Preview: Gregory Euclide at Martha Otero Gallery

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

Gregory Euclide (featured in Hi-Fructose Vol. 14) creates poetry from throw-away materials. Dyed hair, plastic bags, sage, foam and fishing line dance and swirl together with unusual harmony — despite their incongruousness, these materials fit together seamlessly in his diorama-like assemblages. Euclide’s delicate, three-dimensional works require the viewer to get up close and peer into the depth of these miniature oases. Quietly rebelling against a history of imperialistic landscape painting that stems from the idea of mastering nature, Euclide creates his artwork with a conservationist message in mind. Euclide will open a solo show featuring new landscape relief paintings and porcelain-coated steel specimens painted with Sumi ink at Martha Otero Gallery in Los Angeles on April 13. Take a look at our preview of the works in the show below and see the exhibition on view April 13 – May 11.
