January 18th - February 22nd
This show marks a turning point for Jason Andrew Turner and Ryan Beck. Shortly after producing a group of twenty-five collaborative drawings together as a playful experiment, their work was immediately energized and allowed both artists to delve even further into the personal content of their own work while allowing a greater sense of clarity. This immediacy made them realize they both needed to make up for Lost Time.
Time itself is a relative bridge between the content of their work. Not only are they both bound by compulsiveness, but also in the vision, varied between linear and fourth-dimensional time and what binds the two. Beck’s paintings are full of color and energy, with a calmness that brings the viewer through wormholes of time and space, like an ever-moving river. Conversely, Turner’s drawings stand still, cutting the plane with a here/now, but buzzing with rhythm akin to tally marks on the wall of a prison cell. We are all victims to the perception of time; stuck against a clock that will never stop ticking, an intangible master that is a testament to our mortality.

Make no mistake; the plight of the female artist has certainly been a trying one over the course of history. Indeed, it has taken many, many years for male and female artists to coexist- at least from the standpoint of the mainstream, westernized canon.
All grievances aside, it is with happy hearts that we can say that today, these biases between the sexes seem to be dissipating significantly, if not altogether. "Ladylike: An All-Female Exhibition" is not a show of exclusionary connotations; rather it is one that simply celebrates lady artists in the here and now, and what their contributions ultimately mean for the future of the arts.
