HESSE FLATOW is pleased to present bronzes, paintings, and works on paper by Carl D’Alvia and Jonathan Ryan. Both artists employ texture within their languages of abstraction. Enshrouded entirely in feathers or shaggy furs, D’Alvia’s sculptures complicate preconceived correlations between subject matter, form, and material composition, often placing them in ironic juxtapositions. On view at the gallery, Ryan’s works are covered with pulverized rocks and sand, portraying textural peaks and valleys that hearken to deposit mounds of quarries in addition to naturally occurring land formations.
