Receiver Presents New Works by Brooklyn Artist Jason Villegas

Hunter Gatherer
new work by Jason Villegas
November 8- 28, 2008

Opening Reception
Saturday November 8, 2008
7-10pm


Brooklyn based artist, Jason Villegas, showcases his new works at Receiver Gallery. Plush fabric sculptures, wall paintings, installations and video work reflect the common theme of consumption of products, sex, death and information.

Villegas' work is an unpolished and coarsely made tribute to global capitalism and progress. Using and consuming whatever acquirable materials are available to him, Villegas deconstructs and reconstructs clothing and knock of fashion products to create tanks, weaponry, orifices, and animals. He works primarily in low-tech materials in order to maximize the invasion into a space. Cardboard, fabric, found objects, and detritus formulate site-specific configurations of these elements and images. Although unavoidable narratives arise from the use of characters and sales parody, it is not the artist's intention to provide linear information. Villegas intends the viewer to become consumed within the relentless devouring, multiplying and destructive nature of paint splatters, immediate drawing, cosmic beast wall paintings, amorphous sculpture, and impoverished landscapes.

The artist will be in attendance and refreshments will be served.

Receiver Gallery Opening Reception: Charlie Callahan -


Dates:
Thu Jan 17, 2008 00:00 - Thu Jan 17, 2008

‘See 4 Sail’
Opening Reception @ Receiver Gallery
Saturday February 2nd, 7-10pm

Callahan's videos, drawings and installations of varying scale hinge on hyper-florescent colors adorning the discarded: gnarled barnacles, pockmarked sea urchins and crude oil collected off the coast of Crete. Working primarily with foamboard and other found recycled materials, Callahan transforms contemporary synthetic creations and actual found objects into larger-than-life natural wonders.

Callahan forces the intersection between nature and the gallery, dragging in the detritus and declaring it worthy of adorning whitewashed walls. Like lava, Callahan's sea-inspired pieces are coastal fragments fossilized without a superficial sheen. These are works that cannot be ignored; whether they jut and pierce out from the walls and tower over viewers or perched at eye level, they quietly beg for intimate scrutiny.
