Justin Coleman + Shawn Gilheeney
Opening Reception: November 1st, 6-9PM
Exhibition: November 1 – December 20
Join World’s Fair Gallery on Friday, November 1st from 6 – 9pm for the opening reception of AIRPLANE MODE, new ceramics and paintings by JSTN CLMN and Shawn Gilheeney.
JSTN CLMN unveils his new series of ceramic Rims and a collection of Alreadymades. CLMN’s objets d’art and ceramic sculptures challenge the dynamics of cultural status and the relationship humans have with material objects.
Shawn Gilheeney’s bold, saturated paintings pull pinstripe, airbrush and enamels out of their traditional realms into a visceral remix of sky, line and landscape. Application, paint finish and technique each serve as metaphorical devices for how humans experience different planes of reality in this time of ubiquitous distraction.
Airplane Mode – a setting and a function, ‘off-line’ as it were. What is your automatic pilot? Who are the technicians of your attention span? What are your terms of engagement? Sign on, tune in. Sign off, tune out. What’s your status?
