New York based curatorial collaborative AD Projects hosted a group exhibition entitledSpectrum Vision this Sunday at Reverse Art Space in Williamsburg. Notable standouts of the show were Alex Yudzon, Jeffrey Beebe, and artist & sculptor Alex Arcadia.
Yudzon’s Atlas Cloud series, mixed media over pages of a 1937 atlas uses lines of demarcation as composition and detail, exploring boundaries of nations and the relevance of symbols that divide form and distance.
“I am incredibly inspired by the concept of travel,” Said Yudzon. “Some of these pieces represent, in broad strokes, what the landscape might look like in the area the map represents, allowing the viewer to fill the finer details with their own imagination.”
Jeffrey Beebe shows a huge cast of characters in The Copper Palanquin, part of a larger series entitled “Adventures in Refractoria.” The characters are numerous and delicately conceived — residents of an imaginary world which parallels Beebe’s own history.
