BLACK curated by Kara Brooks features works by two New York based artists Dean Dempsey and Sam Trioli, whose paintings explore the variety of black on black expression. This exhibition intends to demonstrate the result of a surplus of re-appropriation of artistic expression in the 21st century. Analogous to color theory, the color wheel lays out a visual understanding of color and the effects of mixing specific combinations. Through combining two of the primaries, an assortment of hues can be created, much like the evolution of artistic styles. However, combining all paint colors together generates black - the absorption of all colors. BLACK serves as a meditation on ⌘COPY⌘PASTE culture, where creative autonomy and the line between the parroted and the pirated become muddled.
