Anthony Goicolea’s “Shadow Projection,” at Monte Clark Gallery, Vancouver, Canada

August 13, 2016 to September 3, 2016

MONTE  CLARK GALLERY

In Anthony Goicolea’s new exhibition “Shadow Projection,” the Cuban-American artist continues his investigation of portraiture, identity, beauty, and the grotesque in a series of mixed media works on double-sided frosted mylar film.

Goicolea’s “Shadow Projection Portraits” are presented as videographic images with black bars above and below, the letterbox format referencing the transference of wide format film to standard width video. Rendered as photo-like film stills in graphite and acrylic, the portraits further conflate the mediums of film, photography, and painting.

Borrowing the most visually compelling and striking characteristics from different portrait subjects, Goicolea repeats traditionally beautiful features in duplicate or triplicate until they morph or dissolve into hauntingly abstracted and deformed renderings of engineered faces. Each portrait is an amalgamation of different facial features cobbled together from semi-androgynous men and women, and the series has strong ties to the artist’s early self-portrait work. Traditional portraiture encourages the viewer to hone in on specific characteristics to identify a specific individual, while these portraits rebuke that instinct—it is almost impossible for the eye to rest on any one specific recognizable feature before it dissolves into the next layer of dislocated eyes, nose or mouth.

Anthony Goicolea: PATHETIC FALLACY at Postmasters Gallery, NY

September 10 – October 15, 2011

Opening: Saturday, September 10, 6 – 8 PM

Postmasters Gallery

459 West 19th Street
Chelsea

Postmasters is pleased to present Pathetic Fallacy, an exhibition of new drawings and photographs by ANTHONY GOICOLEA. This will be the artist’s fourth solo show at the gallery. Central to the exhibition is a forty-foot long wall of layered drawings, large and small, rendered in graphite and ink on mylar.

The term “pathetic fallacy,” coined by John Ruskin in Modern Painters (1856), describes the treatment of inanimate objects and places as if they had human feelings, thoughts, or sensations.

In this new group of photographs and drawings nature takes on anthropomorphic characteristics. A new, uneasy equilibrium is created as human and animal bodies merge, trees grow hair and pump blood, flies multiply into tornadoes and wild dogs settle in the ruins of a home.

Anthony Goicolea in group show “Late Summer Blues”, an exhibition curated by Sara Reisman + Ian Daniel- in Brooklyn, New York

July 22-August 7, 2011
Opening Reception: Friday, July 22, 6-9PM

Storefront

16 Wilson Avenue
Brooklyn, NY

Featuring the work of:

Salvatore Arancio
Anthony Goicolea
Pablo Helguera
Mary Mattingly
Francesco Simeti
Letha Wilson

Late Summer Blues is an exhibition of collage-based works in video, photography, and sculpture that reflects on our collective impulse to reconfigure and manipulate the landscape – both urban and rural – as a means of escape from the compression of summer in the city. Coupled with the desire to find respite from the concrete hardscapes that permeate our vision and movement, Late Summer Blues also suggests an imminent inversion of desire. As the middle of summer passes, a premature sense of nostalgia for the end of summer as an end of freedom comes into focus. How do we spend the last days of summer?

Each of the artists in the exhibition offer us with views of summer that involve conceptual and formal manipulations as a means of re-orienting the viewer’s understanding of place, time, and the atmosphere we occupy.

—-
STOREFRONT was started by Jason Andrew and Deborah Brown. It is Bushwick’s leading gallery presenting both emerging young talent and established historically significant artists.

HOURS: Weekends 1:00-6:00PM or by appointment 646-361-8512. www.storefrontbk.com

Re-imagining Personal History: Anthony Goicolea’s RELATED

by Madeline Yale

Spot Magazine, Spring 2010

If we hold an early Daguerreotype in our hands, a shimmery ghost-like figure faces opposite, arrested in photographic form contained by glass and enshrined within its casing. A memorial trophy, an early Daguerreotype is a possession of a history past and a reference to social trends of an era. The evolution of these keepsakes before the turn of the 20th century spawned the business of vernacular portrait studios, an important period in the history of the medium when photography became a fashionable method for middle class citizens to cherish and parade their loved ones.
