“Two on Two”
The Hole NYC
312 Bowery, New York, NY 10012
March 1 – April 3, 2016
The Hole will present two two-person exhibitions, titled “Two on Two,” during the month of March. Located in the main space will be Johnny Abrahams and Matt Mignanelli, while in Gallery 3 will be the duo Russel Tyler and Palma Blank.
All four of these incredible artists create abstract pieces that look at line and texture through geometric or optical shapes in a modern technology way. The diverse attributes of these artists stand out, whir their abstract genre allows their work to ebb and flow throughout The Hole. From Russel Tyler pitching paint balls of oil at his pieces to Palma’s taped-off winnowing of thick acrylic, the sphere of interest is shared but the details distinctive.
Johnny Abrahams and Matt Mignanelli both make mechanical looking canvasses with an exaggeratedly handmade paint job to explore process oriented painting. Palma Blank and Russel Tyler use texture and directionality to colorfully optic ends. The four artists offer unique takes on abstract art as we know it.
