Schumacher Gallery, The Absolutes Exhibition by Daric Gill

A few days ago, The Absolutes opened at the Schumacher Gallery among giants like Warhol, Chagall, Nevelson, Picasso, and Calder. Also debuting with The Absolutes are 5 new sculptures made from small found objects used in my paintings; arranged much like how they’d exist during an in-studio painting session. Rich with symbols, each artwork feeds off the others in the exhibition. Now they reach into the three dimensions  through these found-objects artifacts.

Flanking The Absolutes is a wide array of African, Inuit, Asian, and European artwork spanning over 2,000 years. All works are part of a massive donor-based museum collection.

Exhibition Dates:
January 15, 2018 – March 28, 2018
(Please note: The gallery is closed February 24 – March 4 during mid-term break.)

“Absolute: Totality” Painting Explores Duality of Opposites

The whole of something

The moment or duration of total obscuration of the sun or moon during an eclipse

“Absolute: Totality”, Oil paint on panel. 40” x40”. 12.16.17.

On August 21, 2017 a collective population of millions stopped what they were doing and made their way outside. There was no national holiday to celebrate, no overly-hyped sports event, and no national tragedy to honor. For the first time in modern history, the United States saw a total eclipse whose shadow passed through 14 contiguous states. The last time an eclipse passed through the entire width of the country was 99 yrs ago. For the hours leading up to this 160 seconds, our society lived outside. We took notice of the sky. And in doing so, we took notice in ourselves. Absolute: Totality is an exploration into that grey area between being whole and being obstructed.
