To Be Announced

Mrz 23, 2012


Since Richard Colman and Andrew Schoultz first met five years ago they have talked on and off about creating an exhibition together. To Be Announced, as the title indicates, something new is on the horizon. To Be Announced is about the future and what we will all make of it. Both artists present new bodies of work that diverge in artistic style from what they have become known for. They are venturing into new territory together.

Andrew Schoultz engages our way of spending our time, and the future, on our planet. His art is an extrovert call for attention to our destructive and often greedy modus operandi. Crisis; human, global, financial and environmental. A new series of works on flags, that pay homage to Jasper Johns, originated when Schoultz purchased an American flag, for an artwork, in America from an American company, only to realize that it was produced in China. It seems that we are all, not only Americans, as patriotic as the dollar.

Richard Colman’s strange, sexy, surreal and often humorous subject matter and work has a peculiar universal feeling vested in it. Grotesque and sometimes macabre, the work is still very humane and taps into a common sub consciousness. In this new body of work, Richard returns to his youth for materials, an avid skater in the past, he now uses grip tape as a medium. Colman’s work is explicit and introvert at the same time, a broken mirror reflecting what is not directly in front of us, but in us.
