Tony de los Reyes: Border Theory
http://grandcentralartcenter.com/ArtGallery_gcartgallery.php
September 1 through November 14, 2012
The Border Theory paintings combine two “orders” – abstract painting and the border that separates Mexico and the United States. Their relationship concerns components that are inherent in each: the demarcation of space through a conceptual framework, and its resulting material manifestation. Both systems rely on a combination of organic and inorganic materials and processes. The border itself can be addressed as site of politicized abstraction. It also utilizes specific materials and processes to organize otherwise incoherent space.  The Rio Grande, a geological, natural boundary that dominates the eastern portion of the border, turns abruptly into a geometric bifurcation on the western half of the border. This push and pull of “landscape” and “border,” which is inherent in topographical mapping, also happens to be the most significant occupation of abstract painting.  This solo exhibition will mark the premiere of de los Reyes new body of work.

Constantin Hartenstein: Event Horizon
http://grandcentralartcenter.com/ArtGallery_Project.php
September 1 through October 14, 2012
Grand Central Art Center Artist in Residence, Constantin Hartenstein (b. 1982, Herzberg, former GDR), is an installation and video artist living and working in Berlin and New York. His works deal with personalized appearances of spaces within the context of displacement, settlement and fast forward consumer culture.  During his residency, Hartenstein will create new work that will be presented in a solo exhibition.

Erin Morrison: Meditative Action
http://grandcentralartcenter.com/ArtGallery_Rental.php
September 1 through October 14, 2012
Morrison’s recent body of work is a culmination of paintings ranging from what some might consider surrealistic landscape to magic realism, with slight experimentation in minimalism. The intent of the work is to reach beyond the dictum of paintings history through the categorization of genre, and to explore the identifiable borders established by the institution of studio practice. They portray a sense of loss or misunderstanding, as well as a feeling of upheaval, revealing the displacement that comes with living a somewhat nomadic life.
