CRAIG REDMAN  |  Third Parties

One Grand Gallery is excited to present international designer and artist, Craig Redman’s Third Parties. For the month of May, One Grand will help facilitate Redman’s exploration of privacy and the shaping of one’s online legacy in our digital age. 

Hailing from Australia and working in New York City, Redman’s global influence has reached from Parisian superstores to Chengdu street installations. Redman’s design work reflects a bold, graphic, pared- down aesthetic that carries over into his artwork. He is particularly known for his portraiture that has included Barack Obama, Michelangelo Antonioni, Woody Allen and Lebron James. Redman also illustrates a cult hit blog called Darcel Disappoints

This May exhibition, Third Parties, will showcase Redman’s portraiture and comment on privacy in a media-saturated world. Redman grapples with how much of one's identity can be erased before a person's true self is masked or freshly created. The uniformly sized portraits of his friends and acquaintances represent a mini society that is then partially obscured with oversized graphic shapes, alluding to the question of how much of our personalities are abstracted and how much is revealed.

Redman addresses the current state of our online culture by lifting the mask of online anonymity. It's fundamentally a matter of authenticity and the power of the individual to shape one's own history. One Grand Gallery invites you to enter the matrix and explore the boundaries of identity in cyberspace.

Third Parties shows at One Grand May 1st - 30th

Opening reception Friday May 1st from 7pm - 10pm

MARIO GALLUCCI  |  Counterfeit Universe

Looking forward to April, One Grand Gallery presents Counterfeit Universe, a solo exhibition by Mario Gallucci

Counterfeit Universe is about the copy of a copy. It is about belief in surface, attitudes towards brands, our relation to objects, and a deep personal affection towards the mundane. Gallucci’s work looks at the human condition as it relates to surrounding objects. His process, a combination of photography, sculptural pattern-making, and recreation on a 1:1 scale, allows his sculptural photographs to operate in a liminal space between existence and representation. This casts even the mundane in a new light, questions their significance, symbology, value, and the relational affect on the human condition.

Like a magician pulling a rabbit out of a hat, an important part of Gallucci’s art relies on the impressions and reactions of the viewer. There will be tricks and illusions, but each is backed by a meditation on perception and reality, light-hearted wit, and meticulous craftsmanship. One Grand invites you to get lost in the world of Gallucci’s Counterfeit Universe, to judge both what you perceive, and how you perceive it.

Join us Friday, April 3rd at 7pm for the opening reception!
