Public opening, Wednesday, March 11, 6-8pm
New Discretions and Bill Arning Exhibitions are proud to present
Betwixt: three artists from New York (Porter) and Houston
(Cullar-Ledford and Kremer) will present works that intersect
with the photographic without sitting fully in the confines
of that mediums specificity. Porter will share some of his
celebrated photographs of vintage cars appearing to hover
in midair. Popularly known as the “flying car” series
these works are a hybrid of hyperreality and studied, topographic description,
part bittersweet nostalgia and part ironic reinvention of a classic American trope.
These are combined with discreet small
images culled from the larger images that accentuate the cinematic
details the artist uses to imbue the frozen moments with a
complex cinematic narrative.
Cullar-Ledford, best known for works in response to the double
mastectomy she needed in 2015 and the way it made her
reconceptualize her body as being made of removable and
interchangeable parts, will exhibit for the first time in Houston her
Endollinations in which living humans are transformed into life-sized
cowboy and barbie dolls .
Paul Kremer is Houston’s secret art star, being based in Houston
but rarely showing his twin practice here.
Having first achieved fame for Great Art in Ugly Rooms, a project
designed originally for online consumption, in which revered
masterworks are transposed into unglamorous spaces.
Kremer then achieved worldwide reknown for creating
luscious super flat takes on modernism that appeared already
transposed in time and space as are the masterworks.
Part of FotoFest 2020.
Gallery Hours Wednesday to Sunday 12-6, during live arts nights and by appointment.
