Eric Sutphin blogs about the work of Kadar Brock and Matt Jones on view in the exhibition Evil Dead 2 at Horton Gallery, Berlin through March 30, 2012.
Sutphin writes that "Brock cannibalizes old endeavors (his canvases) and sands away layers leaving disjointed fragmentary bits of the paintings former self, revealing a kind of hollowed out other. Jones continues to mine cosmological and spiritual symbols and systems in his voluminous new paintings resembling nebulae or cosmological events. In Jones's Energy paintings, transparent passages of saturated color float in and through deep star-studded space. There is a hyper-activity of forms moving through the field but somehow the cacophony settles into paintings that are expansive and evoke a meditative silence."
