Featured Artist: Eric Ruschman
APRIL 4 – MAY 30
OPENING RECEPTION APRIL 4 – 5:30 to 9:00 PM
In television production vernacular, "easter eggs" are coy inside jokes or special features situated in widely consumed media. This is precisely how Eric Ruschman structures his ornate and highly chromatic paintings. The launchpads for these geometric abstractions and woodworked shaped panels are those of the gaymer, the sissy, the fan boy. For this body of work, Ruschman has created numerous multi-part paintings which conflate the lived environments of fictional TV families and internet memes along with his own home as well as the space of Circa Modern as a showplace for high design domestic objects. The result is a tender look at how we impress ourselves onto and into objects, fictions, and environments.
