2732: Brian Bress — January 16 - March 12, 2016
Cherry and Martin is pleased to present a new body of wall-mounted HD monitor works by Brian Bress. Bress’s wall-mounted HD monitors show a soundless, digital loop in which isolated actors (often the artist himself) perform in various forms of dress. The faces, torsos, and arms of these characters are obscured by painted masks and suits. They face frontal and use the HD monitor’s screen as a picture plane through which they cut with reciprocating saws to reveal their own presence. Read more »
