Regina Rex is very pleased to present a solo show of new work by Brooklyn artist Britta Deardorff at Bunker259. Drawing on intuition, symbolism, and innate graphic powers, Deardorff creates charged images in which archetypal iconography, text, and checkerboard patterns overlay and cultivate an aggressive physicality. Deardorff incorporates sawdust, clay, and sand into her paint to create an earthen rocky texture, an effect of naturalism which is then contradicted by a surface coating of saturated reds, fluorescent oranges, discordant fertile greens, whites and blacks. In combination with the recurrence of snakes, silhouetted hands, and spiky tendrils the sum effect is one of animus and an anxious mysticism.
Red Liar Paintings will open in coordination with Greenpoint Gallery night, Friday, September 12th, 7-10 pm. The show will also be open during Greenpoint Open Studios, October 3-5th, 2-6pm, and by appointment. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 347-460-7739 to schedule an appointment.
