Rollin Beamish’s solo show explores the relationships between people (real and fictional), their ideas, and their likenesses.
Barrister’s Gallery presents “Still Shadows,” a solo exhibition of recent works by previous Joan Mitchell Center resident Rollin Beamish. The artist’s extremely detailed graphite drawings depict political theorists and writers, among other figures. Beamish culls his source materials from Internet searches, using images that have already been extracted from their sites of origin through a sequence of screenshots and reblogs. “Still Shadows” avoids presenting a solid political stance and instead investigates how words and images are used to various ends.
“Still Shadows” is on view at Barrister’s Gallery through November 7, 2015. While at the gallery, don’t miss CSA artist Artemis Antippas’ video installation EATING CHICKEN (mild) / EATING CHICKEN (spicy).
