the ‘courts’ series is a tribute to robert’s childhood spent in hong kong, playing outside with children of varying cultures. It was there he learnt that youth transcends language; that contradictions can be unifying. in his soulful photographs, the pastel hues contradict the hard, concrete composition. the cramped, vertical apartment blocks are pitted against vast, empty spaces. returning to a place with fondness can portend disappointment, and in this instance, the laughing children of robert’s youth are nowhere to be seen. there is a sense of the lives of the new inhabitants being lived indoors, and memories fading.
The work of Brooklyn-based artist Josh Sperling. He and artist Sam Friedman currently have a show, From the Cradle to the Grave, up at Joshua Liner Gallery in New York. The show runs until February 6th, so if you happen to be in NY check it out!
From the gallery’s website:
Sperling’s works on canvas waver between wall sculptures and paintings. Building layered plywood structures by hand, the artist stretches canvas over these forms to create a subtle relief. The structures range from angular and geometric to organic reminiscent of fibers and cells. Light and shadow interact with the facets of the pieces, creating an enhanced illusion of depth.
