Sunday, November 17, 2013Sunday, July 13, 2014

Epic in size, epic in content, Joseph Stashkevetch’s drawings assault one’s senses by their obsessive detail, incredible size, and links to civilizations past and present. The disintegrating towers in Ask the Dust might poke our recognition of a past life where civilization thrived, but look again and we might see it as an imaginary place influenced by an amalgamation of former cultures. In the seven lifelike drawings that comprise this exhibition, the artist critiques the questionable conclusion that modern times are an improvement from the past.

Cubism was the most revolutionary and influential movement of the twentieth century. After Renaissance artists perfected the device of perspective, a painting was thought of as a window into the world. But cubist painters understood that canvases themselves were painted objects. They also rejected the idea that an object rendered with traditional perspective was any more “real” than an abstraction of that object on the flat surface.
