Garvey|Simon presents J Ivcevich: Trail of Mystics in collaboration with Creative Tech Week

Friday, May 11th, 2018

Garvey|Simon is pleased to present J Ivcevich: Trail of Mystics, an immersive, multimedia exhibition showcasing the artist’s most recent paintings, sculptures, ceramics and sound design. Trail of Mystics reaches across temporal, cultural, and technological boundaries to create an experience of timelessness and quietude. By converging these oppositional forces, Ivcevich excavates a space for the present.

Ivcevich points to the artifacts of global urban environments as the inspiration for Trail of Mystics. The painting, Mosaic Diptych, 2018, (pictured above) encapsulates his interest in time and meditation. Drawing from images of tattered street advertisements whose strata peek through one another, Ivcevich begins by manipulating his canvas’ surface with tie-dye and silkscreen techniques. The found imagery taken from the shredded advertisements is then put through a process of layering and compositional reduction, mimicking the accumulation of the source material and creating a pictorial historical document. The reductive quality of Ivcevich’s patterning lends a tranquility to the paintings. The work is at once old and new, chaotic and meditative.

Exhibition closes on June 9th.

Garvey|Simon is pleased to present Daisy Craddock: Summer Produce, an exhibition of oil pastel diptychs fresh from the studio, by Daisy Craddock. Her subjects’ flavors and fragrances can be sensed right away, and though these works appear to be minimalist squares of color from a distance, they are decidedly realist in nature. With skin on the left and flesh on the right, the diptychs display a subtle yet detailed complexity that is created from layers of scumbled and polished oil pastels and oil sticks. Whether from a farmstand upstate or a neighboring city deli, the fleeting nature of each edible specimen is palpable in Craddock’s delicate surfaces.
