CURRENT GROUP EXHIBITION

LOGICAL GUESSESCURATED BY HOUSE OF THE NOBLEMAN 

Through April 26 at Driscoll Babcock Galleries, Logical Guesses, features work by Harriet Bart, Jarrod Beck, Marylyn Dintenfass, Alice Hope, Sol Lewitt, Charles Lutz, Ryan and Trevor Oakes, and James Scott. The exhibition, curated by House of the Nobleman, features a diverse group of artists who express aesthetic variations through calculations, patterns, and equations. Favoring rational hypothesis over emotional development, these artists manipulate light and materials to explore the properties and illusions of space.

Rather than spontaneity, these artists engage with specific rule systems and guidelines to perpetuate a unique engagement with object and form. These shared philosophies of production imbue their works with a sense of the absolute, inevitably linked through evolution, variation, and dynamical phenomena, and their systematic processes elicit an innate consistency throughout the exhibition. Dintenfass' installatioLegato V, references musical theme and variation and is part of the artist's recent series Perfect Pitch.

ARMORY ARTS WEEK RECAP
 
THE ARMORY SHOW MODERN: MONADNOCK OPAL EARLY DRAWING FROM MACDOWELL COLONY ON VIEW AT PIER 92
 
 

An early drawing, Monadnock Opal, was exhibited by Driscoll Babcock Galleries on Pier 92 of the Armory Show/Modern. From Dintenfass' Monadnock series, this drawing was completed during one of the artist's residencies at the MacDowell Colony in New Hampshire.
 

THE ARMORY SHOW VIP PROGRAM: CEASELESS COLLABORATION—AN INTERACTIVE MULTI-DISCIPLINE INSTALLATION


 
Presented for The Armory Show VIP Program, Marylyn Dintenfass assembled an innovative collaboration between Architect Aida Miron; Photographer/ Videographer Theo Cote; Technologist Michael Tamburro; and Visual + Sound Artist Paul Kerin, entitled CEASELESS COLLABORATION.

This interdisciplinary project contains visual and video elements and an interactive component as it rethinks the place of the artists' studio and its relation with the site and the public. Visitors to Dintenfass' studio participated in the decision process with their input becoming a part of the final installation. Click HERE to see more about CEASELESS COLLABORATION.
 


PUBLIC INSTALLATION

art in NEON: ON VIEW DAILY AT DRISCOLL BABCOCK GALLERIES

An installation of Dintenfass' art—one of the works from the artist's series of life's essentials in neon: art, eat, sex—is now on view as a long-term exhibition in Driscoll Babcock Galleries' window. Salvaged from a South Carolina junk yard, the work combines the sensibility of popular culture with reclaimed object upcycling.
 


MONOGRAPHS

Available: DROP DEAD GORGEOUS, PARALLEL PARK, PAINTINGS

  

DROP DEAD GORGEOUS is Dintenfass’ body of large-scale chromatic abstractions of stunningly beautiful, but poisonous flowers, which evoke a representational narrative about nature’s fatally duplicitous markers. Embodying the theme of “things are not what they seem,” these works draw their inspiration from some of nature’s most beautiful, yet dangerous plants. The 64-page hardcover book with full-color plate is published by Driscoll Babcock Galleries, and authored by Scott Indrisek, Executive Editor of Modern Painters magazine.

MARYLYN DINTENFASS: PARALLEL PARK is the first book to document Dintenfass' life-long love affair with automobiles, especially the culturally iconic high-powered, sporty, sexy muscle cars that streamed out of Detroit from the late 1950's to the mid-1970's. The book critically explores how Dintenfass' drawings, monotypes, and paintings are the genesis for Parallel Park—a 30,000 square foot, site-specific installation in Fort Myers, Florida—which having just celebrated it's 3rd anniversary, is one of the largest and most transformative art installations in the US of the past decade. Illustrated with more than 175 full-color plates, and authored by Aliza Edelman, PhD.

PAINTINGS is one of the most complete presentations published on Dintenfass' paintings. Her work has long been rooted in minimalism’s modular grid, yet supersedes it through her inspired abstract imagery. Enigmatic and hypnotic, her images often interweave contradictory or even symbiotic dualities that are the essence of life’s experiences. This 144 page monograph, with 76 color plates, is authored by New York–based independent curator, critic, and essayist Lilly Wei.
