This event has ended.
Solo exhibition presenting works from “Techno Garden,” a new body of work from Brooklyn-based artist Brian Alfred. The show consists of paintings and an animation that features a collaboration soundtrack produced with Ghostly Records recording artist Logan Takahashi. The works here follow the artists’ interests in the balance between man’s desire for invention and man’s relationship to the natural environment. Between painting images from office buildings, highways and jumbled computer cables and images of electric sunsets, forest fires and flyovers, Alfred is placing the viewer between two worlds. One is the idealized world of progress and invention and the other is the actual footprint that development and technology has on the natural environment. Finding danger and beauty in both realms puts the judgment on the human desire for progress in a grey area.
