Visceral and immediate, the paintings of American artist Angela Dufresne and drawings of British-born Nicola Tyson confront the risks of walking the line between figural and abstract work. Living Dangerously presents audiences with an unforgettable dialogue between the two.
From the charged cultural scene of post-punk London through her evolution as a photographer, painter, and written word, artist Nicola Tyson captures the immediacy of the body: what it elicits from the outside world, and what it conveys from the inside out. In fifteen drawings created in what she calls an intuitive, free-associative process, Tyson explores the figure not as an object to be sensationalized, but as an instrument through which we perceive our physical and psychological worlds.
Art theory and beautiful brushwork come together on three large-scale paintings by Angela Dufresne. The Brooklyn-based artist, a 2016 Guggenheim Fellow, limns mythology and movies, as well as figurative and landscape painting in complex canvases that play with the illusion of narrative. Hyperallergic critic John Yau writes of Dufresne’s paintings, “their real strength is that you cannot extract a story from them – that you can’t reduce what you see into some tale that you can take with you.”
