Remains to Be Seen: John Spinks

October 25, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 9:30 pm

TILLOU FINE ART will present REMAINS TO BE SEEN, a comprehensive solo presentation of painting, collages, and works on paper by Brooklyn-based artist JOHN SPINKS, opening October 25th 2017.  In this exhibition, John Spinks explores the mutable relationship between what we see and what we know. Joining musical notes, letters, and maps with geometric forms, he mines both personal and world history.  Many of the collages incorporate letters sent to the artist from his father. Written on onion skin paper, the letters appear like delicate memories floating to the surface, full of everyday musings and news.  Sometimes the text appears in small towers of words, creating fragile monuments to the vernacular.
