Gallery Scene: ‘We’re All Doomed’ Solo Exhibit At Bergamot Station
“We’re All Doomed,” a solo exhibition by Cameron Gray, will run July 26 through Aug. 23 at the Robert Berman Gallery at Berga-mot Station.
Gray’s “paintings” are pain-staking assemblages of credit-card size mini-tableaux, put together to form portraits. This body of work, which makes up Gray’s second solo exhibition at the Robert Berman Gallery, addresses politics, religion, ideology, nature, commerce, media and society’s propensity for violence.
His work begins as digital studies, which are divided into hundreds of small pieces and then sent out to a group of artists composed of personal associates, professional colleagues and Internet correspondents. By breaking the painting down into a grid of pixels and outsourcing the work, Gray builds a virtual factory by way of the Internet. Each painting is comprised of several smaller paintings.
Bergamot Station is at 2525 Michigan Ave., Bldg. C2 in Santa Monica. For more information, visit www.robertbermangallery.-com.
