PHOTO:OBJECT is an exhibition of "photographs" which push the boundary of "object." Curated by lydia see
from works submitted through an open call, interpretations to this constraint represent many cross-disciplinary
approaches. The show was designed as an instigation to makers to set constraints, challenge their studio practice,
take risks, and shake shit up. 

Featuring over 15 artists including Krista Allison, Lauren Bacchus, Eli Blasko, Paul Choi, Gray Hales, Clark
Hodgin, Brighton Kilgore, Kelsey Magnuson, Jeff Mason, Susan Alta Martin, M. HoneyBee Mckee, lydia see,
Shon Swett, Brett Wyatt and others.

Andy Herod – Sorry I Made it Weird: Portraits of People You May Know
PUSH Gallery | 25 Patton Ave - Asheville, NC 28801
Opening Reception: August 19
th | 6-9pm

PORTRAITS OF PEOPLE YOU MAY KNOW: Artist Andy Herod's latest collection opens at PUSH Gallery on Friday, Aug. 19 and runs through Tuesday, Oct. 4. Who knows, maybe your image will be among the featured works.

What is the algorithm Facebook uses to assign the suggested connections for each user?
Do they look familiar? Do we already know them? Should we? How and why do we have
access to them? These are all questions Andy Herod will be exploring in his new series
Sorry I Made it Weird: Portraits of People You May Know. Nationally known as a
printmaker and multidisciplinary artist and musician, Herod is unpacking the cultural
zeitgeist of social media with this work, attempting to tackle the unseen narratives which
tether us through the internet, following a thread through social media, out of the computer
screen, and in to our homes.

Herod has chosen to paint people he decidedly does not know for these portraits, causing
both the subject and artist to consider access and privacy. Well known for his non-human
subject- matter, Herod is interested in experimenting with portraiture, and states “this is a
departure for me - Facebook is a part of my everyday life, and I'm interested in what I don't
like about it, and in the privacy we have given up in our lives because of our reliance on social
networks.”

Herod incorporates the use of painting and printmaking processes to produce images rooted
in classical portraiture based on the most common contemporary application of the portrait:
the profile picture. By culling the “people you may know” section of Facebook for portraits
and re- contextualizing them on the gallery wall, Herod is shifting these real people to
fictionalized characters, and from one box to another – the computer screen to the “white box.”

Inhabiting the spaces between familiar and strange, acquaintance and friend, intimate and
antagonist, these works ask for a willingness to engage from the viewer, who might encounter
people they may know, or want to know, through this exhibition.

PUSH is pleased to host Sorry I Made it Weird: Portraits of People You May Know, new
work from Asheville artist,
Andy Herod on August 19th from 6-9pm

 

 
Sunset Motel art show at PUSH Gallery

Sunset Motel
Reception: Friday, June 24 6-10pm
PUSH Gallery 25 Patton Ave. Asheville

“Sunset Motel” marks the 3rd exhibition by artist couple and collaborators, Brock Forrer and 
Ally Alsup. Since moving to North Carolina from Alaska a year ago, Alsup and Forrer have
changed their medium and direction from printmaking and sculpture, to large scale acrylic
paintings. Their imagery is a combination of graphic portraiture, architecture, and vintage
ephemera. With no obvious concepts being drawn on, the duo relies on the narrative between
their work and imagery to convey meaning and intention. Overall, “Sunset Motel” is the artists’
everyday depiction of what it has meant to leave home and start over in a completely new place.

Remember that time in 1984 when we found your brothers Judas Priest record and went into the attic and lit candles

and played it backwards and it told us to steal my sisters barbies and melt their heads together til it looked like a rad

goat headed demon then we had to hide the evidence in that abandoned school in the woods behind our neighborhood

so we wouldnt get caught and we found all those playboys in the leaves with the eyes cut out and pentagrams drawn all

over em?!?

This is gonna be just like that.”
