Solo Presentation by Shane Hope at The Armory Show

Winkleman Gallery is pleased to announce our participation in The Armory Show, presenting a solo booth of new work by Shane Hope. The 2013 edition of The Armory Show will be held from March 7 – 10 on Pier 94 on Manhattan’s West Side.

Our stand number is 534.


Our booth at The Armory Show will consist of three interrelated bodies of work: pigment prints, lenticular (holographic) prints and wall-mounted reliefs.  In the first two, Hope creates works with a computer that are then produced by fine art printers.  Using a dazzling array of biomorphic and geometric forms in bright colors against a black field, these works impart a maximum of retinal stimulation.  The lenticular works are created using a holographic technique which further enhances the idea of a three dimensional space teeming with opulent imagery. In all cases, while digitization is used in their creation, Hope’s works are unique and not editioned, further signaling his aspiration that his work be judged using the same criteria as traditional works of art

The reliefs are the most recent innovation in Hope’s work.  Using a 3D printer he built himself, Hope outputs thousands of forms in PLA (polylactic acid—an archival form of plastic).  He then composes and arranges these forms on a wall-mounted support.  The interplay of color, form and texture produces masterful painterly results.

Hope is deeply interested in the molecular science which will soon allow humans to create biological matter from scratch. Rather than fearing this technology, Hope embraces it by harnessing this futuristic software and imaging techniques to make art. He sees his process as using these machines "like a paint brush."

Shane Hope received his MFA from the University of California San Diego in 2002 and has attended the University of California Los Angeles, the San Francisco Art Institute, and the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. He has exhibited at Virgil de Voldere Gallery in New York; I-20 in New York; Project Gentili, in Prato, Italy; iMAL (interactive Media Art Laboratory) in Brussels, Belgium, Rosamund Felson Gallery in Los Angeles and Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects. His work will be featured in the Fall 2013 exhibition entitled “Dissident Futures” at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts! in San Francisco.
