Canal Projects presents “Dwelling”

Considering the central place that figurative painting has acquired in contemporary artistic practices, Accommodation explores ever-evolving approaches to self-representation. The artists gathered here engage in abstraction, naturalism and photorealistic precision in order to accentuate the psychological and socio-spatial tension of their built environment.

Accommodation features works by Marcus Jahmal (New York), Cheyenne Julien (New York), Ho Jae Kim (South Korea), Kenrick McFarlane (Chicago), Kyung-Me (New York) and Woody De Othello (Florida) that address our complex relationship to ideas of home. While sometimes the perspectives of home can support and nurture our bodies, they can also suggest the entrapment of people’s subjectivities. Following this threat, the artists in this exhibition explore psychologically tense environments that involve both a sense of physical entanglement and a glimpse into complex emotional states through thick washes of color, symmetry and dramatic shifts in perspective.
