Brian Gaman: Vanishing Point at the Parrish Art Museum
Parrish Perspectives is a series of concentrated exhibitions that offers the Museum opportunities to respond spontaneously and directly to unique ways of thinking about art, artists, and the creative process.
Beginning in the mid-1970s Brian Gaman embarked on a highly personal exploration on the nature and process of seeing. His ambiguous sculptures rest on the border between industrial cast-offs and intricate, almost magical machines. Enigmatic, large-scale works on paper suggest physical form that has somehow evaporated into the mist. In all his work, Gaman sought to express a visual language that is seductive and unknowable. Fleeting and captivating, Gaman’s art implies that emotionally compelling meaning can be teased from even the simplest of visual gestures. Vanishing Point features a survey selection of the artist’s signature series, giving Museum visitors a portal into his creative process.
