Summary:"This monographic exhibition features more than fifty works created by Engels the Artist over the past en years. Born in Haiti, the artist has been living in Brooklyn for more than three decades. For Engels, the canvas is a limited space that requires subversion, inversion, expansion, or containment. He engages in a sort of metonymic game, whereby the container becomes the contained, and the support becomes the object itself. For example, the fabric of the canvas, the wood of the stretcher, and the metal staples are all part of his iconography. Abstract and poetic, his sculptural paintings are both aesthetically appealing and profoundly meaningful. According to the artist, 'The strict economy of line and texture, the use of everyday objects, and makeshift elegance recall my grandmother's home in Port-au-Prince, which against all odds had splendor.' The exhibition will include an artist residency during which Engels will create new works inside the museum."--Publisher's description from Worldwide Books.
