Mike Nemire: HiColor

Nemire’s paintings carry the same obscure emotional charge as video color test bands, glowing stripes of pure color that signal a pause before the start of the video’s narrative. The paintings are all variations on that “before” moment, endowing it with resonance as the primary subject.

Phoebe Washburn: Locating Propriety in the Inappropriate

Because it is a zany exploration of progress and decay, this is a work that, by its very nature, will unfold and only fully realize itself with the passage of time
