Winston Wächter Fine Art is excited to announce our main gallery winter group exhibition, Here and There, featuring works by Chris Trueman, Zaria Forman, Irene Mamiye, Michael Schultheis, and Amanda Manitach. This exhibition questions the divide between physical and digital work, highlighting the rich intricacies of our technological world that bleed into everyday life. Textured, sinuous videos are juxtaposed with static, tangible counterparts, highlighting the ever-complicated notion of authenticity. Remnants of fleeting images become forever solidified, yet they only magnify a portion of the sprawling whole. This selection of artists diversely interacts with this convergence, showing us the ripples between media in stimulating, new ways.
Mamiye positions the viewer in abundant digital wonderlands, frenetically blurring distinctions between the real and the fabricated, while Trueman repeatedly layers his work to create a similar sense of enveloping stimulation. Contrastingly, Manitach creates tranquil, patterned backgrounds overlaid with irreverent maxims that make us reassess our own ideals and beliefs. Schultheis most directly references his physical craft through fluctuating bursts of line and color that recontextualize his stationary, radiant paintings. In Forman’s work, even the natural landscapes come with a flair of fantastic artificiality, drawing attention to the beauty in recreation. Everything is presented with a knowing wink that divisions are being crossed, worlds are being built, and nothing is ever quite as it seems.
