NEW YORK, NY.- Rachel Uffner Gallery is presenting solo exhibitions of new work by David Armacost and Nikholis Planck. Often working within arms reach of each other, the artists have mounted concurrent shows which are individually articulated, yet share a similar interrogation of painting. To describe the related narratives and processes evident in the work, the exhibitions are being brought together under the title Open Time.

Open Time is synonymous with a window of opportunity or potential; in this case an extended moment when the artist is especially receptive to creative motivations and sensitivity, coming from within the self, or without. The works on display here begin to build an alchemy of painting through the development of both material interactions and psychic processes over time. In each room, the artist establishes a unique navigation within painting by layering personal experience and impulsive proposition.

Rachel Uffner Gallery’s two spaces simultaneously play host to these artists’ parallel narratives, continuing the trail of conversations, projects, and installations that refine a self-referential approach in which past work is called upon to produce new theatrical arrangements. A sense of urgency is embedded in each exhibition, a fascination with performance, and an interest in blurring the line where studio practice ends and public exhibition begins.

David Armacost (b. 1979, Baltimore, MD) has exhibited paintings in group shows throughout New York including I Know What You Did Last Summer at SOLOWAY, Narrow Waves at Interstate Projects, and Bad Fog at Martos Gallery. In April, Armacost completed a series of bimonthly installations at Franklin Street project space in Baltimore, which were collected under the name Year of Flowers. Since 2012, Armacost has been continuously involved with artist-run spaces, organizing dozens of projects and exhibitions at both Evening Hours in New York and sophiajacob in Baltimore. He lives and works in Brooklyn, and this will be his first solo exhibition in New York.
