    Four Women Dazzle in "Staring at the Sun" at Saltworks

    Review by Eric Hancock

    Published May 15, 2014

    The exhibition “Staring at the Sun” addresses the “death” and redemption of contemporary painting with a diverse selection of works by artists who use abstraction in interesting and invigorating ways. Curated by artist and Georgia State University professor Craig Drennen, the show borrows its title from a 2004 song of the same name by the smart indie band TV on the Radio.

    Staring at the Sun

    Review by Daniel A. Weiskopf

    Published May 11, 2014

    This exhibition, curated by Craig Drennen, features four painters who reconceive abstraction's relationship to the structure of the pictorial plane. Here the surface appears as a flattened spatial arena, a digital transparent layer, a supporting material structure, and finally as an obstacle to be overcome.

    Jun 7 - Aug 24, 2014

    Prisons, asylums and other correctional facilities are in constant evolution, ideologically, structurally and architecturally, encapsulating whole narrative structures of violence and resistance. How is a space of confinement produced? How can it be witnessed? In what way can it can be documented and visualised? The spatial syntax of a prison is a distorted mixture of fantasy and reality. The artists in the exhibition reflect on spaces of constraint, confinement, and containment.
