Foreland Presents

System Sets

Curated by Jesse Greenberg

With works by David Brooks, Nathaniel De Large, Matthew Fischer, Russel Tyler, Susan Wides

Foreland is Please to present System Sets, a group show curated by Jesse Greenberg. Showcasing the works of David Brooks, Nathaniel De Large, Matthew Fischer, Russel Tyler, Susan Wides. With a focus revolving around forms and systems shared between nature and tools of observation.

David Brooks two aluminum cast renderings made from scanned drone footage of now deforested spots in the rainforest reveal tufts of tree tops and lumbering facilities emerging from a spill of aluminum presented on the floor like a memorial plaque.

Nathaniel De Large paper pulp wryley forms, seem like branches. Expressive and reaching, actually double as crude Augmented Reality Phone Cases. When attached to your phone, their branches reach into your camera frame, placing his art in any scene.

Matthew Fischer’s stained glass and oil on panel structures take the sun drenched light of the gallery, refracted through each other and through the room. Framing light and color, harping on musical ouvres, these works suspend something holy yet under identifiable proportions.

Russel Tylers serial formatic paintings look like film stills of a movie about stained glass. Each similar in their system and structure exist in their own harmony of hand, color, and proportional compositions, that could seemingly have endless iterations.

Susan Wides's “Arachnoid” photographic series of extreme close-ups of spider webs intermingled with the camera's internal lens flares and spectral trails present a tiny world where the physical, atomic, and macro all fold into their own indistinguishable field of abstract structures.
