Rodney Taylor: Impure Abstraction

This survey exhibition of Rodney Taylor\'s paintings from the mid-1990s to the present day explores how the artist employs abstraction and metaphor to convey the experience of contemporary urban life and societal trauma. Produced through a dense combination of muted and lurid pigments mixed with clay, Taylor’s peeling and cracking surfaces are like human skin, worn sidewalks, or arid deserts. City streets, windows, crisscrossing tree limbs, or prison bars are frequent structuring elements in his work and he uses these abstracted grids to communicate the contrasting experiences of barriers and movement, as well as the interplay between lived realities and the interior imagination. His canvases and paper drawings are often exposed and vulnerable in places where the support is stained or left completely raw. Collage elements like old drawings or candy bar wrappers, shredded bits of the real world, often become ensnared in his painterly sagas. In the Middle Passage series from the mid-1990s bodies missing a variety of limbs emerge from somewhere deep inside the canvas. Drawn lines of tumbling comic book characters and other figurative elements tag the surface in his Hero series, sharing space with large amorphous forms that coalesce into human heads and reclining figures before they loose their tenuous grasp on figuration and recede back into an all-consuming abstraction. Buffalo-based painter Rodney Taylor has exhibited internationally. His work is in gallery, private, and museum collections, including the Albright-Knox Art Gallery and the collection of Bill and Camille Cosby. Educated at the Fashion Institute of Technology, State University of New York, Taylor was awarded the Camille Cosby Fellowship, and then attended Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. He was a Milton Avery School of the Arts Fellow at Bard College. The UB Art Gallery, Center for the Arts is open Tuesday through Friday 11 AM to 5 PM; Saturday 1 to 5 PM. For information, please call 716-645-6913. The exhibition, which is free and open to the public, will be on view in the first floor gallery through May 10, 2014. Please check our website for an updated events schedule at ubartgalleries.org The UB Art Gallery is located in the Center for the Arts on the North Campus just north of the I-290 on Millersport Highway. Traveling east or west on the I-290 take exit 5B to Millersport Highway North. Turn onto the campus at the Coventry entrance. As you enter the campus, the Center for the Arts is a high gabled white building directly ahead of you. After 3 PM weekdays and on weekends, parking is free and a permit is not required. During all other times, guests must park in metered spaces, visitor parking lots, or obtain a parking permit from UB Art Gallery staff.

IN HIGH FEATHER

During the month of February, New York-based artist Janelle Iglesias will be using the Lightwell Gallery in the UB Art Gallery, Center for the Arts as a studio, developing IN HIGH FEATHER, a site-specific project inspired by her recent travels throughout Bali, Raja Ampat and West Papua, Indonesia. The UB Art Gallery, Center for the Arts is open Tuesday through Friday 11 AM to 5 PM; Saturday 1 to 5 PM. For information, please call 716-645-6913. The exhibition, which is free and open to the public, will be on view in the Lightwell Gallery through May 10, 2014. Through a Jerome Foundation Travel and Study Grant, the artist journeyed to the Arfak Mountains in search of the most sophisticated avian architecture on earth—the bower of the Vogelkomp bowerbird. To attract female mates, the males of the species demonstrate incredible construction prowess and astonishing aesthetics as they adorn their bowers with collections of a wide array of natural and manmade materials found in their immediate surroundings. Iglesias links her interest in the birds to her own practice–– in which familiar objects are poetically reconfigured into different mechanized systems, ecosystems, constellations or simple displays. Exploring how objects and materials carry meaning as well as our desire to find metaphor and order in the stuff around us, she is equally fascinated by the personal taxonomies of collections and the mind-boggling amounts of matter that is thoughtlessly thrown away. She describes collection and up-cycling as key parts of her practice as the materials and objects she uses contribute layers of meaning into the installations themselves. For Iglesias’ entirely new two-story installation in the Lightwell Gallery she will incorporate images and field recordings from her travels as well as materials sourced locally––such as discarded Christmas trees and cereal boxes.
