303 Gallery is pleased to present a selection of works by Nick Mauss.
Throughout his practice, Nick Mauss is concerned with activating unexpected commonalities between performance, collaboration, and intersecting media. Working with a broad range of sensibilities and referents, Mauss establishes tenuous compositions where traces of figures, objects, patterns and gestures layer on top of and through each other, in a perpetual interplay of revealing and obscuring. Intimately scaled, his drawings and paintings explore ideas of fragmentation through their emotionally charged configurations.
Over the years, Nick Mauss has developed his own approach to verre eglomise. As in his drawings, these works act as porous structures, on which disparate elements intertwine and splintered dialogues unfold. The mirrored glass paintings become animated as they reflect the viewer and their surroundings, absorbing real space as yet another layer.
Mauss’ 2018 work, “Images in Mind” is currently installed at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York as part of The Whitney’s Collection: Selections from 1900-1965, and will remain on view until May 2022. His book “Transmissions”, which expands on his 2018 exhibition at the Whitney, was released earlier this year from Dancing Foxes Press and Yale University Press.
