Announcing: DRIPPY Opening December 5, 2009

Posted in Noise by internanna on November 24, 2009

Famous Accountants Art Gallery is pleased to announce the opening reception for its second exhibition: Drippy on Saturday, December 5th from 6-10pm.

Drippy is a collaborative installation created by Ben Godward, Ellen Letcher and Kevin Regan. It was conceived by Letcher and Regan in a hypnagogic haze. The installation is comprised of blood-like drips on the walls of the gallery and site-specific floor sculptures by Godward.

We just decided to do it. We have no idea what we’re doing. We just make stuff. We want you to come and look at our stuff.

– Kevin Regan

Ben Godward employs plastic, rubber, found objects and urethane foam to create large, multi-colored combinations of gesture and form. On the surface, his sculptures resemble colorful abstract expressionistic paintings, but a closer look will reveal underlying themes of pop culture, ravenous consumption, even a suggestion of toxic waste. Godward exploits the viewers attraction to shiny, candy-colored objects, while simultaneously repulsing us with the endless cast-offs of our society.

Ellen Letcher. Repurposed content: ripped and regrouped, then reread in an altered state; to create accessible images via rich new media but not excluding actual paint and reproduced print.

Kevin Regan is an artist who lives and works in Brooklyn. The computer as both a tool and metaphor informs much of his art. Loops are a recurring figure in his work. He’s very intrigued by the massive surplus of information in our time.

Please join us on December 5th for art, artists, cookies and drinks!
