ADVANCED GEOCHROMATIC STUDIES
Jason Urban and Leslie Mutchler

January 16 - May 23, 2021

OPENING EVENT: Friday, February 5, 2021 | 5 - 8 PM

 

As a fictive academic course, Advanced Geochromatic Studies is part of an open-ended inquiry into color and its representation in science, pseudo-science, and the spiritual. This series of improvisational compositions on handmade paper utilizes color theory, aesthetics, optics, and poetry culled from local academic institutions. These components are collaged with collected geological debris from various sites. In addition to collage, bars of linen pulp paint have been applied through stencils as a provisional color key. The arrangement of these disparate artifacts and sources becomes a metaphor for interdisciplinary study, wherein students gain proficiency in the historic and contemporary concepts of Geochromatics. As part of a larger curricular sequence, the Advanced Geochromatic Studies explores both rational and irrational applications of color in the context of historical precedence and speculative interpretation. Special emphasis is placed on geological matter as it pertains to the physicality of color.  

JULMstudios is a collaboration between Jason Urban & Leslie Mutchler. Working in Brooklyn, their practice is project-based and research-intensive. They employ an art practice of pseudo bibliology through the study of books, printing & publishing. Their projects investigate the  evolving meaning of printed matter and the “sacred spaces” it occupies, always aware of the  increasingly common shift from analog to digital technologies in our day to day. 

Their work has recently been exhibited at NARS Foundation (Brooklyn, NY), The Print Center  (Philadelphia, PA), Center for Fine Print Research (Bristol, England), and SPACE Gallery  (Portland, ME). Urban and Mutchler have participated in residencies in Basel (Switzerland), Cork  (Ireland), Pittsburgh (USA), and more. Urban and Mutchler are currently Dieu Donne 2020  Workspace Residents.

APPEARANCES -Group exhibition Collaboration with Lauren E. Peters

APPEARANCES
Group exhibition
Collaboration with Lauren E. Peters

January 16 - April 25, 2021

Opening Event:

Friday, February 5, 2021 | 5 - 8 PM during first Friday

As part of The Delaware Contemporary's 2021 Winter/Spring exhibition series, studio artist Lauren E. Peters selected a group of artists to collaborate with by reimagining her signature body of self-portrait work. Peters describes painting self-portraits as an isolating experience with an imagined audience. "I've always encouraged the viewer to attempt to see themselves and each other differently, but in the moment it's hard to look past all the images of a single person using a singular style of painting."

For this exhibition, Peters' asked a selection of respected and admired artists to create their interpretation of her 2016 piece self-portrait (orange), using the painting itself for inspiration and/or the source photo. This collaboration will transform the portrait with different hands and unique styles. "We critically judge each other on appearances, and I organized this group to break this one singular idea into layers reflective of the many ways we could choose to see ourselves and each other."

Lauren E. Peters became a studio artist at The Delaware Contemporary in 2015, hoping to return to oil painting after an extended hiatus and began painting self-portraits. In 2018 Peters was awarded the Emerging Artist fellowship from the Delaware Division of the Arts. She holds a BA in Visual Arts and has kept up with her studies at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art.

COLLABORATING ARTISTS:
Dennis Beach, Katee Boyle, Monika Bullette, Joe del Tufo, Brandan Henry, Rick Hidalgo, M.K. Komins, Max Levenson, Jenna Lucente, Chloe McEldowney, Adam Montgomery, Lauren Peters, Shawn Baron Pinckney, Bonaia Rosado, Terrance Vann, and TJ Walsh
