Laying Tracks
New Work by Jason Falchook

Jason Falchook's photography has always examined our perception of the built world. He is particularly interested in exploring the human drive to organize space and create the illusion of control. His new work taps into these curiosities while suggesting a greater order outside of human dominance. The new work focuses on moments changed by light and the passage of time.  


Bordering on Painting
New Work by Seth Adelsberger

Baltimore-based artist SETH ADELSBERGER has taken a dramatic leap in his work since his 2009 solo exhibition "Semi-Final Frontiers" at Civilian. In that time he has pursued a curatorial path as co-director of Nudashank (a gallery in Baltimore run with his partner Alex Ebstein). Stepping back to see a bigger picture of how works thread into a greater whole, Adelsberger has departed from his signature vivid, sci-fi psychedelia based works to examine the mechanisms, literally and philosophically, behind painting.

Pursuing a more experimental process in the studio, Adelsberger released himself from constraints, particularly that of "creating worlds" on the canvas. Instead he focused on, according to the artist, "creating a body of work that references painting but in many cases doesn't involve painting directly." The new work deconstructs painting to its base elements - the structures, supports, formats, and materials.
