László von Dohnányi: Artificial Radiance

Opening Reception: Saturday, March 23rd, 2024, 6 - 8pm

March 23rd - April 21st, 2024

Andrew Reed Gallery announces Artificial Radiance, László von Dohnányi’s first solo exhibition in Miami and second in the United States. The paintings in the show Artificial Radiance each have a historic religious painting as their counterpart, serving as points of aesthetic departure. These works utilize light or its absence as narrative tools to signify the divine, exploring how these established visual aids can communicate narratives of otherworldliness and be recycled to explore similar concepts from the domain of technology. This repetition or reproduction of commonplace archetypes, akin to the concept of the ‘meme’ – elements of culture passed from one individual to another by imitation or other non-genetic means– reflects the pairing of historic religious themes with contemporary technological concepts. As Mark O’Connell wrote in To Be a Machine, there is a belief that scientific progress is sup-planting religion as the vector of our deepest cultural desires and delusions, with concepts such as rebirth, eternal life, and creation, traditionally theological, now being reinterpreted through science and, specifically, artificial intelligence (AI).

Sam Creasey: Nimby

Opening Reception: Saturday, March 23rd, 2024, 6 - 8pm

March 23rd - April 21st, 2024

Andrew Reed Gallery announces Nimby, Sam Creasey’s first solo exhibition in the United States. The London-based artist mines from his own employed life in delivery logistics as an influence bank and as a psycho-geographical adventure into the lives and localities of various microcosms of city life. ‘Nimbyism’ (not in my back yard!) is one of the most widely used acronyms for those anxious of change if it is local to them, while oblivious to it if it is not. The title for the show takes on the personality of someone who is ill-equipped for the changes in the landscape around them. Over time, places and space change and morph in waves of sprawling expansion and contraction; we are but mostly powerless to stop it. Creasey posits how the show’s change-wary protagonists grapple with this entropy.
