Guest Spot is proud to announce a dual exhibition entitled Toward a New Form Order featuring artists Lisa Dillin (Baltimore) and Matthew Northridge (New York City). Opening Saturday December 15, 2012, the works will be on view through January 26, 2013.

Recursive systems generally create the impression that the sum of parts dictate the form of the whole. Fractals, as self-similar patterns, are understood to be the same from near as from far. In the realm of social and political satire, when presented as a form of critique, a certain alchemy can occur and elevate familiar patterns beyond trivial self-similarity.
The tendency to dissect a punch line and disaggregate a joke into its parts truncates one’s ability to see the particular humor within. The somber order, sense of solitude, and dry wit contextually linked to minimal art is merely a backdrop against which these artists embellish their political will. Both Dillin and Northridge’s approaches are in some ways substantially similar; although both borrow from a minimal aesthetic, they also possess the ability to obsessively examine minutely, while maintaining a transcendent outlook. The result is a humorous-like paradox, as if they are saying “I am serious, so I am laughing.”



A panel discussion will take place at Gallery Four from 4pm – 6pm followed by a closing reception for GRAN PRIX from 6pm – 9pm. Panel topics will include artists and curating, social media as brand identity and gallery, and the increasingly seamless integration of internet aesthetics in contemporary art. Please join us!
