Stele at Adjacent To Life
Tinsquo's curatorial project, Adjacent To Life, presents Stele: Monotypes by K.J. Schumacher.
With the series Stele, Nashville artist K.J Schumacher has generated monotypes (oil printing on Rives paper) from broken and discarded acrylic plates retrieved from the print shop at the school where he taught for seven years.
In dialogue with the formal concerns of 1950s New York School abstraction and the Minimalism that followed, he explains:
Im using a primary color scheme and slightly offsetting subsequent prints to build the image and produce a more three dimensional effect, underscoring the objectification of the acrylic plates. I make a distinction with these works; this is not using the plates to make a mark, rather it is using ink to record the found objects (plates). I also chose primary colors to underscore the notion of building an image as a way to refer back to my teaching studio.

Daily Operation at Adjacent To Life
In a complementary exhibit to his show last year featuring gouaches of East Village landmarks, Nathan Stapley - a lead artist and illustrator at Double Fine Productions - returns with a neighborhood portrait of a uniquely intimate nature: his daily operation. Nathan states, "these paintings represent the things that I see everyday, from my apartment on 8th Street to the commute to my studio in Brooklyn."
Daily Operation: Paintings by Nathan Stapley runs through January 15 and is on view at the Adjacent to Life pop-up gallery housed in Ninth Street Espresso (341 E. 10th Street at Ave B, New York City).
