Marc Brotherton and Nina Carelli open solo shows at Causey Contemporary
The View from Daffy’s Hole, Etching, Magnani Arturo celadon paper, 16 x 12 in. edition 1/10.

BROOKLYN, NY.- Causey Contemporary presents two solo exhibitions this April, New Paintings by Marc Brotherton and Acid Bath by Nina Carelli. Marking his third solo exhibition with the gallery, Brotherton presents his newest series of bold, mixed-media paintings, which explore ideas of new technology, communication, color and design.

Marc Brotherton contends that living in the twenty-first century, we are constantly bombarded by input– be it from televisions, news sources, the internet, or one of the many communication gadgets. In a way, Brotherton’s paintings are a form of communication, which address technological and political quandaries, but also banalities of daily life. The outcome of his work is a materialized investigation into the perplexing world in which we live. Brotherton states that his incentive to make art comes from an “...inner curiosity, a personal necessity to acknowledge an awareness that we are here together inhabiting an increasingly chaotic world.”

Brotherton is an Atlanta-based aritist, who received his BFA from the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque and his MFA degree from Brooklyn College, NY. He has held five solo exhibitions in New York City, and two in Georgia. His work has been featured in many group exhibitions across the country, more notably with the George Billis Gallery in NYC, Kiang Gallery, The Dalton Gallery, and at The Museum of Contemporary Art, all in Atlanta, GA. Additionally, He is currently one of the Artists in Residence at the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center. Marc’s work has been mentioned in the pages of The New York Times, NY Arts Magazine, Flash Art and The Albuquerque Journal. He has recently begun teaching as an art professor at Kennesaw State University.

The title, Acid Bath, references the antiquarian etching process: zinc plate drawings are surrendered into a bath of nitric acid. It is there where a mysterious transformation occurs, where all aspects of predictability and limitation dissolve. Nina's imagery flows between different realms, some rooted in nature, and some culled from her own absurd inventions. Various motifs, including astronomy, nostalgia, and alchemy, simultaneously overlap and create contradictions. As these references combine and react with one another, a multitude of interpretations emerge from this eclectic array of works.

Nina received her BFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York City and is currently living and working in Brooklyn, NY. She has participated in group exhibitions at the Brooklyn Artists’ Gym, CultureFix Gallery, Greenpoint Gallery, Coo Gallery, Sacred Gallery and Causey Contemporary, all in New York, as well as at the Featherstone Center for the Arts in Martha’s Vineyard and The Monmouth Museum in New Jersey. Ms. Carelli is the editor of the self-published art magazine and collective, CREEPS, which has been printed annually in 2010 and 2011 as an editioned publication. Her work has been reviewed in the Visual Arts Magazine and Vice Magazine. In 2010 she was awarded the Shakespeare and Co. Bookmaking Grant and in 2011 the Silver Cube from the Art Director’s Club.
