"Edge of All Things," a three-person exhibition with Zachari Logan and Eric Rhein, CLAMP, NY. (January 12 – March 4, 2023)
CLAMP is pleased to present “Edge of All Things,” a three-person show with artworks by Zachari Logan, Eric Rhein, and Adam Liam Rose.
The edge of objects and spaces—the perimeters and borders—is what delineates them for the human eye to see and for the human mind to perceive. The edges are integral to the understanding of the whole.
The exhibition, “Edge of All Things,” includes drawing, assemblage, photo-based work, and installation, which all explore the essence of line and the periphery of objects represented. The three artists included in the show—Zachari Logan, Eric Rhein, and Adam Liam Rose—all explore geographies that engage notions of embodiment, self-reflexive histories, memory, landscape, and mortality.
Embodying three distinct and separate generations of queer men, these artists nonetheless all exist in liminal spaces both physically and emotionally within larger mainstream society. As such, all three have evolved their own individualistic and idiosyncratic use of materials to engage with space as effected by their own personal lived realities. Work by each artist reflects inner worlds that hint at the power of intimacy, vulnerability, and the recognition of the queer body as a vessel of exploration and transformation. Artworks by these individuals draw meaning to the surface through the invocation of private worlds and interpersonal topographies—edges that touch the eye to reveal the marginal as essential in understanding and interpreting the world as a whole.
