Jeremy Gilbert-Rolfe (4 May - 3 June, 2006)
Gray Kapernekas Gallery, New York

Gilbert-Rolfe’s critical writings on painting and abstraction have been influential for the past few decades, informing discourse around beauty and the role of painting in a post-Modern context. “I was asked recently what my writing about art and associated matters has to do with my painting,” says Gilbert-Rolfe, “and I said that since the 1980s I’ve been writing about the same forces that my painting tends to be about: beauty rather than brutality, attractiveness rather than argument.


Manuel Ocampo (24 March - 29 April, 2006)
Gray Kapernekas Gallery, New York

Best known for his re-evalution of Colonial painting, Ocampo consistently incorporates sacred and secular imagery, political symbolism, and high/low cultural icons. Using imagery from art historical, religious, and political sources, Ocampo's pictures are Gothic and disturbing, iconic and provocative.


George and Martha (9 February - 18 March, 2006)
Karen Finley

Gray Kapernekas Gallery, New York

Known primarily for her performance art and writing, Finley will exhibit a large group of over 200 drawings based on her performance and forthcoming book, George and Martha, a satirical portrait of Martha Stewart and George Bush and their all-consuming love affair, extending her interest in narrative form and gender archetypes.

David Cabera (5 January - 4 February, 2006)
Gray Kapernekas Gallery, New York

This exhibition by David Cabrera featured new works on paper and photography by David Cabrera. Taking visual cues from Modernism’s legacies of abstraction and documentary-style photography, Cabrera transforms personal history with theories of identity politics. Cabrera’s work poetically questions how families and social fabrics are constructed and regenerated in culture-at-large, through serialized form, hand-crafted process, and color.


167 (14 October - 12 November, 2005)
Linda Matalon

Gray Kapernekas Gallery, New York

"167", a new body of large-scale works on paper. Linda Matalon is renown for her ongoing commitment to expanding a post-Minimalist vocabulary through her subtle works on paper and sculpture. Drawing on legacies of Modernism, including Agnes Martin, Gego, Eva Hesse, Barnett Newman, Blinky Palermo, and Cy Twombly, Matalon’s new work reinforces her commitment to pus hing the boundaries of process, material and abstraction.

Sounds Like the Sound of Music
Bruce Yonemoto

9 September - 9 October, 2005
Gray Kapernekas Gallery, New York

Sounds Like The Sound of Music draws from two distinct and seemingly unrelated Hollywood film classics, George Lucas’ Star Wars trilogy and Robert Wise’s 1965 musical, The Sound of Music. Both films express Hollywood’s associations to political narratives of their times: The Sound of Music dramatized Post-War nostalgia for European ideals at the dawn of the Nazi regime; and Star Wars depiction of "good vs. evil” ethos surrounding the final years of the Cold-War era.

Appropriation (24 June - 30 July, 2005)
Gray Kapernekas Gallery, New York

With a nod to Sturtevant and Sherrie Levine’s landmark artworks, which opened critical dialogue on male authorship, the exhibition showcased three strategies of appropriation taken by three women artists in the last three decades: Gretchen Bender, Deborah Kass, and Mary Ellen Strom.

Kay Rosen (6 May - 18 June, 2005)
Gray Kapernekas Gallery, New York

This exhibition of new works by Kay Rosen included paintings, works on paper, and a wall installation, which highlighted the artist's ongoing interest in the visual manifestations of language. Rosen, was trained as a linguist before embarking on a 30 year career as an artist. Combining the aesthetics of Pop and Minimalism with a sense of humor, Rosen's palindromes, anagrams, double entendres and rhymes transform words and sentences into messages and images, often with a witty and topical sociopolitical edge.
