Chase Wheeler: BUY/SELL @ 213 Bowery
October 11 – 13, 2019 | 10 am – 6 pm
Opening Reception: October 10, 2019 | 6 pm – 9 pm
GAG is pleased to present Chase Wheeler’s first solo show with the Gallery: BUY/SELL — a special format exhibition calling to question market formalities within today’s art world.
A self mockery in a way, the artworks of BUY/SELL have already been claimed, purchased, resold and now re-offered by the Gallery as investment opportunities. The paintings have been tweaked endlessly through a brazen layering of visual information. A confusing and hectic combination of photographic imagery, strictly formalist color and a de-skilled intermingling of automatic drawing are meant to prolong viewing time and keep the image afloat longer than a trending instagram post.
Chase Wheeler (b. 1995) is an artist working in Brooklyn, NY. He has worked with artists Emily Jacir and William Kentridge and holds a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design.
