Appropriating an image from the opening lines of Dante’s Inferno as visual and thematic source material for the exhibit, the artists in Among Darkened Woods present works that seek to represent the derivative potential of darkness, to probe the obscure, to lend plasticity to shadows and other forms evanescent, to perceive presences and apparitions in that which seems to have disappeared.

While Dante’s infernal quest leads him from the selva oscura of life’s proper path gone astray, as it were, to visions of the most profound reaches of physical suffering, punishment and ceaseless decay, the works here suggest an earlier stopping point, a less hellish locus, a place perhaps only subtly subterranean where forms have not yet dropped into the abyss of a falling apart, evoking instead the ordered calm of a falling away.

Featuring paintings, drawings, sculptures and mixed-media works by Tim Kent,
SHM Kim, Adam Collison, Amanda Nedham, Mary Kate Maher, Monika Zarzeczna
and Paul D’Agostino, and featuring an essay accompaniment by Paul D’Agostino.

January 16th through February 15th 2009

Opening Reception: Friday, January 16th, 7-10pm

Ad Hoc Art is proud to present “Delineations”: a collection of drawings and illustrations from a diverse group of international artists.  Drawing has been and will always be a fundamental part of the art-making process.  Starting as far back as the 1400’s, artists such as Leonardo da Vinci, Albrecht Dürer, Michelangelo, and Raphael used drawing as not only a starting point but as a way to communicate things which could not be accomplished in any other medium. Fast forward to the 1900’s as artists such as Max Beckmann, Jean Dubuffet, Arshile Gorky, M. C. Escher, André Masson, and Pablo Picasso not only continued this serious examination of drawing as fine art, but took it to incredible new places through their creativity and talent.  In more recent times artists such as Marcel Dzama, R. Crumb, Dan Clowes, Joe Sacco, Yoshitomo Nara, and Julie Doucet (among many, many others) again redefined how we look at drawing as not only a means to an end but an important and impressive end in itself.  Continuing with this amazing tradition, we present to you a new generation of drawers and illustrators who hope to not only add to this amazing lineage of artists but to also find ways to reinvent and reinterpret how drawing can be used to communicate and enlighten.
