Centering oneself among silence and a calm view
A vortex, a portal, diminution
There is the present and the ghost
Slowness and gradual stillness
A bright lightness
Continual amorphous forms
Broken lights dissipating
Empty lines and barriers
Temperature, humidity, elevation
The air around objects and empty space. Abstraction looks and feels among us. In a time of continual unease, we have the space in each other’s minds and thoughts to contemplate ourselves and the microcosms we move within. Telemetry.
Y2K is pleased to announce a three-person exhibition of recent works by Alicia Adamerovich, Alisa Bones, Jenna Ransom. These three Brooklyn and Queens-based artists are working with a process-forward and fused form of abstract/surrealism. Although recognizable images are more diffused, there is a slowness and sound or calamity that resonates with each work. The works present spaces internally and externally whereby we can process, focus, unwind, and clear a space for stillness. In that moment, lost among time, ideas, experiences, emotion, or anything that remains arrives in the forefront of our minds. This is a clean-slate space fluctuating in our eyes and through our neural sensors. Timelines and reflection collapse and can be seen in-sync with one another. Energy can slow and transform into unpredictable movement but is always among us.
Asthma, Strange Fruit
Butterfly on my Tongue
All Tomorrow’s Parties
Smoke and blurriness
