Art Out: Joseph Burwell: (decrypted) micro-myths
Images by Cid Roberts
“In storytelling, matter is neither created nor destroyed. It is only infinitely reorganized.”
MIYAKO YOSHINAGA is pleased to present (decrypted) micro-myths, a solo exhibition of installation, drawing, and mixed media works by New York-based artist Joseph Burwell, from June 20 to July 27, 2019. This is Burwell’s third solo exhibition at the gallery. The opening reception will be held Thursday, June 20, 6-8PM. Gallery hours are from Tuesday through Saturday 11AM-6PM.
Joseph Burwell’s multi-faceted presentations combine precise architectural elements with two-dimensional renderings, signs, and objects, displayed throughout the fragmented space in unconventional ways. There is no single ideal vantage point, but rather, we gain clues to the undercurrents of the work by circling its sculptural elements or peering through cut-outs that frame an opposite setting. The artist’s background in architecture echoes in his dexterous use of industrial materials and sharply rendered interiors, and while the work proposes settings that could be inhabited, those settings are also seemingly illogical, populated by objects that take the place of human characters.
