Nathan Hylden "Starting To An End"
This event has ended.
Nathan Hylden was born in 1978, in Fergus Falls, Minnesota, and is presently based in Los Angeles, California. Hylden has had solo exhibitions in Los Angeles at Richard Telles Fine Art and in Paris at Art: Concept, and his work has been included in several group exhibitions around the world.
For this exhibition at Misako and Rosen, Nathan Hylden has made a group of paintings that remain individual works but are conceived of and produced simultaneously as a group. The canvases are used as tools in the construction of their own image. The paintings are produced in a very direct and strictly additive way, built up of sprayed florescent orange paint, chosen for its given opticality, and layers of black lines sprayed through a stencil and repeated through all the canvases. In this group the smaller paintings are used as a stencil to create the colored ground for the larger canvas, the over spray thus simultaneously produces the ground for the smaller paintings and an image on the larger canvas that is the index of the other paintings.
Hylden's interest lies in this process of displacement and its undoing of the order of means and ends that is the definition of technique, ultimately asking questions about the temporality of the artists production and how one can experience a painting.
This is Hylden's first exhibition in Japan. As with Hylden's other exhibitions an artist book will be published in cooperation with Sprout Publishing to accompany and supplement the works in the exhibition.
Opening Reception: November 27th (Tue) 18:00-20:00
