“Three Artists: Julie Mehretu, Wayne Gonzales, and Julian Lethbridge”

February 3 – March 5, 2011 Three Artists: Julie Mehretu, Wayne

John Berggruen Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition featuring work
by Julie Mehretu, Wayne Gonzales, and Julian Lethbridge on view from
February 3 to March 5, 2011. A preview will be held on Thursday, February
3rd from 5:30 to 7:30 pm.

Working from an archive of map clippings, newspapers, and banal outlines to
elaborate city plans, and diagrams of war and historical destruction, Julie
Mehretu’s paintings and prints attempt to make sense of what happens when
these designs interact. Mehretu abstracts these organizational tools while
abridging their histories to create new narratives that she describes as
“story maps of no location.” With a cacophonous overlay of markings,
her work captures and concentrates the dynamism and fluidity of various
times and places.

Wayne Gonzales works between representation and abstraction, accumulating
images from the internet and recasting them with a painter’s hand.
Gonzales’ low-resolution, grey-scale paintings disrupt preconceived
notions permitting the viewer to develop their own interpretation of an
image.

Employing luminous oil paints and pigment sticks, Julian Lethbridge builds
up the canvas layer upon layer, creating rich, textural, and rhythmic
images. Using a grid or other rough template, Lethbridge creates an
underlying system of stability on which he can make gestural strokes. The
sequence of more varied forms demonstrates the artist’s interest in the
repetition and inherent beauty of natural phenomena. The result is a
meditative observation, both on the modernist grid and the organic
interplay of surface, color, and depth.
