Anthony Cudahy / Nick Van Zanten at the Dawn Hunter Gallery. September 12th - October 4th, 2015.
Statement about my paintings for the show:
A figure echoed and “twin"ned proliferates across a landscape. Images persist, transform, and assert themselves. The Expulsion. Snyder’s dogs on the hunt. A photograph discarded, some record of a camping trip, found blown down Underhill and Bergen. Several moments from a wedding on a hill in California, captured on film in the ‘70s. Histories personal and universal are leveled by the surface and the paint. There’s a feeling of perpetuity or at least of time-extending in these paintings, but that’s only one of many lies the medium is built upon.
