Key Projects is pleased to present Keyed Up In Bushwick, an exhibit featuring work by Vincent Como, Sara Russell Dewey, Steve Karlik and Alex Paik. Keyed Up in Bushwick brings together multiple dualities, which coexist peacefully or confidently between the artists’ works: weightless and heavy, airy and solid, sturdy and soft, small and large, monochrome and multicolored, monumental and modest, abstract and conceptual.
Working with the precedents of the monochrome painting, Vincent Como deliberately obstructs the surfaces of his paintings by stacking, burning or collapsing his pristine work, resulting in unfulfilled potential or future potential. Sara Russell Dewey’s small-scale glazed ceramics seem dense and solid belying their true lightness. The tension created by the angling and tilting of Steve Karlik’s metal paintings teeter on weightlessness and flight. Alex Paik’s colorful, multipart geometric constructions are repeated, turned inside out, around and reversed to create larger complex structures.
