AMH is pleased to present Aneta Bartos and Nick Weber in JACK & JILL curated by Anne Huntington to be on display at 144 10th Avenue (nr. 19th st) in Chelsea, NYC.
Bartos and Weber fluidly breathe haunting life into two-dimensional photographs and paintings, respectively, with such essence that the works bring forth a universal force. There is a duality of existence that is simultaneously light and dark; modern and nostalgic; erotic and romantic that invites the viewer into specific, yet open-ended worlds. Powerfully reflecting on the human psyche, childhood lessons learned, and acceptance granted or denied. The images arouse dangerous emotion with a fantastical dreamlike tone. We encounter humanity at its core, portals into ecstasy, challenging the viewer to experience various states of grace, to break through life’s defined states of sexuality in beautiful, disturbing and organic mediums. Bartos and Weber continue the figurative tradition, following the paths of Mapplethorpe and Bacon.
