ACFNY RECOMMENDS | EXHIBITION
GREGOR NEUERER VARIOUS TONES
SATURDAY, FEB 28 2015, 07:00 PM - 10:00 PM
Exhibition | February 28 - March 29th, 2015
The installation by Gregor Neuerer made specifically for Cathouse FUNeral is comprised of four large-scale, painted canvases. The work draws on selected photographic representation of the color Green in contemporary western culture and invokes the process of iconographic interplay between nature, body, and health (such as used in the health industry) reproduced in artificial visual environments in the public space (seen in billboards, advertisements).
Various Tones speaks about the color of Green both as an instrument of representation and manipulation. Blending the archaic idea of the garden with the representation of landscape and commercial color research, the work speaks about "here" and "there," as well as experience and projection.
The installation creates a multifarious experience drawing on layered and sometime contradictory associations. It creates a discourse on how color is used to influence both feelings and perception in everyday life through the cultural of understanding of color based on accrued historical and experiential levels.
