MFA Sculpture Alumnus, Strauss Bourque-La France has a solo show up now at Rachel Uffner Gallery!

Author: matthews

At first glance, post paintings might seem like an incredibly pretentious name for an exhibition—the  kind you roll your eyes at and think, “Jesus,  another show  about  painting.”  Well,  I’d say  it’s not really  what  you  think.  Like  any decent show about the medium, Strauss’ title is kind of a gag. It’s both about painting and everything painting is not—the catch being the two are always dialectically tethered, in good, postmodern fashion (Derrida in “The Parergon”: “The incomprehensibility  of [a] border”).  Note how there’s no dash between post  and  painting,  because  these  “paintings”  are  literally  posts  (so  many tongues  and  cheeks  here).  They’re  made  of  2”  x  2”  basswood  sections, stacked and latticed in varying configurations. They’re similar to the basswood pieces in his T293 show, USA Objects, and may seem rather dissimilar from his earlier Rachel Uffner outing, with its shiny, laminate surfaces and striped carpeting.
