March 2012, Los Angeles— At Art Brussels, Cherry and Martin presents new works by Los Angeles-based artists Matt Connors and Amanda Ross-Ho. Also included are works from the estates of Robert Heinecken and Robert Overby, some of which have not been seen in over two decades.
Matt CONNORS, winner of the 2012 Belgacom prize at Art Brussels, will exhibit a new 4-part stained canvas work, each part being made from a single pot of paint. Connors’ solo exhibition, “Impressionism,” appeared at MOMA PS1 (New York) in 2012. His sculptural work will be the subject of Cherry and Martin's presentation at Art Basel / Art Unlimited in Basel in June, and is currently included in “Painter, Painter” at the Walker Art Center (Minneapolis, MN). Recent solo and two-person museum exhibitions include “Gas... Telephone... One Hundred Thousand Rubles,” Kunsthalle Düsseldorf (Düsseldorf, Germany) and “Concentrations 54: Matt Connors and Fergus Feehily,” Dallas Museum of Art (Dallas, TX).
Robert HEINECKEN (1931-2006) will be represented by works from throughout his career, including the beguiling 3-part photo- emulsion on canvas work, "Untitled July 1974" (1974), which has not been seen since its original exhibition in 1974. Heinecken's work is the subject of a solo exhibition in March 2014 at the Museum of Modern Art (New York). His 1980s slide projection masterpiece, "Surrealism on TV" (1986) will be on view at Cherry and Martin’s Art Basel / Art Feature presentation. Select works by Robert Heinecken will be included in "The Photographic Object 1970," opening at Le Consortium (Dijon, France) July 3.
Robert OVERBY (1935-1993) will be represented by several works, including the remarkable cut plywood ACX work, "Clap" (1975) and the late 70s painting, "T-Zone" (1977). Neither work has been seen in Europe. Robert Overby's touring retrospective opens at the Centre d'Art Contemporain in Geneva in January 2014 and tours to the Galleria d'Arte Moderna e Contemporanea in Bergamo in April 2014. Overby's 'red book' (1969-1973) -- works from which were the subject of Cherry and Martin's 2012 FIAC booth -- will be reissued by JRP Ringier in the fall of 2013.
Amanda ROSS-HO will exhibit a number of works, including the major canvas piece, "Partial White Goddess #5 Re-Enactment (SOME CATS ARE MORE VOCAL THAN OTHERS)," which appeared in the exhibition, "Banquet of the Black Jackal" at the Luckman Art Museum, Los Angeles. Amanda Ross-Ho will have a solo project in July at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago. Recent solo and group museum exhibitions include "TEENY TINY WOMAN" at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles in 2012; "UNTITLED NOTHING FACTORY" (Visual Arts Center, Austin, TX); "Free" (New Museum, NY); "New Photography 2010" (Museum of Modern Art, NY); "Image Transfer" (Henry Art Gallery, Seattle, WA) and "2008 Whitney Biennial" (Whitney Museum of American Art, NY).
