In the way heat rises from a length, displacing objects from get, the paintings of Ben Quinn and Robert Falco functionality like the moiré of a screen— revealing that eyesight by itself exceeds our means to seize it. The works in Fever Aspiration collapse the religious realm in between encounter, sensation, and observation and grasp at the conditions of the present— an notice financial state constructed on pictures and multitasking.
Occupying numerous worlds at when, Falco’s entropic diptychs bloom and deteriorate concurrently, selectively revealing and concealing by themselves like a vespertine flower.
With a prismatic palette, Quinn considers the star as necessary device of measurement — of both atomic and cosmological proportions, a usually means of calculating the unquantifiable. Hues reverberate, presenting each an entrance and an exit, inviting us to look in as opposed to at.
