If you think that I’ll wait forever you were right, and, I’ll give you everything you wanted if I can.
Nancy Brooks - Brody Merce Drawing, 2011.
The exhibition, SUITES IN SPACE: Merce Drawings and Color Forms, features two new series of works. Merce Drawings are linear compositions executed on top of still photographic images of Cunningham performances, which foreground shapes made by the body as it traveled through space and time. To create Merce Drawings, Brody prints low-res images culled from the Internet onto newsprint. These photographs of dancers’ bodies capture a tilted head or a shift in weight to create fixed points that guide the visual plane. While Brody makes several prints of the same image, each unique work underscores the live act of drawing - the unpredictability and the inscription of movement onto time. The painting-objects, Color Forms, are further meditations on the impression a body leaves behind. For these works, Brody embeds enamel-painted shapes made of lead into shallow clefts carved directly into the wall. An extension of her life drawing practice, they are characteristic of Brody’s investment in transmissions, transitions and form. @ Andrew Kreps.

"Each and every one of us has the capacity to be an oppressor. I want to encourage each and everyone of us to interrogate how we might be an oppressor and how we might be able to become liberators for ourselves and for each other."
Industrial scars: Aerial photographs of pollution by J Henry Fair
“The vivid color photographs of J Henry Fair lead an uneasy double life as potent records of environmental pollution and as ersatz evocations of abstract painting…information and form work together, to devastating effect.” -Roberta Smith, The New York Times
