Nick van Woert + Nicholas Pittman: New Construction

Fourteen30 Contemporary (map) Southwest
Tuesdays-Saturdays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through Dec. 6 2008

For Fourteen30’s second show since opening in small A projects’ former space, director Jeanine Jablonski has paired two young artists, Brooklyn’s Nick van Woert and Vancouver, BC’s Nicholas Pittman, who share a playfully irreverent attitude toward convention. In the case of Pittman, who paints tightly controlled, gouache-on-linen works, he’s rebelling against the genre trappings of psychedelic art, attempting to purify it of representation as well as references to drug culture. Van Woert, on the other hand, addresses classical sculpture through his totemic works, which feature busts of David or Franz Schubert. However, where one might expect classical materials, van Woert favors a kind of Home Depot aesthetic, employing insulation foam, plexiglass, and sculpted heaps of polyurethane adhesive.
