Like A Thief In The Night: Justin Brice

Overview
Art can give us new ways to see and understand the complex world around us, and in doing so, it can become a positive force for social and political change.
 
 

We are proud to announce Justin Brice’s new exhibition, Like A Thief In The Night. His sober environmental works pleasantly clash with the second part of the show, an exhibition of antique furniture redesigned by Toiletpaper (Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari).

 

This summer, temperatures have risen to a shocking 37 degrees. Global warming is one of the urgent environmental disasters that Justin Brice addresses with his art, so this exhibition could not be more aptly timed. "Art can give us new ways to see and understand the complex world around us, and in doing so, it can become a positive force for social and political change.”​ Justin Brice collaborates with philosophers, scientists, and journalists to develop a more informed, holistic, ontological world view. In doing so, his art has become a research practice to investigate the world, and forge a deeper understanding of important ecological issues of our time. "Extraction, agriculture, consumption and the subsequent meltdown of our planet... The Anthropocene is when the science fiction section is moved into the current affairs section of the book store and library!"

 

Justin Brice developed a unique transdisciplinary art practice, working in collaboration with philosophers, scientists, and journalists to develop a more informed, holistic, ontological world view. In doing so, his art has become a research practice to investigate the world, and forge a deeper understanding of important ecological issues  of our time.  

 

Justin Brice began flying on NASA science missions over Greenland to gather imagery that would become raw materials for his art. A five meter large printer at his studio applies acrylic ink to surfaces in a painterly manner. Guariglia's photographic images incorporate traditional art materials like gesso and precious metals including copper, gold, and platinum that have been abraded with power tools.

 

The work of Justin Brice belongs to several museum collections, including the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; the Norton Museum of Art, Florida; the Spurlock Museum, Illinois; and the Vanden Heuvel Collection, New York. His photographs are published in SmithsonianThe New York Times and National Geographic.
