Andrew Brischler: Monster
June 12 @ 10:00 am - August 14 @ 6:00 pm
The convergence of meaning and memory is the foundation for a new body of work by the Brooklyn-based artist Andrew Brischler. Monster features a selection of works on paper, each presenting a unique depiction of the word MONSTER. Composed almost entirely of colored pencil on uniformly sized sheets of drawing paper, the works vary widely in style and composition; some letters trail long dribbles of bright yellow, reminiscent of hastily sprayed aerosol paint, while others waver within queasy, radiating haloes of deep green and peach. Brischler has produced an immersive experience for his fifth exhibition with GAVLAK, enveloping the viewer in a cocoon of drawings that wrap the gallery’s walls. Monster opens June 12 and will be on view through August 14 within GAVLAK Los Angeles’s project space. To accompany the works in the exhibition, Andrew Brischler has published a limited-edition artist book, the second of an ongoing series, which is available for free.
