

Mark Leibert was born and raised in Honolulu and now lives and works in Atlanta. His works explore an other-worldly space that spans abstraction and figuration. His practice includes painting, drawing, time-based works, photography, and installation. His paintings were selected for No. 58 of New American Paintings, the juried exhibition-in-print. He has taught at Anderson Ranch Arts Center, Georgia State University, Georgia Institute of Technology, and James Madison University. His work is in private and corporate collections, including High Museum of Art, Capital One, and The Ritz- Carlton, among others. He is a co-founder of Day & Night Projects, an Atlanta artist-run exhibition space. He received a BA from University of California, Berkeley and an MFA from Rochester Institute of Technology. Leibert is represented by Sandler Hudson Gallery.

 

IMPRESSIONS


P. Seth Thompson: Insufficient Data for an Image
Stare at P Seth Thompson’s glossy prints clustered together. There’s something in the streaks of color, the image resolution numbers, zoom on forgotten text usually hidden in the corner.
These are the undergarments of the internet, the bits and pieces meant to be hidden, avoided, eyes averted. We thought nothing was sacred (secret) anymore, yet we discover the internet’s shyness, its modesty. That which gives us information—so much that it is obscene, even it has private parts. The paradox feels victorious, and then sad.
We’re left to wonder whether information ever revealed truth, whether transparency ever meant anything other than pornography.

On View at Sandler Hudson Gallery through May 6
