Square Peg Gallery in Hastings-on-Hudson will host a public opening reception for rgbDRAWING: Pigment on Paper, an exhibit of new collaborative work by Creighton Michael and Ben Diep, on Saturday, November 5th, from 2pm to 5pm, at 385 Warburton Ave., Hastings-onHudson, NY. Michael and Diep will present an artist’s talk on Sunday Nov. 20th at 4.00pm, and the show will conclude with a closing reception on Sunday, December 18th, from 2pm to 5pm.
rgbDRAWING: Pigment on Paper is a unique collaboration between Creighton Michael and Ben Diep showcasing selections from eight recent series of digital drawings. This next generation of hybrid work uses a large digital format in a time capture process fusing gesture drawing and photography. Instead of capturing motion in sequential frames, as video does, all activity is recorded in one frame. In this new photographic work, corrupted image patterns from personal marking history as well as debris from my sculpture practice are used as drawing implements in a marking technique that incorporates aspects of puppetry with other stagecraft elements to expand the traditional boundaries of drawing.
Creighton Michael’s focus on “mark making” has taken him on a rich and varied artistic journey from painter, to sculptor, filmmaker and printmaker. Michael has numerous national and international solo shows to his name, and his works are in many prestigious collections, including those of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Cleveland Museum of Art, MoMA, The National Gallery, D.C., and the Hafnarborg Institute of Culture and Fine Art, Iceland. Michael is an active member of American Abstract Artists, and is well known in the art community, not only for his expansive body of work, but also for his generosity as an educator, mentor and promoter of the arts.
Ben Diep is a master printer, photographer and painter who is known for infusing a painterly quality into the photographic images he works with, both digital and analog. Diep has produced prints exhibited at numerous U.S. and international galleries and museums, including MoMA, NY and the Ludwig Museum, Cologne, Germany. Diep is co-founder of Square Peg Gallery, specializing in both emerging and mid career artists.
