Bill Abdale
Copyright: Marvelli Gallery, 2009
Excerpt: The control of information confers power. Coded messages are used in the sevice of motives of variable moral certainty. An advertising agency serves the same purpose as a propaganda machine: to render products desirable to consumers, whether the products are goods or ideologies. On the other hand, alchemy, and underground punk music enact a subversove empowerment through concealment.
Skyler Brickley: Wall to Wall
Copyright: Marvelli Gallery, 2010
Excerpt: After working with billboard fragments, adhesive vinyl prints, and the ruins of other discarded large-scale print media, Brickley has returned to a more systematic painting practice to re-examine his interest in digital space. One of the mainstays of digital technology is that it assumes the possibility of repetition without breakdown. If something can be coded digitally, it can be replicated perfectly, and infinitely.
John Finneran: If I Had My Way in This World
Copyright: Marvelli Gallery, 2011
Excerpt: Sentimentality has its pejorative sense and against all detractors of the acute, limpid powers of sentimentality, John paints the signs that are elemental and/or fundamental to personhood. The forms and characters he uses speak of the things we learned first in life: the early nouns, the early objects, the most ductile metaphors. Garbage cans become the stuff that myth is made of.
