Suspended is a state, a moment, some kind of disbelief, a stalemated gesture frozen in its own established conditions. Richard Galling’s paintings deconstruct and utilize marks and gestures within a framework of abstraction, proposing a new system of painted signs. Daniel Shea’s objects and installations examine the mythologies and histories of the post-industrial ruin and a perceived material authenticity. Together their work offers an interplay between an aesthetic and conceptual modernism and industrial modernity. As one history implicates another, their work shown together suspends multiple moments in aesthetic and political lineages.
