April 13th, 2013

Ed Templeton “SYMPTOMS” at Tim Van Laere Gallery, Antwerp. Through April 5th.

March 25th, 2013


In Ed Templeton’s most recent exhibition at Tim Van Laere Gallery, he shows for the very first time paintings on large pieces of paper. Moreover, he will exhibit with a newfound way of photographic grouping, decontextualizing the subject from its environment and isolating these in-between moments that are generated by his photographic work. The colors and the subjects in each image create connections, tell stories, and trigger memories as they are stacked together. The title of the show “Symptoms” refers to a recurrent thought of Templeton. “I feel like we live in a symptomatic society. All of our social ills are symptoms of behaviors and we always seem to worry about the symptoms but never try to change the direct cause. It also reminds me of drug commercials here in the US, and how silly they are. It is a word that brings these sorts of ideas to mind for me.” explains the artist.

Through April 5, 2013

September 11th, 2012

Johanson’s new paintings on found wood are self-contained compositions, or ‘meditations on being,’ and several will incorporate painting directly on the gallery walls in a play on windows and transparency. The artist approaches these paintings as windows onto the world, windows to the past or future, or portals for introspection: looking out, and looking in. I you’re in New York be sure to check this show out!
