    By Michael Dodson

    This week, New York based gallery ACA Galleries will host a solo show of Canadian artist Joseph Peller (Canadian, 1953). This exhibit, entitled, Joseph Peller: Circadian Rhythms of the City, will display paintings, works on paper and sculpture that focus on ideas of isolation and the emotional ambivalence faced by those coexisting within the daily routines of the New York urban landscape. Specifically, Joseph Peller’s large scale oil on linen paintings of the city successfully capture those elements of confliction and the interplay between human congestion and architectural form.

    Joseph Peller’s oils depict highly complex painterly representations of architectural spaces and daily urban life. One such work titled, Skyline at Dusk, presents a realistic view of the New York skyline using his recognizable stylistic loose brushwork. He accentuates the crowded nature of the urban landscape by contrasting dark architectural shadows as the sun sets, with bright light emanating from the congested city streets and a central towering structure. The color palette utilized, which finds similarities to that used by Bellows or that of a more Modernist style, provides a romantic aesthetic element to the moment where the Circadian Rhythm of the city is most visible. Dusk displays the routine of the cities inhabitants returning home, only to be repeated with the new day. Circadian Rhythms are biological processes in which the balance of light and dark within habitable environments create a cycle or rhythm of function and successive periods of rest. Peller’s use of this idea to encompass the group of works is appropriate when coupled with an aesthetic representation of the natural and artificial stimulus within the urban landscape.

    Todd Hido, #10789-2109, Bruce Silverstein, New York, NY

    Also this week, New York based Bruce Silverstein Gallery is debuting the third solo show of original works by Todd Hido (American, 1968). The gallery will display several chromogenic prints from the American contemporary photographer’s series depicting the isolated and rural suburban architecture and landscape throughout Ohio, specifically the areas in which Hido spent his childhood. The exhibition will be held in conjunction with the publication of Hido’s most recent book, “Excepts from Silver Meadows.” (Nazraeli, 2013) This ‘fictionalized’ return to the Midwest is a reexamination of the suburban environments from the artist’s memory and is laden with melancholic and seemingly desolate spaces which provide a perfect contrast to the luminous and reflective aesthetic that is so richly detailed throughout each print.

    Todd Hido: Excerpts from Silver Meadows provides a cinematic approach and sequencing to the visual recollections of the artist’s childhood within suburban Ohio, a method perfected throughout the artist’s twenty five years of photographic experience. These recent works are increased in size, which provides a heightened evocation of the desolate landscapes and the feelings of loneliness within them, especially during the night. One specific work, #10789-2109, provides a glimpse through a rain spotted front car window onto an empty motel parking lot brightly illuminated by colorful yet blurred Christmas colored lights. The intensity of the lighting cutting through the darkness provides a welcoming and unthreatening offering to those in need of refuge from the rain.  The theme of anonymity throughout Hido’s series of unfocused and often blurred locations in Excerpts from Silver Meadows reveal an equally beautiful and poetic look upon the seemingly uninhabited landscape, hinting upon the idea that the artist’s feelings of nostalgia for his childhood environment actually exist.
