Charles Goldman: 4X4X4X4.
Based in Brooklyn NY, artist Charles Goldman makes work that extends sculpture into painting, installation, performance, drawing, sound, photography and architecture.
His exhibition at Birch Contemporary, 4X4X4X4, consists of 4 works from 4 concurrent and long-term series.
RE>CRETE> (Seated) is an edition of 4 RE>CRETE> modules, seated atop 4 identical IKEA tables. The RE>CRETE> modules have no inside or outside, no top or bottom. They are both figure and ground, both subjective and objective. Distance Painting (Folded) is a transparent, double-sided 200-foot-long painting, split in half, creating a layering of 4 – 50-foot-long sections. The piece is created on 3/4in. Plexiglass and is free-standing, held aloft by a piece of rough lumber. Moments are a series of intimately sized "fast paintings." Created with the refuse of whatever else is being created in the studio, without much regard for intent or content, they are portraits of fleeting moments. The DWGS. are just that, and, again, there are only 4 presented here (of, potentially, thousands). The interconnectedness of these 4 bodies of work presents a focused picture of the various activities taking place within Goldman's studio over the past couple of years. This is Charles Goldman's 4th exhibition with the gallery
(RE>CRETE> is a custom-designed, 95% recycled building material made from shredded newspaper and junk mail, ground-up packing Styrofoam, home electronics wire, credit cards and CDs, salvaged house paint, old jeans, Portland cement and fly ash).

final day of exhibition
Donald Sultan: Dominoes ... more
Donald Sultan: Dominoes.
We are delighted to announce an exhibition comprising the full suite of Donald Sultan's Dominoes aquatint etchings from 1990. this 28-piece set is typical of Sultan's playful use of representational, everyday objects as abstract forms – in this case the simple graphic quality of a set of dominoes.
For this exhibition we present an interactive installation. Following the rules of a traditional dominoes game, the highest double domino (6/6) will initially be hung on one wall of the space. The remaining 27 works will be available for audience members to select and place next to the starting domino, one per day, during gallery hours. The installation will build over time, resulting in a game of dominoes that will unfold over the course of the exhibition.
