The Hole is proud to announce our first solo exhibition in Tribeca by Eric Shaw. His last solo show with us was cut short by the pandemic and was up when we went dark. A year later as we emerge from the haze and grow into a new second gallery space, we do so with joy and color and PURE MODE.
For this exhibition Shaw will exhibit ten vibrant new acrylic paintings throughout our new 1800 sq. ft. gallery. This body of work made during the fall and winter of pandemic times will bloom into spring on fresh walls at a fresh address! To go with our more modestly-sized space, and in accordance with our more delicate proportions, these paintings are petite and perfect. Mostly 2-3ft in size, the bulk of the show is not bulky: zippy with implied motion and exuberant in color activity, these paintings provide fresh exercise for your eyeballs.
Inventive shapes drawn from street signage, logos, biological diagrams and even his grandmother’s paintings, these canvases are pungent lozenges of activity. The artist chose “Pure Mode” to express his approach to painting “with no real plan and working through it with a natural instinct and knowledge of my own unconscious idiosyncrasies.” If you scan the QR code on the card you can hear the mix of new age and adult contemporary music that he listens to in the studio.
