per-son-age / persenij (noun)    A person (often used to express their significance, importance, or elevated status)

Per-son-age is an exhibition of videos in which the artist is the primary performer.  Historically artists such as Bruce Nauman, Adrian Piper, Hannah Wilke and Nayland Blake to name a few, have performed in “person” in their videos.  This exhibition presents video where the artist is central to the work, serving as translator or interpreter of the world in which we live.  The artist’s actions reveal process, depict rituals, express something profound or abstract and expose systems at work.

June 13, 2011 — Famous Accountants is delighted to present Unidentified, an exhibition of new work by Shanna Maurizi. This is her first solo show in New York.

Unidentified is a rumination on biology, science fiction and genetics. Aggressively cutting, scraping, or obscuring the surface of her photographs, Maurizi attempts to rupture images of natural history museums, research labs, and curiousity cabinets. Neon colors leak through incisions and crust around the edges of floating shapes, a reference to the fluorescent dyes used to mark DNA in transgenic animals. Research labs full of vaguely threatening machinery erupt in multicolored lights or murky insect swarms. The photographs themselves, neutral but sharply observed, are an attempt to index the slippage between constructed knowledge and its subject, which never seems to hold still.

Shanna Maurizi lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. She earned an MFA from California College of the Arts, and BA in Photography from San Francisco State. Her photographic work has been exhibited at Observatory, White Box, Gallery 825 in Los Angeles, Santa Monica Museum of Art, The Lab in San Francisco, and Rotterdam Kunsthal, among others. She had her first solo show at Gallery 825.

Matthew Miller

the magic black of an open barn door on a really sunny summer day,
when you just cannot see into it

April 30 – June 5, 2011

Opening Reception: Saturday, April 30, 7–10 PM

April 23, 2011 — Famous Accountants is pleased to present Matthew Miller: the magic black of an open barn door on a really sunny summer day, when you just cannot see into it, on view from April 30 to June 5, 2011. Five of Miller’s iconoclastic self-portraits will be on display.

“Unsurprisingly, given the evident meticulousness of his paintings, Miller works slowly and deliberately, and may return to a single painting again and again over the course of several months to perfect a single crucial line. Enthralling results reward the painstaking effort. Miller’s work exudes what I would call the drama of subtlety. In two small self-portraits, for example, visually minuscule divergences – the adjustment of an angle here, a brushstroke there – yield alter-egos in quite stark opposition: one vulnerable and probably gentle, the other impervious and latently threatening. As with his previous work, the depthlessly opaque background in these paintings serves to focus the viewer all the more tightly on the figures themselves and to anchor their qualities in space and time. In Matthew Miller’s art, whether he looks inward or outward, both heart and precision flourish.”
— Jonathan Stevenson

Matthew Miller was raised as a Mennonite in rural  Pennsylvania.

Opened in October 2009, Famous Accountants is a Bushwick gallery that has been written about in the Art in America, New York Times, Brooklyn Rail, L Magazine, Village Voice, New York Press, Time Out New York, BushwickBK, Hrag Vartanian, Bloggy, and Brooklyn Based. Organized by Famous Accountants Matthew Miller: the magic black of an open barn door on a really sunny summer day, when you just cannot see into it is the twelfth exhibition at the space.
