• The Proposition was pleased to participate in the first annual CONTEXT art miami.  Our Booth (D32)  presented three gallery artists: Dane Patterson, Lee Vanderpool and Balint Zsako.

    We featured “APPETITE,” Balint Zsako’s first and only monumentally-scaled work with accompanying works from this delightful series of watercolor and ink drawings which sold to a trustee of an important midwest Museum. Zsako’s work from this series will also be featured in the upcoming publication by PHAIDON, VitaminD2, a global survey of drawing today featuring over 100 top emerging artists.

    From Dane Patterson’s most recent show “Again, and again, and again…” we presented a small group of intricately detailed graphite on paper drawings in his signature style. To quote Patterson, “My working process has always had a certain obsessive quality. Photorealistic graphite drawings, which have for a while now been my primary medium, require hours of careful and detailed rendering. My recent turn to repetition as content brings to my work a parallel, if somewhat muted, obsessive quality to the subject matter.”

    From Lee Vanderpool, who premiered his first solo NYC show this season, we exhibited a fantastic sampling of freshly completed works. Vanderpool speaks of his work, “…color acts as a stage, a ground from which paint and “I ” ( a visual element made by a dot and a stroke) play out non-objective narratives, underwritten by fetishes, pleasures and anxieties. “I” is the subjective metaphor in the work. This confluence creates an environment for color to mediate sensations and feeling, and become a space for visual meditation.
