Jake McCord Gallery

Paintings from the Porch: Works by Jake McCord
On view Jan. 12 - May 4, 2024
Opening Reception: Jan. 11 at 6 p.m.

Jake McCord (1945 - 2009) of Thomson, Georgia grew up planting and picking crops on his family's farm. He later cut grass and drove a truck for that city, which recognized him as an exceptionally hard worker. 在20世纪80年代中期,麦考德开始绘画,并从他的生活和家中同时运行的几台电视机中获得灵感. 他在自家的前廊上摆放了一些画作,让过路人观赏,只有在觉得这些画作被陈列了足够长的时间后才允许出售. McCord described his depictions of people, animals, and scenes as jolly, 是什么帮助他陪伴,他希望能帮助那些看到他作品的人. 这次展览展出了许多门廊上那些令人愉快的画.

Opening Reception: Thursday, Jan. 11 at 6 p.m.

“Culling through thousands of individual photographs and videos I make of architecture and landscaping; I digitally assemble these sources to create my work. Some images have veracity, but more often, 他们提出了一种视觉夸张——围绕一个小物体或细节进行点缀的场景. 我一直着迷于摄影作为存在证据的能力——创造看似真实的图像——同时, a system to mediate and construct reality. 我用摄影来观察,然后将我的照片以数字方式组合起来,构建不存在的空间, allowing the creation of images that, through metaphor and illusion, 揭示我们周围和摄影本身的欲望和拟像.”

Art from Guantánamo Bay

RESCHEDULED Opening Reception Jan. 27, 6 - 8 p.m.

被称为Guantánamo Bay的美国军事战俘营的囚犯从他们到达的那一刻起就开始创作艺术. The Art from Guantánamo Bay exhibition features 101 of these evocative works, made by men held without trial, some for more than 15 years. 这六位艺术家包括现任(Moath Al Alwi和Ahmed Rabbani)和前任(Muhammad Ansi), Abdualmalik (Alrahabi) Abud, Sabri Al Qurashi, Mansoor Adayfi) detainees, none of whom have been charged with committing a crime.

展览中的大部分作品都是由被拘留者的律师在经历了艰难的搜索过程后,从Guantánamo上获得的, scanning, and analysis for hidden messages by Guantánamo officials. 印有“美国军队批准”字样的邮票表示这项工作已经通过, 而且邮票上的墨水经常会渗到背面的图像上, creating a ghostly mix of art and authority.

Art from Guantánamo Bay 包括素描、油画和雕塑,这些都是用少数允许被拘留者使用的材料制作的, including model ships made from shirt scraps, prayer caps, razors, and mops. 正如前囚犯曼苏尔·阿达菲(Mansoor Adayfi)在他的《澳门永利赌城注册登录入口》(New York Times)文章《澳门永利注册登录入口》中所解释的那样," the sea "means freedom that no one can control or own, freedom for everyone." Although detainees were held close to the sea, tarps blocked their view until they were removed for four days in 2014 in anticipation of a hurricane; after that, Adayfi recalls, "all of those who could draw made drawings about the sea."
