Next to Nothing Gallery presents This and That, an exhibition of new work from two noted New York artists, Justen Ladda and Brigitte Engler. Both artists explore transformation, process, physicality and mark-making. The exhibition will be on view at 181 Orchard St, New York, from May 25th- June 24th, 2017, with an opening reception for the artists on May 25, 6-9pm.

This and That will feature Justen Ladda’s “mirrors”, elliptical contemplations and reflections hand-painted on red cedar wood using metal leaf and resin; and Brigitte Engler’s sidewalk graffiti encaustic paintings, constructed using a frottage rubbing technique, handmade paper and beeswax.

These contemplations and amplifications of humble subjects, explore the coming together of man, nature and the artist's eye. Ladda and Engler are interested in modernity intersecting and/or colliding into our natural and built environment, and both are influenced by the mindfulness and meditation of Tai Chi and Chinese scholar rocks.

About the Artists:

Justen Ladda has lived and worked in New York since 1978. He is widely known for his Neo-pop installations transforming commercial objects into what Ken Johnson calls “fantastic, illusory tableaus”. Working primarily in painting, installation and photography, the major themes that form the conceptual framework for his art making are change, transformation, balance and beauty.

Born in Paris, artist Brigitte Engler has called the Lower East Side her home since she came to New York in 1980 to study at the Whitney Independent Study Program and worked as an art reporter for Paper magazine. Her work has been exhibited in group and solos shows. Several artist projects in collaboration with editor of Semiotext(e) Sylvère Lotringer were published in the US. In 2016 she collaborated with a French ecological government agency to present an immersive video and sound art installation submerged in a medieval tidal mill. This year, Engler had a one-person show at the Spring/ Break Art Show 2017/ Black mirror.

About Next to Nothing Gallery:

Next to Nothing Gallery feature both established and emerging contemporary artists. A unique selection of historical art and artifacts contextualize the gallery’s mission. With a primary interest in the traditional mediums of painting and sculpture, Next to Nothing Gallery focuses on work revelling in materiality, or viscerally display the scars of time.
