A Group Show at Litvak Contemporary Compares Dark Matter to the Creative Process
Gabriel j. Shuldiner
Interested in the disparate associations assigned to the timeless [non]color black, Gabriel j. Shuldiner creates physically powerful, s[r]eductively delicate 'hybridsculpturalpaintings™', that trigger both immediate engagement and visceral reactions. Interested in the 'subtlety of difference produced through repetition' and the 'implied nuanced histories of the oft-overlooked', his work is a unique exploration of 21st century painting and object-making: an ongoing experimentation with unexpected materials. Shuldiner deems his work 'bruteminimalism™' and his custom proprietary, elusive, black variant 'postapocalypticblack™'... based upon the oldest known earth element and key "life" ingredient: (C) carbon. Shuldiner is a native New Yorker and holds a bachelor of arts from new york university and a master of fine arts from Parsons The New School for Design. He participated in the Bronx Museum of the Arts’ Artist in the Marketplace program, The Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts residency program, and is a member of the Artist Pension Trust. His work has been exhibited at Luhring Augustine, New York, NY; Sikkema Jenkins & Co Gallery, New York, NY; The Bronx Museum of the Arts, New York, NY; The Kitchen, New York, NY; Wave Hill Cultural Center, New York, NY; and galleries across the U.S.
