Pensive @ Tile Blush
Group Show, Miami, Florida, December, 2017.
Tile Blush is proud to present Pensive, a group show of particular paintings, drawings and furniture presented in vignettes. Pensive is the inaugural show for Tile Blush and will be on view at the gallery at 8375 N.E. 2nd Avenue from December 2nd, 2017 through January 27th, 2018. There will be an opening reception from 6 to 9 pm on Saturday, December 2nd.
As our tumultuous world erupts, shocks and then entropies, Pensive aims to provide a moment of respite to ponder the sometimes abstruse agency between thought and transmission; The compromise between intent and object; The gulf between creativity and duplication.
Pensive features drawings by Doug Crocco, paintings by Heesu Jeon and Manny Prieres and furniture and design objects by Jonathan Nesci. While these four individuals come from differing paradigms their curious methodological byways and high regard for aesthetic cohesion present a generous opportunity to lose yourself in their work.
Doug Crocco delicately renders physical yet labyrinthine abstractions in color pencil. Heesu Jeon scumbles glowing compositions on canvas depicting collages of detritus, anime pastiches and constructivism. Jonathan Nesci fabricates stark minimal furniture and objects, binding form and function usually with a single material. Manny Prieres hard edge abstractions resemble printed matter but are painstakingly constructed through a hands on tone transfer process.
