Daniel Gerwin (MFA '08) in Exhibition at Gallery 817, University of the Arts, Opening September 1st

Daniel Gerwin (MFA '08) will have a solo exhibition titled "Memory Machine" at the University of the Arts, Gallery 817. Gerwin's creative process includes a degree of precision, balanced by an embrace of paint's liquidity and inherent resistance to control. He is interested in representation without illusion, which he pursues through an exploration of the relationship between mimesis and abstraction. The work presented in "Memory Machine" results from a year-long meditation on the death of a beloved relative. Over the past year, Gerwin has approached his studio practice as a personal variation on the Jewish tradition of saying Kaddish, a daily memorial prayer that one recites for eleven months after the death of a parent. In making this work, Gerwin has arrived at his own understanding of the Afterlife.
