Exhibition by Andrea Bergart, Benjamin Edmiston, and Jason Karolak to open at Cuevas Tilleard Projects
Jason Karolak, Untitled (P-1435), 2014.

NEW YORK, NY.- Cuevas Tilleard Projects presents Painting Problems , an exhibition of work by Andrea Bergart, Benjamin Edmiston, and Jason Karolak.

This exhibition brings together three artists who invest their everyday contemporary painting performance with a selfconscious modernist attitude. By deliberately calling attention to the inevitable limits and flatness of their canvases, Bergart, Edmiston, and Karolak ask the viewer to appreciate and focus on the act of painting itself.

Painting Problems highlights trouble-making as an essential value and attitude to the ever developing conversation around painting and to the tradition of the medium itself. At work in their studio, Bergamot, Edmiston, and Karolak carefully define a set of rules, constructing boundaries and barriers. Yet as soon as these structures are in place, each artist willfully works to break what they created.

Spatial ambiguity, mark-making strategies, and the routine (continual) ambition to try to create depth on a flat surface are - for all three of them - nothing but a starting point. And while their conceptual or formal narratives exist in total isolation, Bergart, Edmiston, and Karolak share a common optimism for the possibilities of the medium itself. They are using painting as a playful and dynamic form of self-expression, rather than a medium to achieve absolute truth. If any sense of truth arises, it is their individual commitment to the everyday performance of painting.

Painting Problems , in the end, might not be so much about finding neither absolute or provisional solutions but exploring personal ways of expression in an ever flattening contemporary cultural landscape.

The artists will be present for an opening reception on Thursday, March 26 from 6:30 to 9:30 PM.

Cuevas Tilleard Projects is an independent pop-up gallery platform created by Anna Maria Cuevas and Caroline Tilleard to support and promote the work of emerging contemporary artists.
