Press Release

May 3 – June 15, 2012
Opening Reception: Thursday, May 3, 6:00 – 8:00 PM

DC Moore Gallery is pleased to present the group exhibition Five by Five, curated by the painter Barbara Takenaga. Takenaga has chosen five contemporary artists who work with dense patterns and multiple layers, creating visual mash-ups that mimic the compression of the contemporary world and the new accessibility of information. The expression “five by five” originally described sound clarity in radio communication and has become shorthand for “loud and clear.” The exhibition will open with a reception for the artists on Thursday, May 3 from 6-8 pm and it closes on June 8, 2012.

Featured in the exhibition will be Sarah Walker, who interweaves dissimilar patterns in neon and cool acrylic hues, revealing many strata of processes and systems in a kind of archaeological simultaneity. Jane South constructs painted architectural sculptures of paper that are as industrial as they are archaic and whimsical. Tom Burckhardt’s oil paintings on cast plastic blend representation with abstraction, often resembling nonsensical technological items and ambiguous, subliminal figures. Carrie Moyer references painting’s history in both subject and technique, using acrylic washes and glitter to create layered, natural forms that suggest figures prehistoric and modern. Finally, Kanishka Raja creates complex images using information from disparate global settings that suggest multiple and incongruent points of view.

Barbara Takenaga’s most recent solo exhibition was at DC Moore Gallery in the fall of 2011.
