The upcoming exhibition of works will feature a combination of cast dirt and cast resin sculptures by James Croak, in addition to Ashley Collins’ signature paintings on wooden panels.
Based in Sag Harbor, New York, James Croak has produced a distinctive body of sculpture over the past twenty-five years. Using a variety of innovative materials and techniques, including taxidermy, latex rubber, tar and his trademark cast dirt, Croak creates work of presence and feeling.
Following the establishment of her studio in Venice, California, Ashley Collins has broken ground creating mega–scale, contemporary and layered paintings of horses. Collins’ technique incorporates collage with book pages from the 1800s to mid-1900s, obscured book covers and historical images, among other unique layers.
