Lazy Susan Gallery is pleased to present "Drawings for New York" by Fabian Freese.
"Drawings for New York" marks the beginning of a new series of light paintings by a traveling artist who follows the migrating site and maps it throughout his work.
The global trace for Fabian Freese is a significant theme that involves the introduction of art compositions made in previous locations while creating new work within the city of exhibition. The artist brings one site to another as he continues to move through framework and context.
"Drawings for New York" presents light paintings from the "Blocked Daylight Series" (2015) the "Minimal Paintings Series" (2015) the "Movements Series" (2015) and "The Wheelchair Series." (2014) Throughout the latter Freese addresses how societies continue to perceive people with disabilities as well as different cultural backgrounds such as race and religion. “All people are worth the same regardless of the differences,” states the artist. “We are all one.”
This exchange between past and present is amplified by a public performance at Brooklyn Bridge Park on Saturday, April 30th from 8:30pm to 10pm, where Freese will create new light paintings of New York City to then appear in upcoming exhibitions around the world.
