Brooklyn based artist James Hyde exhibits at David Risley Gallery
Foreground and background, photography and painting, site and non-site, figure and ground—these oppositions are the literal and conceptual structure of James Hyde’s paintings on photographic images.

COPENHAGEN.- David Risley Gallery announces an exhibition of new works by Brooklyn based artist James Hyde.

Foreground and background, photography and painting, site and non-site, figure and ground—these oppositions are the literal and conceptual structure of James Hyde’s paintings on photographic images. An influential but under-recognized figure in New York and Brooklyn’s art scene, for the last twenty years Hyde has made work that advances the sometimes-exhausted inheritance of American postwar abstraction. He takes as seriously the formalist nihilism of Clement Greenberg’s negations as the eccentric idiosyncrasies of its practitioners. He uses the flat field of painting as a topological arena that ties together the physical substance of painting and the ground on which it is laid, extracting spatial dimensions and new meanings from this relationship. Hyde has investigated the abstract gesture in relationship to photography since 2003, when he began a series of nearly accidental works on photographic images made with an inkjet printer. In these increasingly direct works, he utilizes abstraction to break photography’s semantic hold on the way we construct an image of the world. As opposed to the work of West Coast artists such as John Baldessari, whose juxtaposition of photography and abstraction exists in play and in sync with mass media, Hyde’s opposition of the extreme surface “realism” of digital photography, placed against the colors of his abstract shapes, snaps photography into place, making it a site, a location, naturalizing it as a pictorial fact, while reframing the question of the truthfulness of photography. ---Excerpt from Ground, An Interview with James Hyde By Lucía Sanromán.
