WILL SCHNEIDER-WHITE | THE NOISE OF HIS NAME
DANE WINKLER | CHASSIS
Hamiltonian is pleased to present two new bodies of work by artists Will Schneider-White and Dane Winkler. The exhibitions will run from April 7 – May 9, 2015 with an opening reception on Saturday, April 11 from 7 – 9 pm.
Will Schneider-White continues his painterly translation of literary themes in The noise of his name. Thinking about the notion that, as author William Gass writes, “A character, first of all, is the noise of his name, and all the sounds and rhythms that proceed from him,” Schneider-White creates figures that float between states of specificity, touching on ideas of character, portrait, and the artist's surrogate. The works in The noise of his name. revel in a preoccupation with the mechanics of painting, which, when combined with literary-cum-representational ideas, weave narratives with deep emotional resonance.
Chassis, the metal framework of a man-made structure, alludes also to the formative memories, materials and ideas that guide Dane Winkler’s sculptural practice. In Chassis, Winkler’s harkens back to his childhood in rural upstate New York where days were spent outdoors tending the family farm. Winkler pays homage to recollections both sobering and tender with two ruggedly sophisticated kinetic sculptures that contrast natural materials and industrial machinery, hard labor with nostalgia.
