Anya Tish Gallery presents Garland Fielder: "Neveroddoreven" opening reception
Anya Tish Gallery will present "Neveroddoreven," an exhibition featuring recent paintings and installations by Houston-based artist Garland Fielder. The artist initiates a meditative state of associations during his third solo exhibition with the gallery.
Fielder references the balanced nature of his work by using a palindrome as the exhibition’s title. "Neveroddoreven" hints at the symmetry and reflection to be discovered. At the heart of the exhibition resides an enduring fascination with the psychology behind various tests of interpretation, such as Rorschach ink blots. While those references are not literally transposed into the art, one can begin to elucidate reflected symmetries hiding in various ensembles through a meditative viewing of the entire exhibition as an installation.
Large diptychs alluding to ancient Mesoamerican ballgame courts share the gallery with sculptural installations. Truss forms reconstructed and repurposed into way-finding contraptions echo astrological configurations in their wake. Fielder places the viewer into a physical space that will instigate an internal dialogue born of mystery and monument.
The Gallery will also present a special performance on the evening of the opening by composer and performance artist Gerritt Wittmer. An original work conceived in conjunction with the exhibition will be performed live.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through March 16.
