Ed. Varie is pleased to present, and welcome, California based artist Ryan De La Hoz and Australian based artist Riley Payne, for a two-person show, Leisure Time, with opening reception Thursday July 18 from 6-9pm.
The exhibition Leisure Time is loosely and ironically based around the ideas and actions how we as a culture, population, modern or antiquated; spend our leisure, or extra time. De La Hoz and Payne are brought together from opposite ends of the world, not knowing what the other has been creating, and encouraged to work individually. Leisure Time is a serendipitous experiment in black and white, and color.
Ryan De La Hoz, born 1985 and is currently based in San Francisco, California. He is a former recipient of the Canson/Beautiful Decay Wet Paint Grant 2011, and his work has been published in FLJ Magazine, Tokyo; Museums Press, UK; IdN Magazine, Hong Kong; and Beautiful/Decay, US. De La Hoz has shown in select group exhibitions in San Francisco and Los Angeles. Leisure Time will be his first show at Ed. Varie and also in New York.
Riley Payne was born 1979 in Melbourne, Australia, where he currently lives and works. Payne has exhibited widely in Australia, and has a recently published book, Mad Deep Thoughts, published by Perimeter Books. Leisure Time will be Payne’s first exhibit at Ed. Varie, and also in the United States. Payne’s project has been supported by the Victorian Government through Arts Victoria.
Press Release HERE
Much of Robarts’ work issues from what he calls his “continuous exploration of the transformational effects of time”—be it his paintings of melting cubes or popsicles, or his sculptures comprising objects of urban life that he finds around the city and reclaims. Through it all, he reveals what happens during the recess of time between a given now and a not-too-distant then. indeed, the very word recess is particularly resonant for Robarts. This is evident not only in his selection of the term as the title of his current exhibition at Secret 16, but also in his duel investigation and exploitation of the term’s manifold definitions in the work he here presents.
Robarts’ exhibit comprises two discrete scraps of chain-link fencing mounted on a wall, which he discovered lying unused near his studio in Brooklyn, New York. The empty spaces between the fences’ wire-netting are inlayed with a motley of balls—tennis, bouncy, base-, and so on—which spill out onto the floor below. Robarts collected these from the parks and playgrounds around his studio as well, picking them up and prizing them for their one-time, now-exhausted significance.
