Robin Rose at the Second Street Gallery

Hemphill announces Robin Rose's solo exhibition, Crescendo, at the Second Street Gallery in Charlottesville, VA.

Crescendo addresses the mythical and mystical subtext of popular musical culture. Rose is best known for his encaustic paintings, but he also achieved some success in the 1980s as a member of the band the Urban Verbs, a frequent performer at CBGB’s and the 930 Club. His recent artwork, however, marks a shift away from the two dimensional. Consisting largely of assembled works, these recent “sculptures” use, and subvert, the technology of rock and pop music such as speakers, amplifiers, and instruments themselves. The installation at Second Street Gallery will also include four new paintings.
