New Discretions is pleased to present Hold the Horizon Close, a group exhibition of recent works by Paul Gabrielli, LoVid and Agathe Snow. This is a collaboration with Marquee Projects in Bellport, NY. Together, we live in landscapes. The sun rises. The sun sets on all. There is forever a future in the distance. The horizon still divides earth from sky, pasts from possibilities. With this universal truth recognized, Hold the Horizon Close shares the work two artists and one collective, all expanding on the sincerity of landscape. Paul Gabrielli has made a career of trompe l’oeil sculptures, each composed of “everyday objects” that are themselves a combination of altered, manipulated, and meticulous hand-made elements. Recent work has focused on shelves that would be found in and around the home. These humble forms serve as both domestic signifiers and literal horizons. His most recent additions to the series introduce fabricated ombré “packaging” for the sculptures—a faux hanging device—invoking first and last light. Though LoVid are known for employing analog electronic feedback as the source of their visual output, this snared energy often takes physical form, and they are increasingly embedding nature into their signal. Presented here are a continuation of their “paintings”—melding terrain and technology through craft, creating lush hyperspaces which offer both confusion and comfort. Also present are abstract works on paper taken straight from the voltaic, making solid the bandwidths in which we live. Breaking from her well-established sculpture and performance practices, Agathe Snow presents a series of intimate paintings, Layers between Earth and Sky, begun at a residency at the Elaine de Kooning House. Confident, simple gestures on board trace the seasons. Two collages on paper (hand made by Snow) also provide a more chaotic celebration of color and line. The horizon remains throughout.
