Part One

Two shows to have on your radar for February and a recap of what is up in 02127 Galleries until the end of the month.

Saul Chernick’s solo show opens in February at the LaMontagne Gallery

LaMontagne Gallery is presenting new work from New York-based artist Saul Chernick. From the gallery’s website: “Saul Chernick treats the Medieval landscape as a siphon for contemporary culture…(His) prints introduce a new set of questions, comparing Medieval artists’ fascination with heaven with the otherworldly space of the computer screen. In the same way that many of the earliest mass-produced images attempt to show divinity, Chernick’s prints show the desktop as a pastoral breeding-ground where floating windows overlap, and framing devices mutate with the information they  are made to contain. Just as mythical characters walk and slither into clearings, frames in “Pangaea” float and overlap, merging rocky arches and Renaissance torsos with empty media players.”
