440 Gallery is proud to present Heaven And Earth, a solo show by multi-faceted artist Fred Bendheim. This is the artist’s fourth solo show at the gallery, and will run from February 6 through March 10, 2019. The exhibition highlights Bendheim’s large-scale constructions, works on paper, and shaped paintings, all created during the past three years. Distinctive pieces that Bendheim refers to as Shapings—paintings on shaped wood and PVC board—will be featured in this show. Bendheim has used this format of shaped or non-rectangular paintings for over ten years. He enjoys the freedom to make work that is filled with unlimited expression, yet he still maintains a controlled compositional method for structural integrity. Also on display are new cut-paper pieces made during a 2018 artist residency in Costa Rica. These colorful works on paper have a playful exuberance and explore Bendheim’s philosophical speculations on nature, work/play and of being alive in the 21st century.
The Project Space will feature work by Ellen Chuse, Shanee Epstein and Amy Weil.
