Janus (2), 2011, two-channel HD video animation (no audio) from Barry Anderson on Vimeo.

Barry Anderson's enigmatic and captivating video installations are constructed worlds of rumination that deftly but subtley counter the cult of speed that frequently plagues our society. Experiencing his works, we must slow down, engage, and, ultimately, reflect upon that which is overlooked -- a process of discovery that is all too often absent or underemphasized in much of contemporary art today. --Elizabeth Dunbar, Curator, Arthouse Texas

ROLAND FISCHER @ Von Lintel Gallery

Facades on Paper III: Metropolitan Plaza, 2007, screenprint, part of suite of 8 prints, 35 x 25, edition of 100

German artist Roland Fischer opens exhibition of new works, titled Roland Fischer: New Facades at Von Lintel Gallery, New York, featuring Fischer's newest large-scale photographs of modern building facades.

Lyle Rexer writes of Roland's print in his book The Edge of Vision: The Rise of Abstraction in Photography:
. . . He carefully frames details of highly schematic building facades in such a way that they are read as patterned two-dimensional surfaces with only telltale hints of their physical origin. This schematizing emphasizes the relentlessly geometric, repetitive and regular character of the social and political worlds these buildings embody.
New prints show bold color and dynamic lines that seem to deny the strict structure of such facades, leaving one lost in pattern and separated from the physics of such existence.

Exhibition runs September 6 - October 8, 2011
